WONDERFUL PAIR OF VINTAGE PORCELAIN, FUR TRIM BEARD 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. White fur trim beards. 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, very minimal paint loss due to age, as shown in the photos. No stoppers in the bottoms. They measure about 3" tall, 2 1/2" wide. There is an original silver paper sticker on the bottom, "NATIONAL POTTERIES CLEVELAND O MADE IN JAPAN". Produced in Japan, and imported to the U.S. for sale in specialty stores across the country.
