CERAMIC CRUET SET Decorated With Strawberries Made in Japan Circa 1950s
Listing is for a vintage mid-century modern CERAMIC CRUET SET by Fred Roberts Company of San Francisco.
This Fred Roberts set is one of the Made in Japan imports brought to the United States post World War II. Following the end of World War II and the surrender of Japan, companies like Fred Roberts began importing from Japan dishware, china and other items to the United States. This import/export business helped helped Japan rapidly bounce back its economy to become the world's second largest economy behind the United States, by the 1960s.
The white ceramic set is decorated with strawberries and vines. It is in great vintage condition with very light crazing on a few of the pieces and no chips and no cracks. The Fred Roberts Company San Francisco Made in Japan labels are still attached to the slotted base, vinegar cruet and oil cruet, as well as a JAPAN label on the bottom of the mustard jar.
The matching set features the following:
• Vinegar Cruet with Lid, approximately 5 ½” tall
• Oil Cruet with Lid, approximately 5 ½” tall
• Salt and Pepper Shakers with Corks, approximately 3” tall
• Mustard Jar with Lid, approximately 3 ½” tall
• Slotted Base, 6” round by 1 ½” high
This cheerful set would make a great gift for anyone who enjoys mid-century modern china or décor. Please check listings for the matching condiment/marmalade set.
