What a beautiful pair of bobwhite quail.....these are salt and pepper shakers, they have great color, they are marked W. Germany, with a symbol of a large V with a something in it. They have the number P123 with maybe an A and B following them stamped into them. They have plastic stoppers. The mail bird (I'm guessing mail, because of the crest on his head) has a hairline crack around the base towards its leg.Great set, if you would like more pictures, please let me know...thanks!!
