Readers ask about degrading Occupied Japan salt/pepper shakers

Readers ask about degrading Occupied Japan salt/pepper shakers | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I got to wondering about Japan’s place in the marketing of these products. The country was a major producer of salt and pepper shakers by the 1940s, and many of them were made in the stereotypical images of African Americans that was omnipresent in this country.

I know that Japan was not the only foreign country that made money off these items (I found some on the web that were said to be marked Germany). So I Googled, which turned up thousands of results of ”Made in Occupied Japan” Black Americana stuff that folks were selling – many caricatures and decidedly crude.
