Just last month I posted Salty and Peppy – novelty Japanese salt and pepper shakers from the 60s- and here is version 2! The cats are still in barrels, but this time they are sans handles. These also pop up from their barrels when condiments are required, and their lidded hats screw off to place the salt and pepper.
The shakers are timber, hand-painted and this set, still in its original box, is unused. This time the cats are marmalade coloured [I think that’s the correct feline colour description] – the last pair were black cats. But the colour coding remains constant: Peppy has a red lid, Salty a white. And should you forget this, their names are helpfully written on the barrel.
As I noted last time – Salty and Peppy are a must for salt and pepper shaker collectors- or cat fanciers- or indeed cat-loving salt and pepper shaker collectors. And now you can JUST collect vintage-Japanese-timber-cat-salt-&- pepper shakers.
This set is for sale: $AUD45
