The figurines are useful kitchen items such as salt and pepper shakers, napkin holders, toothpick holders, spoon rests, tea sets, flower pots and cookie jars. They were made from 1956 until the 1960s.The little lady pictured here wears an apron that reads "A Mother's Work is Never Done" and carries a scouring pad holder.
