Description:  Canton pepper shakers are far rarer and considerably more expensive than their salt cellar companions. They are all pear shaped, they have 7-9 holes in the top mostly in a square pattern but also in a circle, and they have filling holes in the bottom which had corks. They range in size from 3 1/2″ high to 3 3/4″. The bottoms are glazed.
