This darling little shaker set is a different Japan company version of the Sweet Shop series made by Enesco. They are holding up their baked pies or cakes! They are slightly different in that only the boy is winking and they are bit more crude in how they are made. Regardless, the Sweet Shop series is hard to come by and it can be fun to try to collect all of them including some of the vintage knock-offs…if you will!
Condition: Excellent condition. No chips or cracks and there is some clear minor crazing. The boys hat has some imperfections in it…i don’t know if they are mold flaws or if there were nips to the glaze and then touched up (but paint looks good). The girl has a few nibbles to the bottom lip of her base. Some slight paint wear or paint imperfections from the factory due to how they were made. Girl is missing her cork.
Measurements: 3 1/4”
Marks: blue Japan label
Age: Estimate 1950/60’s
