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. (Read more)

  1. Thanks so much for the info. I write quite a bit for AAG on shakers. I decided to do the article on Bohemian shakers specifically Harrach with the help of my friend Leah Goodwin in April 2014. I real...
  2. So I guess the final questions for me is, what would be the pattern name and the age?
  3. Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate it. I was lucky to be able to get it. Im a shaker collector like I previously mentioned and Im always looking for rare and unusual stuff in this category.
  4. I actually did an article on Bohemian art glass shakers for the WVMAG All About Glass magazine a year or so ago. I collect Victorian Art Glass shakers and condiment sets too. What I really like about...
  5. Also, I took the pics quickly with my phone so they do show the background a bit dark.
  6. Yes, its quite an unusual color combination. The background in the pic is just sheets of white paper. I find it best for photos of glass. The colors are a white and grayish blue spatter glass and the...
  7. Thanks so much, have you ever seen a sugar shaker?
  8. Wow, that is great! I see the basket in your posting and you are right! Thanks so much for the info, I really appreciate it!
  9. Thanks! It may need a tune up so to speak. We have a friend who is really into this kind of stuff and I need to speak with him. It is nice when you find these old pieces with the decorated horns though.
  10. Its been a while since Ive been on here but I have the exact same piece (a pair) I got a while back. They are very cool and yours is only the 3rd I seen! I think I have them pictured somewhere on my p...
  11. Akro Agate was produced in Clarksburg WV and was a huge maker of children's sets in the 30s and 40s. They were produced in many patterns as well as many colors. Akro Agate also produced many specialty...
  12. Thank you! Do you have an interest in Akro Agate?
  13. Here is an interesting website that has posted smalls including shakers in which many are mine. https://www.flickr.com/photos/hoacga_project/page1/
  14. Hi, Nobody knows for sure and who may have made some of them. We know Imperial made some, typically Octagon in a documented old marigold and amethyst. Its really an unknown category of carnival but w...
  15. Thanks!
  16. Yes, I did see those, thanks!
  17. Thanks Alfredo, what you are saying validates my decision was a good one to bid. Have you seen any other shakers before? Scott
  18. Wow, thanks everyone!! Im glad to get them, I have a lot of shakers but never ran across these before!
  19. Why, thank you :)
  20. Great stuff!!! Love it, my kind of stuff!
  21. Yes, its amazing the skill they had all those years ago.
  22. Thanks so much Amy, you too!
  23. Got it, thanks!
  24. One other comment, it amazes me to see that happen when other things like the fighting and rude attacks go unchecked
  25. WOW, amazing Is it somewhere where I can see it?
  26. What happened to your post on the mustard jar?
  27. Thanks Leah, its a good one!
  28. Thanks so much! With all the shakers I have this is the first in this pattern. They are very rare in salt shakers too!
  29. If you look somewhere in my posts I showed an Ice Green Grape and Cable bowl Ice Green G&C is pretty popular right now
  30. Sure! Bring it on!
  31. Pastel pieces in carnival glass are highly desirable
  32. You should join! Its fun usually an auction, seminars, buying, and some of us always go to the old factory site. There are fragments all over the site and you can usually find some marbles too!
  33. That is white carnival glass. Carnival glass was made in pastel colors too, white, Ice blue, and ice green. That is the only pastel old carnival glass shakers Ive ever seen!
  34. Thanks, Been really into it the last couple of years and go to the convention in Clarksburg, WV Must have about 1000 pieces of all kinds including Westite pieces, its fun
  35. Thanks, its an interesting category of glass and very popular. Many of the pieces are Art Deco in design, especially in the vases.
  36. Thanks!
  37. I think it may have been a terrarium, it has a lead lined bottom but use it as a cabinet for shakers as you can see. :)
  38. Thanks!
  39. Thanks, I will try to post more tonight
  40. Thanks, and you are welcome
  41. Thanks!
  42. Good for you, never let those kind of people win. Collect what you love and enjoy it. Ones that act the way they do probably don't enjoy anything anymore.
  43. That is what I understand
  44. And...... It the courage people develop hiding behind a computer. Its sort of like the guy that gives you the finger from his car as he is speeding away :)
  45. Hi Fran, Well the issue is in my mind and these things have been discussed in different glass clubs. The issue starts with trying to interest new collectors. Clubs and collectors are shrinking for ol...
  46. Thanks! I will, maybe this weekend
  47. Its hard to tell from the photo, it may be Fenton. I know what you mean and I really don't know him but I just cant tolerate these petty glass group bullies in any group and if I ran the show they wou...
  48. If you are talking about the vases, they are 2 white carnival glass Fenton Rustic vases.
  49. Thanks Fran, Let me see if I can get a scan of the article and email it to you.
  50. I would agree with that
  51. See more
