The shakers were the same - they were both salt ones and not one of pepper and one of salt.
Hi Mary, Thank you for the positive review. Yes, this shaker set has 3 holes in each of the salt and pepper shakers. It is more of a decorative piece. We do try to show accurate photos of each product and this one has a few photos showing both having 3 holes. If you are not 100% happy with your purchase, we accept returns. Thank you again!
