Artist Information: Ruth Van Tellingen, was a children’s book illustrator. In the 1940s she was asked to design several products for the Regal China Co. / Royal China and Novelty Co. One of those lines became “Snuggle-Hugs” Salt & Pepper shakers featuring whimsical animals and insects. They were designed to fit together in a hugging position known today as “Huggers”. A clever design feature as both can be easily picked up and the salt and pepper dispensed at the same time using one hand. Made from 1947 – 1963 in Antioch, Illinois.
