Handpainted Novelty OCUK Postman Post Box Salt Pepper Pots
These Handpainted Novelty OCUK Postman Post Box Salt Pepper Pots are wonderfully kitsch. They celebrate the iconic British red post box and postman, from the time when postmen really wore an, almost, military style uniform and cap.
OCUK, Oriental Ceramics Limited, were a ceramics importing company based in Devon, UK. The company dissolved in 2014. This salt and pepper pot set was probably made in China, as a tourist souvenir for visitors to the UK or for collectors of kitsch salt and pepper pots! The postbox does have London embossed in the black part of the postbox.
Both the Postman and Post box are finished with a lovely gloss glaze. They are in good condition, with no cracks or chips. There are tiny defects in the glaze, which are visible on the surface of the post box but only on close inspection.
