Product Description
These vintage red salt and pepper shakers are part of a highly collectible dishes pattern called "Red Rooster," which was part of the Poppytrail line produced in 1956 by Metlox of California. Utensils and accents in this pattern were glazed in this bright tomato red with dark shading in the glaze on the handles and around the base.

I believe these salt and pepper shakers are supposed to represent barn silos. The salt has two holes at the top, the pepper has 3, and both have a "rivet" detail down the side. This is a very collectible vintage California pottery pattern.


3 3/4 in. tall x 2 in. diameter base x 1 in. handle

9.5 cm. tall x 5 cm. diameter base x 2.5 cm. handle

Condition notes: They have no crazing in the glaze, no chips or cracks, and they still have their original rubber plugs that have an almost illegible stamp of "Metlox" on them (the plugs are somewhat brittle with age, but what can you expect from something made in 1956?). I suspect they sat on a shelf and were never used. The one with 2 holes in the top (salt) has a black speck in the glaze that happened at the factory (it's near the "rivet" detail on the side).

Shipped first class with delivery confirmation, or first class international.

I have many other vintage ceramics in my studio, so please have a look around. Thanks for visiting!
