Some elves make shoes. Others build toys. But some have higher career aspirations. Take these charming characters, for instance. These stoneware salt and pepper shakers aren't just elves; they're elf chefs! One is holding a fresh dinner plate aloft, while the other pours the coffee. Handpainted in vibrant red and white, with accents of gold, these kitschy pixies come from the great age of Japanese trinkets, knick-knacks and toys; we're dating them to the 1950s, but they could be early 1960s as well.

The cork stoppers are intact - as far as we can tell, these shakers have never been used. Both are marked "Japan" on the underside.

Rounded to the nearest measurement.

3.25" H
1.75" W (widest point)
