Besides being adorable, vintage shakers are a depiction of history. The styles and shaped are a direct reflection of the era they were manufactured.
For instance, "made in occupied Japan" mark a time after WW2 that American soldiers "occupied Japan". Law decreed that all items exported during that time be marked as occupied.
This type of shaker reflects a time most would rather forget. The problem with that is if we erase history we are bound to repeat it. These shakers are a reflection of the hate and stereotypes in America against the people's enslaved by them.
