Vintage Japanese Female Bust African Salt and Pepper Shakers -- 1950s

Vintage Salt and pepper shakers set of a female African figure. Stamped Japan on the bottom and have the original cork plugs. The set is in very good used vintage condition with signs of light use and some vintage patina to the paint exp the black painted areas.

Figure Measurements (approx):

Height: 4 inches

Base: 2.25 by 1.25 inches

Tags/ID marks/labels: Japan printed on base

PLEASE ZOOM IN ON THE PHOTOS -- there are some areas where the paint is lighter or almost a wash -- they appear to have been hand painted. I believe there are no chips to the pieces only areas where hand painting is not perfect. The tops of the shakers are not perfectly smooth, most likely from use
