This is a bookcase I designed and had built from poplar by a friend's father eight years ago. I've painted it and applied fabrics and images with polyurethane. I change the display contents once a year or so. Featured in these images are much of my grandmother's circa 1930s salt-n-pepper shakers, as well as vintage toys, Friedel figurines (like Hummels), and the inevitable-for-me scale model cars. Some of the salt-n-pepper shakers are identical to each other, two lobster claws, two oranges or two bananas with faces, but others are a mixed pair, such as a bowling ball and pin, a rat and a piece of cheese, or a begging cat and dog. I have about 150 pairs in all. The vast majority are porcelain/ceramic, but some are an early plastic known as Bakelite. All photos are clickable to enlarge.
