Last but not least, the instant coffee jar. As will most coffee jars of the period, this has a cork lining on the lid to keep it air tight (although the pixies use a rubber ring which tends to dry out and crumble away, the cork is better). This one is cool because it has its original, incredibly flimsy spoon!

Next up is Cheese Dish. Not sure what kind of cheese was supposed to go in these, my assumption is some sort of grated Parmesan, but that is just a guess.
I like this one especially because we get to see Mrs. Claus too.

As December winds down to a close, I thought I'd post a few of my Santa ceramics from the 1950s. I'll do another series next year. For this year's installment, I'll do the Lipper and Mann Santa condiment jars, starting off with the Scotch decanter and cups.

Merry Christmas to everyone! I promise to start posting more in the new year to this blog, especially since our kitchen remodel was finally completed Wednesday! Just in time for making a huge mess for Christmas dinner.
