These salt and pepper men have been in my collection for years.

Hi Thelma

In Gail Henry's New Zealand Pottery in the Orzel Industries Ltd Product section under Figurines (p173) it says: "Political caricature cartoon figurines of Prime Ministers Muldoon and Rowling, c1970s, sold well and made in quantity."

It doesn't say that they were s&p shakers or give any indication of the size but that's the closest description I've seen so far.

Thanks Tony, you know I do remember reading that in the book but because there was no mention of salt and pepper sets, thought that they may have been something different. I have also just remembered that I have seen another set the same at the Southward Motor museum, in a huge collection of S & Ps they have there.
