WONDERFUL PAIR OF VINTAGE PORCELAIN, ELEPHANT AND CART SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS. What a great old salt and pepper shaker set for your table. Many ceramic companies produced a full line of Salt and Pepper Shakers, Holiday, Birthday and decorative Angel and pixie figurines 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 for pieces such as these. They would have been produced in Japan, and imported to the U.S. for sale in specialty stores across the country. Rich, vibrant hand painted coloration. Beautiful detailing into the molds. The two bundled stacks of wood are removable from the cart the elephant is pulling....those are the shakers. The salt and pepper set is in very good vintage condition, free of chips or cracks, as shown in the photos. Elephant and cart measures about 4 3/4" long, 4" tall, the shakers are about 2 1/4" tall, 2" wide. Cart is marked on the bottom with a paper sticker, "JAPAN". What a great addition for your Salt and Pepper collection!!!!!
