This design is a pair of Art Deco 3-7/8" salt and pepper shakers with decal decoration, shapes 633 and 634. These Wild West motifs are really fun. The color portions depict The Colt Peacemaker rifle and the River Boat Gamblers Favorite pistol. In the background, in brown, are a cowboy gunslinger, cliffs, and a wagon being ambushed by three men with drawn gun. The other piece has brown illustrations of a gambler (Diamond Jack?) and a riverboat. 22k gilt trim. Raised factory name and shape number. Probably made about 1957. (This shape does not appear in catalogs or advertisements.)
No nicks, hairlines, chips, or repairs. Some minor wear (particularly to the pepper).
NOTE: If you see a pink spot in an odd place in my photos, it's just a reflection caused by the camera.
