John Beswick Salt & Pepper



It is believed that a salt shaker was first invented in 1858, by John Mason, a tinsmith from America, but it wasn’t until the 1920’s that sets of salt and pepper shakers were commonly manufactured, and later they became even more popular due to cost effectiveness of ceramic production. Also in the 1920s the addition of magnesium carbonate to the salt to prevent lumps and clumping caused by moisture, made it easier to pour and enhanced their popularity even further. Made from a variety of materials Salt and Pepper pots became highly collected and the appeal of novelty designs made them not only decorative but also humorous and a point of discussion around the dinner table. New for 2016, these John Beswick condiment sets follow in the tradition of novelty designs. Each set is made up of a loving couple with names to fit their interests and types. Basil and Sybil combines the loveable Basil Brush Fox motif with the not quite so loveable Basil and Sybil Fawlty. For the Motorbike enthusiast there are Harley and David ready to hit the road and from Home Farm Barney and Hayley. Finally, for those who enjoy the most participated sport in Britain, fishing, Rod and Netty are all tackled up and ready to show off the ones which didn’t get away. Made from ceramic, these John Beswick Novelty Salt and Peppers make a practical gift or amusing collection. Save 20% on all John Beswick Novelty Salt and Peppers at Kings and Queens.
