This listing has the larger size Aunt Jemima (Mammy) and Uncle Mose shaker set! They measure 5 1/8” tall and both have in-mold “F & F Tool and Die Co, Dayton, Ohio, Made in USA”. She is marked Aunt Jemima and he is marked Uncle Mose. They are in very good condition with some color loss and both are missing their plastic stoppers. Neat collectibles!
Neat Black American postcard in this listing! Postmark appears to be 1908, it’s faint so I couldn’t be positive. Card is in very good condition for it’s age and is as shown in photos.

I purchased these two kitchen towels sometime ago at the same estate sale where I purchased the “risqué” towel set that we recently sold! Like those towels, these had never been used and had faint storage lines and a musty smell – I have laundered, lightly starched, and ironed them and they turned out great with vivid colors! These towels are not the “new” issues that are surfacing – I have seen those and they are made of very lightweight material...
Very nice ethnic chalkware pieces! There are two in listing and each has a hook at bottom to hang a potholder. Measure 5” long, 5 ¼” wide (at widest) and are in very good condition with evidence of use and age. They have color wear that is attractive to the pieces instead of detracting, one has sustained a chip to and by his thumb that someone touched up with black marker (see photo), has sustained a slice type chip to a top corner of the watermelon, and has another older chip on the back...
Very nice salt and pepper shaker set – the taller Aunt Jemima and Uncle Moses! Made by F & F, shakers measure 5” tall, are in very good condition, and still have their original plastic stoppers. They have minor color wear and the only “use” evidence is on Uncle – he has sustained 2 chips on his shoes. One shoe has a chip on the front side, the other has one on the back side – doesn’t effect use, he stands level but is less than perfect and priced accordingly.

These are original F & F productions, they are NOT reproductions.
