This set of salt and pepper shakers have red and white alternating panels in a twisting pattern around the body. The body of the shakers is beveled. On the front of each shaker is a yellow rose. The white portion of the shakers is pearlized and the shakers appear to be handpained. The tops of the shakers are blue. Both shakers have metal tops and cork stoppers.
These shakers are old and do have wear to the paint. The bottom of one shaker is also badly discolored. On the same shaker with the bottom discoloration, the cork stopper is broken off, but is still present. There are no chips, cracks or crazing on either shaker.
The shakers are marked on the bottom in red with the word "Japan." These were probably made between 1921-1945, although I cannot narrow down the date any further than that.
Each shaker measures approximately 3 1/2 inches tall and 2 inches wide across the top.
