Really adorable little red dog or vermillion puppy shakers with big black bows around their necks. These dog shakers are a very nice matched pair, and the color glaze is rich and vibrant. They have little black tails and are in a seated position. From the quality and styling I have dated them to around the thirties, but it's hard to know for sure. They are marked "Japan" on the bottom, and ceramics from Japan were often made in the same designs for a couple decades. They have an unusual design feature in that the holes for the salt and pepper are part of the design of their muzzle, rather than the top of their heads, as is more usual.
CONDITION: Excellent with no chips, cracks, or nicks. They don't seem to have been used ever. One has the original cork, on the other it is missing.
SIZE: 2 1/2 inches tall.

SHAKERS: I lightly clean all my vintage salt and pepper shakers - however they are vintage, and some have been used over the course of their lifetime and may contain residue of salt or pepper. I try to eliminate as much of that as possible, but these items are often fragile in their decorations - most novelty shakers were not actually meant to be used so cannot be soaked or scrubbed. With original corks I leave them in, as to try and remove then could destroy them.
