This pair of turkey salt and pepper shakers includes a fat Tom and a hen,both about 3 1/4" high. They date from about 1960 and are marked Japan on the base. The turkeys are dark chocolate brown with a shiny glaze. They are decorated in whimsical green dots and red and white accent marks.
They turkeys have no damages, but there is slight wear to the red paint on the heads. The red ceramic paint used 50 years ago was applied last and fired at a lower temperature, so this wear is a common finding on ceramics of this era.
