It all started at the new Love of Jesus Thriftique in the west end. I found salt shaker and set out to look for his mate. I searched high and low, but no twin. He was only a dollar so I thought, he’s kind of cool, I will get him anyway.
I got home and did some internet research and found out the companion piece I was looking for was a lady! I also found out his name is Mr. Pickwick.
Back this week to the Thriftique! I walk in the front door and immediately inside is the jewelry case. I stop to check out the case and right on top, like she is sitting there waiting for me to return, is the lady pepper shaker.
I notice on her back is not the name Pickwick as the internet research I did was calling her. I then Googled Artone England (the marking on it) and salt and pepper shakers and find out they are part of a set of 6 shakers. They are based on Charles Dickens characters. The lady is Little Nell.
I guess I might make one more trip back to see if I can find any of the other 4!
He does look better as a pair, doesn’t he?
