Tweedle Dee pepper shaker designed by William K. Harper and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, circa 1998. From Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass", Tweedledee and Tweedledum are two little fat brothers dressed as schoolboys who are fond of dancing and poetry. They are very affectionate with one another but fight over an extremely trivial matter. They are petty and cowardly. Alice encounters the brothers and asks for assistance. Instead, she is regaled with the poem of the Walrus and the Carpenter and provided many more distractions rather than her desired help. The word "Contrariwise" is incised on his belly, a word he is fond of saying.
