This sale is for a wonderful antique, opalescent glass, sugar shaker. This old shaker is approximately 4-3/4" tall & the diameter of the base is 2-1/4". The top rim of this shaker has the expected rough finish that is on the old pieces & it looks like chipped glass but that is the way they left the glass rims back then. I do not know what the metal lid is made of but it has good weight & it fits the top of the jar nicely. There are no chips or cracks on this antique glass. There are 2 tiny dings on the side of the lid & I have showed these on an image. I mention this for accuracy as this definitely does not detract from the beauty or appearance of the glass or the lid!! The lovely raised white opalescent floral & fern design on this piece of glass is very desirable & when held in certain lighting it picks up lovely color tones! In different lighting the opalescence hints of some gold & blue tones. This hard to find antique opalescent glass shaker is in great condition! It is the perfect antique glass sugar shaker to use & display! It's sure to be noticed & admired by your family & guests! How beautiful to use for the holidays and those special family affairs!! When not in use, this colorful, decorative & interesting old shaker would be lovely to display on your mantel, hutch, or window sill!! Thanks so much for looking!!
