BAKELITE
Deco condiment set in transparent gold and green bakelite with
silver overlay. The mustard pot with it’s lid is 2" tall and 1-5/8" wide,
the spoon is 3-3/4", and the salt and peppers are each 1-1/2" by 1-1/3". The
round tray that holds them all is 4-1/4" wide and it has some scratching,
but the other pieces are all in excellent condition. I think this was a
European
souvenir because it says "Aschaffenburg" on the tray, and that is
a city in northwest Bavaria, Germany.

whimsy! Circa 1940.
