FOR SALE ☞ Vintage Banff Souvenirs First Nations Salt and Pepper Shaker Set & Canoe
DESCRIPTION ☞ This small collection includes two hand painted ceramic Indigenous Peoples of Canada salt and pepper shakers as well as a hand made and painted canoe made of cardboard and preserved in a Mâché style.
The characters on the salt and pepper shaker feature a man and a woman with the man having a ceremonial head dress. Both salt and pepper shakers come with their original cork stoppers. The hand painted canoe is yellow with Banff painted on the side.
All of these items are made in Japan and have Banff hand painted on the side. We would estimate the age on these items to be the late 1920's to mid 1930's.
DIMENSIONS ☞ S&P Shakers are approximately 1" width at the base x 2.5" tall. Canoe is approximately 6" in length and 1.5" tall.
CONDITION ☞ All of these items are in very good shape for their age and prior use. The male shaker has a little paint flaked off where Banff is painted. However, the character as a whole has no other paint missing, chips, cracks or repairs. The female is in excellent shape with no missing paint, chips, cracks or repairs. The cork on both items is still whole and firm and has not broken down or deteriorated.
The canoe is also in excellent shape with very little signs of use or wear. The color is still bright and has not flaked off. The only blemish to the canoe is the bottom side where Japan is written where there is a small rub on the cardboard. Please see photos. Color may differ slightly in real life from how it appears on your screen due to varying monitor settings. Have a question about this item or want to see more photos?
