Vintage China CUPIE DOLL SHAKERS Kewpie Salt and Pepper

Vintage China CUPIE DOLL SHAKERS Kewpie Salt and Pepper - eBay (item 310083366558 end time Sep-17-08 20:36:51 PDT)

These vintage china salt and pepper shakers are cupie or kewpie dolls. The bottoms are stamped, "Japan" and have little cork stoppers.

They're identical, so good luck with choosing whether you've grabbed salt or pepper each time! The side view shows their little wings and they have their feet up as if all is right in their little cupie world.
