From my personal collection, I have had these in my china cabinet for about 30 years. This is the only set I have ever found like this in over 40 years of collecting. They have never been used. I have decided to downsize a bit and am letting go of many of my favorite things. I would like someone else to enjoy them for years to come and I am also afraid that all of my favorite items might end up on the quarter table at a garage sale. lol..This is another unique set of shakers. Shaped like spoons, this pair is marked Japan on the bottom and have cork stoppers in the ends. They are white and trimmed out with gold and dark pink. They are 4" long. No damage of any kind. I try to describe items as accurately as possible.
