I researched these cute salt and pepper shakers to list them on ebay -- might as well share my info here! (here's the ebay listing link)
- This is the CUTEST pair of shakers -- made by CERAMIC ARTS STUDIO --they made items with such great detail, colors, and creativity! Read about the CAS company here.
- They are based on the characters from the poem " The Duel ", written by Eugene Field in the 1800s
THE GINGHAM dog and the calico cat / Side by side on the table sat; / 'T was half-past twelve, and (what do you think!) / Nor one nor t' other had slept a wink! / The old Dutch clock and the Chinese plate / Appeared to know as sure as fate / There was going to be a terrible spat. (read the rest here)
Here's a children's book with darling illustrations (See the book here.)
