Clown and lady salt and pepper shakers


Why a clown and a woman?  Is it really a true set?  The colors match - yes.  They are the same size with similar proportions - yes.  They have identical facial details - yes.  They are both stamped in red "Japan".  They have 7 and 5 pour holes.

I say yes they are a true set.  But an odd pairing to say the least.


Here is more evidence that they are a correct pair - it is not the only strange pairing of a clown and woman out there.  Look at this Japan imported lusterware set on the right.  Same story and argument as above.  I believe this is also a true set.
