This adorable pair of figural eggheads was made in Japan c. 1950's. The couple are egg cups and their hats are salt and pepper shakers. The woman's hat retains the cork but it is missing on the man. Otherwise the pair is in excellent condition. The gentleman with handlebar mustache, blue eyes and bow tie, measures approximately 4 3/4" high. The woman looks demure with shut eyes, blond hair, and pointed pink and white striped hat. She is slightly taller than her beau. Both are stamped Japan on the underside with impressed numbers and retain the paper label on the back of the egg cups that reads: I am a little egghead and please use me as such If you will lift my hat for salt it would please me very much Japan. Part of the label on the man is missing; the one on the woman is complete. Cute as can be, this set will add a bit of cheer to start your day.
