Platypus (?) Salt and Pepper Shakers
Click thumbnails for expanded view.
Your guess is as good as mine about whether this pair are actually supposed to be platypuses! In any case, they would seem to be a fish of some sort, if only in the maker's imagination. The original corks are in place, and on the bottoms are penciled numbers that probably indicate they originally cost 70 cents plus 2 cents tax. That goes back quite a ways, doesn't it? You can add this pair to your collection and have some fun with them as a conversation piece.
