Green Glass Salt and Pepper Shakers – Catherine Johnson Milne

The salt and pepper shakers pictured here belonged to Catherine Johnson Milne (1846 – 1911). It is not known when or where Catherine obtained these items. It may have been when she and her husband William lived in West Flamborough, Wentworth County or after they moved to Elma Township, Perth County in the 1880s.

After Catherine’s death, the shakers remained in the family and were eventually passed to their current owner Katherine Milne Duncan who is a great granddaughter of Catherine.
