This is a charming vintage salt and pepper shaker set that was hand painted and made in Japan by Empress. It is a 3 piece set, with the basket holding the two frogs, which come out. It has a foil label from Empress on the bottom of the basket and the frogs retain their cork stoppers. Someone wrote a date of 1959 on the underside of one and the lane Mary on the other, which can be seen in the photos., and the same on the underside of the basket. The basket edges are decorated with flowers and spaghetti trim and all pieces are in very good condition with no chips, cracks, repairs or crazing. Its about 3 & 1/4 inches high all put together and about 4 & 1/4 inches wide. A wonderful set from the mid century!
