The Ketchup was one of the first 3 pixies that Holt-Howard produced. He has 11 red/orange stripes that match his head color.  The Ketchup was individually boxed and sold, but he was also featured in B. Altman & Company's 1958 Christmas Catalog and sold as a 3-piece set with the Jam 'n Jelly and Mustard for $4.95. The Ketchup spoon was designed as a spreader, rather than a scoop spoon like the Jam 'n Jelly.  Although the Ketchup pixie was advertised as red, the coloration definitely lends itself to a tomato red, more orange in appearance.  The Ketchup is really hard to find in the excellent condition as this one - most likely because ketchup was the most used and got broken and stained bad... so people tossed him. There are no chips on this jar. The writing on the jar is bold and the colors are bright. Any white spots or fading you see is due to the camera flash.
