One of my uncles gave me this a looong time ago. A salt shaker made from a 50 cal. Don't know if there was ever a pepper shaker but if there was I never saw it. He was on the Bonhomme Richard during WW2.

That's actually pretty cool! Is the bottom "filling plug" solid or hollowed out?  I've got a pair from WW1 made from some type of small shells that may have been cut down, I'm not sure. A nice family heirloom for sure. Thanks for posting it.

The solid base is a real plus as it adds more weight to keep it from tipping over as it is fairly tall.  A very nice piece of family history.
