Vintage Porcelain Curmudgeon

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


A vintage porcelain shaker made in Japan, probably for the European market. It's hand-painted, in good previously used vintage condition. The workmanship is a little imprecise, but it makes for a collectible with tons of character. The cork is not original to the shaker. He's a whopping 2" tall and about 2-1/4" across, including his arm/hand handle.

The grumpy, one-eyed countenance reminds me of highly collectible wood carvings of curmudgeons of Germany and Italy. There were also English pottery mugs fashioned after curmudgeonly fellows.

In any case, it brings whimsy to the day.

Shipping Note:
...USPS Small Flat Rate unless requested otherwise.
...Domestic USA purchases insured (included in shipping charge)
...If my cost to ship is less than shipping charge, I will refund any remaining amount over $1.

Thank you!
