You are bidding on a very collectible, vintage, 3 piece set of Glazed, Terra Cotta, Earthenware, Black-Faced CLOWN Salt & Pepper Shakers and Sugar Bowl. The shakers are in the shape of little teapots. Each piece in this set has a wire-handle and stands on 3 feet. The shakers are marked, in gold, on the bottoms with DES. PAT. PEND. One still has a cork, the other does not. The bowl has a removeable lid. It is marked on the bottom DES. PAT. PEND and it also has sticker which read, "THAMES - Hand Painted - Made in Japan". I believe that these are from the 1930's but I am not positive. Each piece shows wear in the overglaze paint. I have tried to show the wear as best I can in the picture. The bowl has 2 areas ,on the top of the yellow rim, that look cracked but I'm not sure if the crack is all the way through or if they are just in the paint and glaze. Because of their age and condition, I must sell these AS IS. Email if you have any questions. Please watch my other auctions.
