I found these at an antique store near down town Columbus on Saturday. They were just tossed in a drawer with various jelewery and what not. The appear to be a salt cellar and pepper shaker in the shape of Okobo; shoes worn by apprentice Geisha. I got very excited when I saw them and gladdly shelled out the $8 the dealer was asking for. However I’ve been able to find very little detail about them as there are not markings on them what so ever. A gal over at immortal Geisha forums found a very similar pair but they were marked sterling 950. *shrugs* I’d really like to know the value of these little gals and about how old they are.
