This fun S & P set consists of three pieces, the porter or bell hop and the two suitcases. The bellman appears to be hand painted with brightly colored blue jacket and red-orange pants and cap. The coat has gold buttons and the cap has a gold badge across the front. His arms are bent and his hands are turned inward to accommodate the handles on the ceramic suitcases. Each shaker has three holes and they are marked S and P accordingly. They both appear to have their original corks in the holes on the bottom. All three pieces are stamped; Japan. I believe this is from the 1930’s-1940’s period.
He measures about 4 ½” tall and the base measures about 2 ½” by 1 3/8”. The hand painted suitcases measure about 1 ½” by ½” by 1 ½” including the handles. All three pieces are in very good condition with no damage and almost no wear.
