These are generally described as seed shakers although there doesn't seem to be any direct evidence for this. Whatever the use they are a great coloured pair of items.

The tops rotate to give different sized holes, from small holes for poppy seeds? to larger ones for say sunflower or pumpkin seeds? The tops are removable for filling.

They were made of a Urea Formaldehyde material by BEF, probably in the 1950's but they could be older. The words B.E.F. Product and British Made are moulded into the base together with BEF set in a circle.

The shakers are 125mm high and about 40mm in diameter at the widest point. I currently have a green shaker in stock, which is in good condition.
