These cat salt and pepper shakers are from the 1940's or 50's and are stamped Japan underneath. The larger cat head has larger holes and therefore is for pepper and the smaller cat for salt. The underside of the base measures 3" X 2". The height is 2 3/8". They still have what looks like their original cork stoppers which is unusual. On the forehead of the larger cat are two what look like chips. But I don't think that they are since they have the same exact color as the surrounding area instead of appearing white.
