This very rare sugar shaker is one of the top cranberry opal patterns out there! A blue opal example recently sold at auction for 1200.00! Cranberry is usually far more desirable! I was lucky enough to spot this on Ebay as it was literally just listed with a Buy It Now of a fraction of what its worth so a very quick look at the description to make sure there was no damage and I hit the button.
I believe that Northwood may have produced this pattern. There is very little in the books on this pattern and some say Hobbs and others say Northwood. Either way, I was very fortunate to get this piece!
While I knew this was a very rare shaker, recent communications with a couple of opalescent collectors have revealed to me that this piece is extremely rare and seldom available for sale!
