This is a really rare Pluto the hound dog shaker from the 1940s with the original paper Japan label. I do not have the matching shaker, but this set is listed in the 1999 issue of Garage Sale and Flea Market Annual for $125.00 This little guy is in great condition, a bit of the cold paint is worn on the nose, tail, and collar back. This is a great old piece for the Disney collector. You can't see the shaker holes from the front, so he would still look great as a figurine.
