Today I'm listing a collection of pewter muffineers, sugar sifters or pepper shakers (generally different names for the same thing except pepper shakers tend to have smaller, round wholes). They are being listed and priced separately, but the last photo of each listing will show you the whole group....just in case you are ready for a whole collection!
This 18th century pepper shaker has a rounded top with no finial, a stepped foot with a rounded step terminating into a square base. Nice fat round belly. The top screws on and off easily but is bent. The shaker holes are round and naïvely made and placed in that they are not all the same size and are not evenly spaced. Touchmark on the bottom is a crowned X. Louis XV, Circa 1740-50. 5 1/4" tall x 2 1/4" square base.
