George Lefton China "Turn About Graduate" Boy & Girl S/P Shakers
A very unique and unusual novelty set of salt and pepper shakers were produced in he mid-1950's. Called turn-about shakers, they differed in design from front to back. One side shows the boy and girl attired in their graduation cap and gown, each holding their diploma. The other side depicts the boy in work clothes and holding a shovel, as in digging ditches; the girl in a waitress outfit serving customers in a restaurant. The overall deeper meaning was to get ready for manual labor if you do not prepare yourself for college and a better life. The shakers measure 3 1/2" in height. Each are marked "Geo. Z Lefton 1956". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some minor paint wear on edge of graduation caps. A rare set of Lefton S/P shakers.
