"The Fox and the Grapes" salt and pepper shaker set, 1950

 Item — Box: CFC Salt and Pepper Shakers Box 2
Identifier: CFC2019.0379.1

I never thought I would see salt and pepper shakers of this fable! Painted grapes cling to the two forks of a sturdy vine, while the fox seems to hug himself and certainly licks his chops. It is of course unfortunate that the fox here is actually higher than the grapes he seeks! The cork under each shaker is missing. I think I can make out a pencilled price on the bottom of each piece: $1.25 for the pair! One person's trash is another person's treasure!

Dates: 1950
