Rare vintage Napco ceramic egg cup of a man wearing a tuxedo. His black top hat is removable and is actually a salt shaker. It has a rubber stopper. This is a very rare egg cup made by NAPCO. Originally this was part of a set of two egg cups, a male, wearing a tux, and a female, wearing a kimono. Both had hats which doubled as salt shakers. There is one small chip on the back of the bottom rim which can't be seen from the front and a tiny chip near the bottom of his shirt. One pith mark on the inside of the head. It has normal crazing. No cracks. The bottom bears the NAPCO hallmark, two crossed arrows, and the number 7967, which is the number of the pattern I believe. Cup stands about 6" high and bottom is about 4" across. Very interesting stylized egg cup.
