A muffineer is essentially a salt shaker; it's a small container with a perforated top which is used to shake out powders like sugar, salt, and talc in a controlled way. The word “muffineer” started to be used in the early 1800s to describe a shaker used to hold powdered sugar or sugar & cinnamon which could be spread on toast, muffins, scones, and other breakfast goods.

This lovely shaker, circa 1900, is a young girl figural dressed in Victorian attire of the period. Her long tan winter coat with dark brown muff shows a hint of her pink dress at the bottom. Her pastel green bonnet, lined with pink and tied with a yellow bow, frames her cute face with rosy cheeks, blue eyes and delicate red lips. The piece may also have been used as a talc shaker by the lady of the house. The shaker measures 5 1/2" in height. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. A darling piece which will complement many types of collections.
