|These are Early American
salt shaker bottles & cruet or oil bottles & other condiment dispensers
& the castors that hold them.
A relatively small number of shakers were made to fit intowhat are called Castors
When the shakers and the castors matched, they are Castor Sets.
But "generic castors" were made to hold a variety of patterned shakers.
What we sell here is the glass. The metal parts mostly did not fare as well

We can't guarantee that any tops are original to any shaker after all these years..
