This rather scarce pattern produced by the Buckeye Glass company. Known as Buckeye 545, it came in both decorated and undecorated. The only decoration I've seen is a raised gold decoration that was done by a building up a base of enamel and then applying gold as the top coat. I believe this was done because simply applying the fragile gold paint would not survive against the smooth glass of the object. The two pieces shown are, in my opinion, harder to find than some of their other shapes.
I have found the water pitcher the easiest to locate.
I also believe that the Salt Shaker club (AGSSSC) mistakenly attributed a sugar shaker (SSNO 1121) another shape as being Buckeye 545.
Pictured above are the Sugar Shaker (Left) and the Mustard or possibly a Horseradish (Right). There are no salt and pepper shakers that I have seen, however it does not mean they don't exist.
