Van Tellingen Huggies Salt & Pepper Shakers: Black/African American Boy with Dog
Van Tellingen Huggies salt & pepper shakers made by Regal China. Little black boy with his dog, marked "Patent Pending" on each piece. Circa 1940's. Artfully designed to interlock so that the two pieces could be lifted together with one hand. Measures 3.5"h. Apparently, these type of shakers had many inherent factory flaws in their early days of development, as is noticeable in the un-cut hole in the top of one piece. The small chip to back of the dog's ear is the only true damage I could find; factory flaw separation of the pottery near arm of boy as shown. Sold as is. Inglenook Antiques...Established 1989..
