These large (6'') sets consist of coffee pots as the salt and pepper shakers sitting on stove tops. The stove top doubles as a tray for the shakers and a lid for the sugar / instant coffee jar / container.
Circa 1960. We're sure other colors are out there to be discovered. Notice the original plastic spoons that hang on the back of the set. They are marked with a sticker "Fine Quality Lego Japan" and stamped "Lego Copyright 1960".
