How do you tell the difference between the original Mr bali Hai S&P shakers to the tiki farm repros as i bought a pair at a flea market over the weekend and are not sure if they are originals or repros?

The originals are fairly old & prone to "crazing"
I have seen many old sets with imperfections & little nips in the finish also
check the bottoms also & obvious smoothing of features from over using the same casting mold
The Tiki Farm set should look new & have an even finish with sharper detail.

It is very hard to judge by the photo, but I see imperfections in the
hand painted earrings & nose bone that lead me to think those are originals.
