Novelty salt and pepper shakers made in Occupied Japan - 1940s vintage
Novelty sets of salt and pepper shakers made in Occupied Japan. Ceramic with both transfer and painted details. There are souvenir quality, not fine ceramics. Each is stamped on the bottom and have corks to hold in the spices.
Listing is for one of four pairs of shakers. Choose from:
- Handled white shakers from Santa's Village, North Pole NY (molding flaw on the top of one)
- Fish marked with a decal Souvenir of Baltimore MD (both decals are chippy, one is almost gone)
- Pair of birds, one tail up, one tail down.
- Pair of chipmunks, which, unlike regular chipmunks will not dig holes everywhere in your yard and take exactly one bite out of your tomatoes exactly on the day they ripen. But I digress.
CONDITION Very good. Any noticeable flaws are noted above.
