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)

  3. One other comment, it amazes me to see that happen when other things like the fighting and rude attacks go unchecked
  4. WOW, amazing Is it somewhere where I can see it?
  5. What happened to your post on the mustard jar?
  6. Thanks Leah, its a good one!
  7. Thanks so much! With all the shakers I have this is the first in this pattern. They are very rare in salt shakers too!
  8. 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
  9. Sure! Bring it on!
  10. Pastel pieces in carnival glass are highly desirable
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. 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
  14. Thanks, its an interesting category of glass and very popular. Many of the pieces are Art Deco in design, especially in the vases.
  15. Thanks!
  16. 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. :)
  17. Thanks!
  18. Thanks, I will try to post more tonight
  19. Thanks, and you are welcome
  20. Thanks!
  21. 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.
  22. That is what I understand
  23. 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 :)
  24. 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...
  25. Thanks! I will, maybe this weekend
  26. 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...
  27. If you are talking about the vases, they are 2 white carnival glass Fenton Rustic vases.
  28. Thanks Fran, Let me see if I can get a scan of the article and email it to you.
  29. I would agree with that
  30. Its possible, they may be related too
  31. I never noticed that, thanks!
  32. Thanks, I love them too but I cant collect too many, they are big! :)
  33. Thanks so much :)
  34. In pink slag!
  35. Thanks! Wow, that cabinet is popular!
  36. Thanks! I buy some of these old cabinets to display them in. Most are glass cases from old general stores.
  37. All your glass is the best Leah!!
  38. Don't say that, just think about what you are really interested in and all you know. When it comes to carnival glass shakers Ive done a lot of thinking and studying on these pieces. I have about 20 ...
  39. But here is the thing. Many of these pieces we don't know where they came from and if they are actually old and iridized later in life. Some pieces are out there that are Victorian era pieces and have...
  40. Yes, that is another line, NUCUT, Cambridge made NearCut Its a fascinating subject, carnival shakers and its fun when you find one!
  41. Here is my page on Doty's site. The text is carved up a bit, not my doing but you can see a few other unusual examples. http://ddoty.com/shakers.html
  42. Well, I think the simulated cut glass or near cut patterns were popular because they showed off the iridescence so well. However so many pieces in patterns like this did not turn out so well either. I...
  43. http://ddoty.com/octagon.html Sorry, forgot to add this
  44. Octagon was quite a popular pattern during the vintage era of carnival glass due to the size of their line, and yes it was also reproduced in later years. I have quite of bit of research on OLD car...
  45. Thanks!!
  46. Thanks, As you can see I collect shakers. But I started out collecting carnival glass many years ago. So, when I discovered these very rare carnival glass shakers, I started looking for them. If Im l...
  47. Thanks so much Leah!
  48. Thanks!
  49. I actually ask Leah if it was Bohemian before I bought it. She said yes and was a nice piece so I got it. Its a big piece of glass for sure and the handles are unusual on it for sure.
  50. Thanks! I would but they have strict guidelines against publishing any content without permission. I guess everyone has to go out and get it :)
