Salty & Peppy [sold]

salty & peppySalty and Peppy
made in Japan, 1960s

Salty and Peppy are novelty salt and pepper shakers- in the form of cats- which pop out of their timber barrels when those condiments are required, and then settle back into them afterwards. The whole ensemble is timber- and their lidded caps screw off to allow the insertion of the salt and pepper.

The cats’ faces- all hand-painted- seem to have a mildly startled expression; perhaps due to finding themselves ensconced in a barrel in the first place. Certainly they are aware that they are part of quite a mixed metaphor!

The salt and pepper shakers have never been used, and the timber is in ‘as-new’ condition. A must for salt and pepper shaker collectors- or cat fanciers- or indeed cat-loving salt and pepper shaker collectors.

Salty and Peppy are for sale; $AUD45
