Great pair of 1930’s Esslinger’s Little Man Ale salt and pepper shakers with decal labeling. The brown glass set is in wonderful condition, each displaying two paper labels, one wrapped across the neck of the bottle and reads: “ESSLINGER’S ALE”. The center of the shaker features a large oval decal depicting a ‘Little Man’ cocktail server dressed in red and carrying a tray of beverages. Around him it reads: “THE ALE OF QUALITY ESSLINGER’S LITTLE MAN ALE BREWED AND BOTTLED BY ESSLINGER’S INC., PHILADELPHIA, PENNA.”
