Salt and pepper shakers; ca. 1960 AD; CC39
Salt and pepper shakersAbout this object
This set of salt and pepper shakers was used by Miss Marion Steven alongside the Logie Collection for teaching white-ground and Rhodian ware to her university students. Miss Steven founded the Logie Collection in 1957 and frequently used resources and photographs that she had obtained overseas for her teaching.
The salt shaker depicts a warrior and the pepper shaker depicts two animals, possibly antelopes, grazing. The decoration is in black-figure on a white-ground surface with patterning reminiscent of the Greek Orientalising period around the 8th Century BC.
Greek Orientalising decoration was designed for certain shapes and curves. The shakers demonstrate how this decoration did not work so well on smaller surfaces.
