This 3-piece shaker set includes two flower bud shakers and a caddy with center handle. On top of each flower is a butterfly. The caddy is marked "Made in Occupied Japan", and the flowers are marked "Japan" (because that's all that would fit). These are hand painted with meticulous detail and finished with a matte glaze.
This set has been repaired - the yellow butterfly has been glued back on and the handle has been glued in two places. This repair is not invisible, but very well done. Also a leaf on that same bud was chipped and re-painted; the paint match is excellent. This damage is reflected in the price. Size: caddy, 4 1/8" L. x 2 1/8" W. x 3 1/8 inches high; buds, 2 1/4" diameter x 2 1/4 inches high. Circa 1950. (#6029)
