I recently purchased a collection of vintage Van Tellingen, huggers salt and peeper shakers. This mark was only used between 1947 and 1951. They are This pair is, "bear Hugs". The bears are primarily pink, and are a little over 3 inches tall. This pair has no visible markings, but are identical (except for color) to other bear hugs sets from the collection. They are in excellent condition. No corks. Circa 1950
As I write this, I have several pairs, and some single shakers that I will be listing in my shop over the next couple of weeks. I am always happy to combine shipping. To see them all, type, "huggers" in the California Girls search box at the top of the page.
If you are ordering more than 1 item from my shop, wait to pay until I send back an invoice with the combined shipping discount.
