At an estate sale last month, I purchased this really cool pottery shaker and creamer set. The matching figural set looks like a lion to me. I could be wrong–with their styling, they could be a number of items.
What I need some help with is who and when the two pieces were made. They are not marked anywhere on the pieces.
I have seen several pieces that have the same color combination that are from Japan, but never anything with this shape (I’ve even seen some Chinese pieces also with the same color combination).
The colors look to me like they could be by the OLD CASTLE Company, and their shape look makes me think that they are by SEISEI POTTERY Company. As you can seem I am at a real loss on this set.
Any information is greatly appreciated on this. Do you know what they are and who could have possibly made this?
