The complete series of these Goebel musicians consists of properly paired similar 7 and 5 pour hole instruments – 1. base drums, 2. base saxophones, and 3. alto saxophones.
Each shaker doubles as a place card holder with a slot in the back. The musicians with the drums are impressed “P624”, the musicians with the base saxophones are impressed “P625”, and the musicians with the alto saxophones are impressed “P626″.
Each set is about 2.5” in height. Circa 1920s.
