The most interesting aspect about collecting Victorian Art glass shakers and condiments is that you can collect just about all types of victorian art glass and display it in a small area.
These types of items include salt, pepper, sugar shakers as well as mustard jars, small cruets, and toothpick holders. If you are lucky enough you may run across a silverplate holder of the period that will hold the pieces! The holders can be very ornate and really enhance the shakers in which they hold. As I mentioned above, these items come in all types of art glass. This includes cased glass, decorated opalware as well as many other forms of enameled glass.Amberina, Burmese, Peachblow, Findlay Onyx, Opalescent, Chocolate glass and so many others.

Every shaker and mustard had a top of some sort. These tops were made on many types of materials. Brass, nickel, pewter, and silver. The tops came plain, and embossed with designs and flowers. These specialty tops were reserved for certain shakers made by Mt Washington and Wavecrest to name a couple. Mt Washington made some shakers in the form of Tomatoes, Eggs, Chicken in eggs, and Figs. These shakers had specialty tops that were made just for the shaker they are on. They were part of the form of the object they represented.

Shaker collecting is a very big collectible for many people. They can become very expensive for the more desirable forms of art glass. They are very difficult to come across in antique shops anymore. The major marketplace for these items like so many other antiques and collectibles is Ebay. It can get very competitive on there for better items. Like so many other collectibles, there is a club that unites so many collectors from around the country. There is also a club website that you can visit on the internet. If you are looking for a great collecting subject, look into the world of Victorian Art Glass shakers and condiment sets.
