Sterling Silver Salt Cellars & Salt & Pepper Shakers

Sterling salt and pepper shakers lend class and sophistication to any dining table. From classic pairs to creative shapes, sterling silver salt and pepper shakers can make a statement with both form and function.

Sterling salt and pepper shakers come in a wide variety of forms from traditional and straightforward to ornate and whimsical. From Edwardian or Art Deco-style shakers to vessels designed in the shape of animals, sterling salt and pepper shakers can be found to suit any table setting or occasion.

Some of the most renowned producers of salt and pepper shakers include Tiffany & Co., Reed & Barton, Gorham, and Cristofle. When buying sterling salt and pepper shakers, it is important to look for the forger's mark, which will typically identify the silversmith and often, the year that it was produced.


Quick Facts

  • The term hallmark historically referred to the marks employed by silversmiths on the British Isles, but is now commonly used for all silversmith markings
  • Today, silver hallmark books allow for collectors to authenticate shakers and learn more about their origins
  • Antique salt and pepper shakers by reputable makers routinely sell for hundreds of dollars at auction, proving that the market for these small but prized collector’s items remains as strong as ever before
