VINTAGE RED / PINK TRANSFER WARE SALT & PEPPER SHAKERS
I found these vintage red transfer ware salt and pepper shakers in a fabulous antique store in Georgia on my way back from South Carolina. I needed a break from driving and when I pulled off the freeway, I saw a sign for an antique shop and just had to stop.
They had the most beautiful items in their store and it was very difficult as to which items I wanted to purchase as they were all so beautiful!
Since I had red transferware dishes, I thought these would be a good selection and they were. However, I have purchased so many dish sets and serving pieces in the past that I am going to sell both my red transfer ware and blue transfer ware dishes and accessories so I can close my hutch doors!
These large red and cream colored salt and pepper shakers which have a beautiful smooth finish to them. They are decorated with exotic scenes of beautiful gardens, trees, flowers and figures. They are approximately 3" tall and 2" across. Vertical ridges on the sides for interest. There is a maker's mark of a coat of arms with two standing lions with a crown and a shield between them and a ribbon banner below. They are minus the corks but small corks are carried at hobby stores and are very inexpensive.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
