WONDERFUL PAIR OF VINTAGE KREISS PORCELAIN, CHRISTMAS SANTA SKUNK SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS. What an unusual pair of old shakers. Yes, Santa skunks! Beautiful detailing into the cast porcelain molds. Many ceramic companies such as Napco, Inarco and Holt Howard, along with other factories of that time, produced a full line of Holiday, Birthday decorative Angel, pixie figurines, and whimsical figural salt and pepper shakers during the 1940's-1960's. It was considered the "Golden Age" of ceramic and porcelain Holiday decorations for pieces such as these! Great hand painted coloration to the little skunks, the sly look on their faces, decked out in their Santa hats. They are in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. They measure about 4" tall. Ink stamped on the bottom, "KREISS". For more information and history on vintage Christmas items, visit The Golden Glow of Christmas Past web site. What a great addition for your Christmas Holiday, Salt and Pepper collection!!!!!
