Salt and Pepper
Jack and Jill
5 inches tall
3 inches wide
Collectible Salt and Pepper Shakers by Shawnee Pottery. The 1950's range sized set is a dutch couple, and was called Jack and Jill. The shakers are a little over 5 inches tall and about 3 inches wide. Jack is the salt shaker, with five holes, and Jill is the pepper shaker with four holes. The stoppers are missing.
Overall excellent vintage condition, commensurate with age and use. There is some minor paint loss around the bottoms, visible in the photos, where the brown paint has been worn off. There is also a very small strip of paint loss at the front edge of the brim of Jill's hat. No chips, cracks or crazing.
There is what looks like a manufacturing flaw around a couple of the holes on Jack, where it appears the glaze was unevenly applied, leaving a couple of tiny patches of bare pottery.Very popular maker and style, great gift for a collector of Shawnee or just a salt and pepper collector.
