These Van Tellingen BENDEL Rare Gray & Black Rabbit snuggle-hug salt and pepper shakers are absolutely adorable. This rare gray and black rabbit set is in Excellent Condition with no chips or cracks. These Bendel Van Tellingen salt and pepper shakers were designed by Ruth Van Tellingen Bendel and produced by the REGAL CHINA COMPANY. The snuggle-hugs fit together in a hugging position and could be picked up together without a chance of dropping them. These 2/3 hole shakers are on the same side so that both salt and pepper could be dispensed at the same time using only one hand. The bottoms are so well balanced that it is almost impossible to knock them over. The shakers are marked copr 1958 R BENDEL on the back under their tails and PAT NO. 2560755 on the bottoms. My camera would not pick up the markings. These rabbit shakers have rosy cheeks and a rosy color inside their ears. The color didn't show up in our pictures. These Rare Bendel Rabbit Snuggle-Hug Shakers will make a wonderful addition to your Van Tellingen and Bendel Salt and Pepper Collection.
