This vintage Crying Onion Anthropomorphic Onion Salt Shaker is an adorable piece of Mid-Century kitsch. On a light brown ground, a tearful face with squinty blue eyes decorates the front of this subtly ribbed, onion-shaped shaker. “Onion Salt” is stamped in black above the eyebrows. The shaker comes to a knot of green sprouts at the top in the shape of similar items listed in my shop.
The shaker is just over 3-inches tall and 3-inches in diameter at its widest. It has a 1-7/8 inch diameter foot.
Though there is no mark, this style was likely made in Japan circa the 1950s.
Other than non-discolored crazing, there are no condition issues.
