Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice and rather rare shaker worthy of a spot in your collection. Condition: The shaker is in excellent condition with no cracks, repairs or hairlines that we could find. The metal cap is also in relatively good shape with a few bumps, scratches, and a few breaks along the bottom edge with signs of oxidation. The cap does not appear to be original to the piece but is a good fit. The shaker also shows general roughness around the top edge, which is original to the making (this normally happens when the shaker is broken off the blowing wand after the shaker has hardened), which can be seen in the photos. However, none of these are truly an issue and the piece is great and would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos to appreciate its beauty and for additional condition information.
