1975 Green Glass 7 UP THE UNCOLA Salt & Pepper Shakers

 The Uncola  released this fine product onto the public in 1975 cause everybody needs a set of salt and pepper  shakers. These promo babies ran out for the  end of "See the Light"  and the start of "It's 7 Up, it's Uncola" ad campaigns.Made of green glass(yeah I know you can see) and stand just under 4 inches tall.The plastic lids have not yellowed  however the shakers where made in Taiwan  and  Westinghouse,  7 Up's owners,at the time  were not happy with the product as all the glass had imperfections.As a result there is really  no mint sets of the shakers .Westinghouse bought 7 Up in 1969 and sold it in 1978 to Philip Morris.

 So if your a 7up drinker and or collector this rare set is a nifty must have. Bottom line is, this  kool 70's advertisement for an iconic brand . Hell they also will look great in  your kitchen!
