$95.00 Shipping+Insurance $8.00
This playful vintage kitten nodder salt and pepper shaker is a highly desirable collectible. Made in Japan circa 1940's or 1950's. The ceramic base is decorated with delicate pink flowers with green outline leaves on the front and back. Trimmed in gold with gold painted script SALT and PEPPER on the front. Displayed on the front of the base is a round paper sticker that says "World Famous Indian Caverns, Spruce Creek, Penna.". The bottom is imprinted with "PATENT.T.T". The base is 2" high x 4" long x 1 1/4" wide. The adorable ceramic kitten heads and necks have exquisitely detailed painted faces. One is green with a pink bow and the other is orange with a yellow bow. Each has one large hole in the back of the head. Both pieces are imprinted with "PATENT T.T" on the stem. Each kitten is 3" high and 3/4" in diameter at the base. Neither kitten has a stopper. The green kitten has a pinhead sized paint chip on the back of the shoulder. The orange kitten has an approximately 1" hairline crack on the stem that sits inside the base of the set. Does not interfere with the appearance of the completed shaker. This consideration is reflected in the pricing. Add value to any collection with this highly prized nodder. From a private collection and never been used.
