This vintage Jadite Shaker with its original Black Top was made by Jeannette Glass. The lower portion has five concentric rings separated by a concave band about the width of your little finger. The top portion of the shaker has a molded indentation for a label that once identified its contents. Jeannette's lovely Jadite glows beautifully under black light, as seen in the last photo. These shakers were made to contain anything from spices, flour, and sugar, to bath salts! The original top is of pewter painted black.
This shaker is 4-1/2 inches tall and 1-3/4 inches in diameter at the base with a gradual slope to about 2-inches at the shoulder.
Made by Jeannette circa the 1930s and 1940s, it is not marked.
The original top is dented and worn, showing the metal beneath the black paint in some places on the top and some corrosion on the underside. There are three vertical scratches deep enough to catch a fingernail, but the worst of these that shows in the photos is actually in the seam line. These lines do not go through to the inside. Other than the expected flaws characteristic of glass of this time period, such as bubbles, mold seam roughness, or other irregularities, there is no damage.
