The ceramic "chip and dip" wedding gift that Pete Campbell took back to the department store and exchanged for a rifle during the first season of "Mad Men" appears to be a reproduction in the style of pieces created by Brad Keeler Artwares in the 1950s, according to Keeler's granddaughter, Cati Porter. One of the vintage items would be affordable today.
