Picking Salt and Pepper Shaker Styles

These table shakers are known for being collectible. Many homes feature new and vintage sets. Swap yours out frequently to change the mood or suit a certain cuisine alongside other small details, like napkin rings or placecard holders.

  • Minimalist shakers tend to focus on materials, like brass, marble, horn, wood or copper.
  • Figure-inspired shakers are often ceramic and feature figurines of animals or plants.
  • Formal styles may come in metal and feature sophisticated design themes.
