This is a vintage spice rack made in Japan for Menschik Goldman. The rack holds 9 pottery occupational character mug style spice shakers, each with a different name and decoration. The names are Gary Garlic, Ludwig Nutmeg, Al Allspice, Simon Cinnamon, Murray Curry, Jim Ginger, Pete Paprika, Ellery Celery, and Willy Chili. The images are a combination of black transfer and hand painted accent colors. Each mug shaker is 2 3/4" wide with the handle and 2 1/8" tall. Some are crazed. All the shakers have corks, a Menschik Goldman backstamp in black, and a green and gold foil label that reads M.G. Japan on the base. The wooden rack is 9 5/8" x 10 1/4." There are two round indentations in the top that may have held salt and pepper shakers originally. There is a foil label and a black printed "C. Menschik Goldman Inc." on the back of the rack.
