Watermelon Salt and Pepper - 1940s. Beautiful detail and color. So cheerful and perfect minature representatives of watermelons. They are in great vintage condition with a hairline ( can be seen in last photo) around one of them and slight wear consistent with their age. These pieces are becoming rarer and rarer. Made after the end of World War II until the occupation of Japan 1945 - 1952

marked *"Made in Occupied Japan" in a red stamp on the bottom

measure 1.5" x 2.5"

*Occupied Japan items are "period" collectibles. After the war, during the time the United States occupied Japan, everything exported from that country had to be marked either "Made in Occupied Japan" or simply "Occupied Japan." The American Occupation continued from the end of World War II in 1945 until the Peace Treaty was signed on April 28, 1952. Items marked "Occupied" did not begin to arrive in the United States until 1947. The mark was discontinued after the signing of the Peace Treaty.
