This playful Mid-Century red and white striped Chip and Dip Set Designed by Yona for Shafford, Japan, is named Country Club. The bright red and white stripes on the five-piece set a fun picnic atmosphere, or even a circus feeling, and will be great at your next party! The red stripes fluctuate with the shape of each piece and range between 1-3/8 and 3/4-inches in width. The words “Chips, Crackers, Snacks, and Dip” on each respective bowl are written in black script, with a black ribbon flourish above and below. The cover is topped with a red and white button knob.
Country Club was designed by Yona Ceramics for Shafford, Japan during the 1950s. Each bowl is marked in black “Country Club Designed by Yona 8749Y.”
The largest, the Chips bowl, is 6-1/4 inches in diameter and 3-1/8 inches deep. Crackers: 5-5/8 inch diameter, 2-7/8 inches deep. Snacks: 5-inch diameter, 2-3/4-inch deep. Dip: 4-1/2 inches diameter, 2-1/2 inches deep. The cover fits down on the inner rim of the Dip bowl and measures 4-inches in diameter.
These Country Club items are vintage pottery pieces and may have minor flaws such as tiny edge nicks and non-discolored crazing. The circus-like colors are bright with minimal wear. The largest bowl, "Chips," has several tiny edge nicks and one larger edge chip about 3/16-inch in diameter. The next size, the Crackers bowl, also has tiny edge nicks and one edge chip about 1/8-inch in diameter. The third bowl, Snacks, also has tiny edge nicks, the largest about 1/16th inch. The smallest, Dip, has a 1/16-inch edge nick with a barely visible 1/4-inch hairline that does not go down beyond the inner rim and another 1/4-inch hairline directly across from it. The cover also has a 1/8-inch edge nick. The two yellowish lines in the photo are sticker residue. There is non-discolored crazing. To preserve the bright colors, wash by hand before use.
