1950s Vintage TV Salt & Pepper Shaker Set. This set measures about 3 inches tall and about 3.5 inches across. It does not have a makers mark but it is marked Pat. Pending and Made in the USA. This Mid Century Modern salt & pepper shaker set is a great conversation piece; the bottom button on the TV raises the salt & pepper shakers out of their cubicle.
In the last newsletter we explored whatnots and etageres, which were used to display tchotchkes and knick knacks in the 16th and 17th Centuries by the common folk. In about the same period, the rich and the well to do had curio cabinets, which referred to entire rooms where they stored and displayed what they called curios. Curios were thecollections of things that they may have had; not unlike tchotchkes and knick knacks, but you couldn’t tell them that. The rooms were usually designed and built with glass panels to protect the belongings from the curious and this is where we get our modern curio cabinets of today.
