What the heck is up with this first one? What is that whichamacall it? I went thru a salt and pepper shaker phase and this is the only one I have had with this tool attached. Was it to keep the salt from sticking?
the last picture are the same size and shape, just different colors.

    I have never seen one of those,of coarse I don't usually pay much attention to S&P shakers,but I love the mechanical part of this!I wonder if you could churn butter in it?Like a single serving for toast?lol

    Interesting concept... Butter churner at the dinner table... :)

    From the thumbnail it looked like a paddle, I thought maybe a mustard jar with a paddle for spreading. Could it be for smoothing jelly before spreading onto toast? It makes one wonder if it made for condiments on some sort. But... maybe its for picking up sugar cubes?
  4. gargoylecollector gargoylecollector, 12 months ago
    Nope,I really think it's to break up the salt,and it looks like it's been in it for a while!

    I thot that as well gargo but with the square shape I couldn't resist mentioning sugar cubes.

    They are Sandwich glass Christmas Barrels and the name comes from the patient date that is stamped on the tops. Made in the second half of the 1800s. On the salts they have that little agitator to break up the salt. Im a Victorian shaker collector myself with a collection in excess of 1500 shakers. Ive also written many articles on the subject for publications in the US, Canada< and the UK. Its a fun hobby, at least I think so :)

    I would have never guessed these to be salt shakes with holes that large.
    So, would there have been matching pepper shakers in this age period or would you have just used a pepper mill?
  9. antiques-in-nj antiques-in-nj, 12 months ago
    Yes, in most cases shakers do have both a salt and a pepper. The pepper in this case would not have the agitator.
