Vintage From Paul is delighted to offer these Stangl Pottery Mediterranean Salt & Pepper Shakers.


Vintage Stangl hand-painted "Mediterranean" pattern salt and pepper shaker set, each with a rubber plug that is marked "STANGL". Nearly identical to Stangl's Caughley-Blue pattern, except Mediterranean also has some green spatter mixed with the blue spatter.

Each Stangl Mediterranean shaker stands 4 inches in height and measures 2 inches  in diameter.  The pair weighs in at 8 oz, salt has 3 holes and pepper has 5 holes. Mint condition: no chips, no cracks, no repairs. The rubber plugs are still quite pliable and fit perfetcly.

In 1942 Stangl made a radical move to be different, and tested a hand-carved, hand-painted pottery style based upon the pottery of the Pennsylvania Dutch. This pottery style involved taking a red body and covering it with a white englobe (a thin layer of a liquid white clay) that would then be allowed to partially dry. The thin white englobe would then be carved to allow the red body to show through. The piece would be fired to harden the clay, then painted, glazed, and refired. It was a time consuming, laborious process but also a very distinctive process. This hand-carved, hand-painted style of pottery would dominate Stangl's dinnerware lines up until the mid 1960's.

Each of the Stangl Pottery Mediterranean Salt & Pepper Shakers is in Mint condition, with no defects/flaws noted. The original Stangl rubber stoppers are in place.
