Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice and very scarce shaker.
Condition: The shaker is in very good condition with no cracks, repairs or hairlines that we could find. The metal cap is also in good shape with a few minor bumps, scratches, and has lost most of its original silvery color. 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. There is also a small nick at the rim to the inside opaque lining. 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 condition.
In Closing: This is a great shaker, which is beautiful and in great condition after being around for over 100 years. A great addition to any glass shaker collection.
