We've had ever since, no additional history known. Item is in good, vintage condition. Always Smoke Free & Pet Friendly. NODDER shaker sets consists of a base, with two holes on the top that the tubular-based shakers sit in.Each shaker is longer than usual and has a figural top with a long "tube" base for balance that sits down into the hole in the base with tiny flanges on either side near the top of the tube portion. The flanges enable the shaker to balance on the rims of the holes and nod up and down or back and forth when gently touched. Birds and animals are popular NODDER subjects as are people's heads nodding on their bodies or sticking out of barrels or bathtubs. There are four pieces in total. The basket with the snake, and the charmer head and the body.
This set was made by Royal Sealy, original tag on the bottom. Souvenir of Mobile, Al, tag on back. Gently nods back and forth.
