Rare Vintage Japanese Marutomoware Pottery - Salt Pepper Shaker Mustard Bowl :
You are offerding on a Nice Vintage Occupied Japan Earthenware English Cottage Ware Salt, Pepper, Sugar Bowl & Mustard Pot/Jar Set .
Very nice condition with no cracks, chips or damage. Just a little faint crazing. Tiny chip on salt at bottom in front - see pictureGreat set withmustard pot (no spoon/ladle) and salt & pepper shaker set in English country cottage form.
The set is a house (mustard pot) withremovablelid. On the side is a small outhouse? with bushes (pepper) and windmill (salt).The whole thing measures 5.75 inches long by 3 inches wide by 4.25 inches tall - the salt measures 1.75 inches tall, 1.5 inches wide, 1 inch deep - pepper measures1.5 inches tall 1.25 inches deep .75 inches wideThis set is in white ceramic with gold trim - much like a winter wonderland in the country.
Both the salt and pepper are marked Japan in black.The base containing mustard pot is marked Marotomoware, circle with a T inside and Made in Japan in black lettering.I can only guess that this piece was made somewhere in between 1920 and 1945 - since the Japanese had to list their items Made in Japan until 1945I know that Marotomoware is generally thought to be made in the 1920's - 1930's but it could have been made as late as 1945 - there is not much information on this brand...I have never seen another piece like this one and it is truly beautiful........
