For sale is a pair of 1940s Syroco Wood salt and pepper shakers. This pair of salt and pepper shakers was sold to tourists at a souvenir shop located near the Grand Canyon National Park. They are made of Syroco Wood, material very popular at the time used to make plaques, sconces, kitchenware, etc. The pair is made in great detail. Please excuse the photos because they made the shakers look like they are shiny but they have a satin matte type of finish. The Indian Chief wears a full headdress made of eagle feathers, with medallions with foxtails at each side of his cheekbones. He has a necklace around his throat, full bone breastplate and is wearing fringed buckskin decorated with Indian symbols. He sits crossed legged with a peace pipe cradled in his hands. The back of the shaker has the same intricate detailing with the back of the base stamped with a copyright symbol with what looks like “M-D 1/49.” There are marks for four holes for pepper. One hole is decorative, not drilled through. Just like her mate, the Indian princess mother is sitting cross legged but leaning forward clutching her baby who is straddled inside a papoose. You can see the baby’s eyes, nose and mouth with his full cheeks and a full head of hair. The Indian mother is wearing a decorative headband, with a feather at the side. Her hair is carefully braided and rests against her cheeks. There is a small hole (a toothpick fits inside) on her chest which is original to the piece. She is wearing fringed doeskin with scalloped decorations around the top cape. There is a decorative SW style pot by her knee. The back of the salt shaker is very detailed from the lines on the papoose backboard to the fringe on the doeskin. There remains a partial label “Grand Canyon” National Park. There are four completely drilled holes for the salt. The base is stamped with the copyright symbol “M-P-I 49.” The shakers are about 2-3/4” x 1-1/4” x 1-/4” in size. Both shakers have their original corks in the bottom. These shakers are in great condition for their age, and would make a wonderful addition to your collection. Or they would look great on a table in a cabin, or in a kitchen of a Southwest style home. Was $24. Sale Price: Price: $18.
