This appears to be a depression glass diamond pattern salt shaker. There are eight of them altogetherr - all identical - except for the number at the bottom (See below)
The interesting thing about this particular shaker is that on the bottom it reads as follows:
Since I can not find anything unique about this shaker - I am not sure why anyone would apply for a patent - unless it is the pyramid shape.
For example the top seems to be made of a cheap metal - possible aluminum. Maybe it is the first use of an aluminum top.
It is for this reason I think the shaker is either an antique or a vintage shaker.
If anyone has any information about this little cutie - I would appreciate learning more about it.
I have looked at over 1,200 shakers - and other than it is clear - and is potentially a depression era Diamond pattern - I can find nothing.
Thanks for looking
