S & P Meet Tiger

A couple of nifty finds at the antique mall this week: an original Dakin Dream Pet tiger, and a set of "native guide" salt and pepper shakers, probably produced sometime in the 1950's or 60's as well. Two different sellers, but two treasures combined (for a total of $5!) to make a neat little African scene on my bookshelf. I'm not sure how these shakers work, they clearly have the "S&P" holes on them, but how do you get the salt and pepper inside?

(FYI: This is a test post, Blogger has been unbearably glitchy all week with uploading, formatting, and commenting... please stay tuned for more!)

more comments disappearing... not sure what the deal is but obviously there's something buggy going down in the bloggoverse. Keep commenting though people, I'm at least still getting the notifications in my email inbox.
