Occupied Japan salt and pepper shaker pair of ducks.

Decorative objects for the home based in the natural world became popular early in the 20th century and this fascination continued through mid-century.  In the wake of the second world war, U.S. troops occupied Japan from September 1945 through April 1952.  The Japanese ceramic industry was revitalized with aid from the United States during this time when manufacturers began producing decorative items for sale to the occupying American soldiers.  As a result, a thriving export business was born and these specially-marked decorative Japanese ceramics found their way into the homes of many Americans through the early 1950s.
