Made by Carltonware in the 1970s, I have an idea they're from a range designed by Vivienne Brennan.
The monocled gentleman is a pepper pot, his hat is the salt pot. The maid salt pot has the butler's face on the reverse and the butler pepper pot has the maid's face on the reverse.
The three-colour illustrations are beautifully done and they work so well on the simple shapes of the white pottery.
