When I went home to clean out my Mother's house I found some thing I remembered being in the house from the time I was a small child. These two silver pheasants were one of the few things I brought home with me. My Mother always kept them sitting on the dining room table or in a hutch.
The birds are fairly heavy and appear to be silver. They are salt and pepper shakers and to fill them you screw off the heads. I have never seen anything like them in any antique shops or flea markets that I have visited (and I have visited quite a few). Has anyone else ever seen similar salt and pepper shakers?
I decided to use them as part of my Christmas decoration this year.
