" JAPAN / JAPANESE MOTHER AND CHILD " "SNUGGLE / NESTER" SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS. The 1960 NAPCO "International Mother and Child" Series of at least six different countries in native costumes are unique sets. With the Child "snuggled or nestled" on the Mother's lap. I have also seen these in a collector guide book as a "Girl and Her Doll"! They are Porcelain, hand painted with vivid colors and beautiful facial expressions.The MOTHER is 3-1/2"tall, 3" wide, 3-1/4" long, the CHILD is 2-1/2" tall, 2" wide , 2" long. Both are in MINT condition , NO finger or arm damage, NO chips or cracks, minimal to NO paint wear, minimal lite crazing on the Mother, none on the Child, NO scratches or rubs.
They do not have their rubber stoppers, but both are green Ink Stamped "NAPCO, 1960, #3N4970", and the Mother also has residue from a NAPCO sticker. A UNIQUE, and Extremely Rare Set! If you collect old, rare shaker sets, this will be a wonderful addition!
