WONDERFUL PAIR OF VINTAGE PORCELAIN, CHRISTMAS SANTA CLAUS SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS. What a great pair of old Santa salt an pepper shakers. Rich, vibrant hand painted coloration. Beautiful detailing into the molds. Many ceramic companies produced a full line of Holiday, Birthday decorative Angel, pixie figurines, and whimsical figural salt and pepper shakers during the 1940's-1960's, along with Lefton, Inarco, Napco and other factories of that time. It was considered the "Golden Age" of ceramic and porcelain Holiday decorations such as these! Both Santa shakers are in very good vintage condition, free of chips or cracks, as shown in the photos. Both have cork stoppers in their bottoms. They measure about 3" tall. There is an original paper sticker on the bottom, "JAPAN". Produced and imported to the U.S. for sale in five and dime stores across the country. For more information and history on vintage Christmas items, visit The Golden Glow of Christmas Past web site.
