This set is so cute! The donkey and two barrels are ceramic, and the little gold painted wagon is metal. The sticker on the bottom says made in Japan, but the gold sticker on the pepper barrel is worn, and although I'm sure this was a travel trinket bought at some souvenir shop at one time, I'm not sure where it was marked from.
No chips or anything, and the glaze is in great shape, but the detail paint on the donkey's face and ears is worn and the words salt and pepper are worn.
Feel free to send me any other questions you might have, and be sure to read my shop policies for any additional information.
