The metal stand for this Arthur Court 3 piece magnolia salt and pepper set is manufactured using Arthur Court's signature premium aluminum alloy, and is designed with pretty magnolia petals, formed into small cups which hold the glass salt and pepper cylinders in place. The twist-off stainless steel caps are designed for ease in re-filling.This ensemble is so attractive you won't want to put it away.
This delicate little salt-and-pepper set is a sweet accessory to display alongside other Arthur Court magnolia-design serveware but is versatile enough to pair with any formal tableware. Each miniature shaker is designed in a cylindrical shape out of swirled glass and stands about 3 inches tall with a slim 1/2-inch diameter. The screw-on lids are made of stainless steel to avoid staining or pitting from the salt. The shakers rest within graceful magnolia buds on a hand-crafted stand, which also features detailed leaves and a branch for a handle. The brilliant luster of the stand captures the elegance of antique silver; however, it is actually made of hand-polished aluminum, which is much easier for today's busy hostesses to maintain. The stand is not dishwasher-safe but cleans easily with mild soap and water--and, because the shakers are breakable, it is advisable to wash them by hand as well. This set makes a wonderful shower gift for the bride who has registered for other pieces in the magnolia collection. As Arthur and Elena Court, owners of Arthur Court Designs, are avid conservationists, a percentage of all proceeds of their products go directly to wildlife preservation and environmental research and education projects. --Cristina Vaamonde
