This attractive sugar shaker dates from about 1940-1942. It is lovely white milkglass with very deco looking fired-on trim in a beautiful medium blue. Originally it was part of a Vitrock range set made by Anchor Hocking. Identical shakers are shown in our Anchor Hocking books by Gene Florence.
This shaker is approximately 4 inches across, 4 inches tall and 2-1/4 inches wide. The word SUGAR is about one-half inch tall.
Condition is terrific - there are no cracks, chips or repairs - even the jar's threaded top is perfect with no damage. The glass is bright and clean with no stains. The blue decoration is wonderful in rich, strong blue color WITH NO CHIPS -- clearly it has never been in a dishwasher.
The metal lid is tin, in great condition for its age, and displays wonderfully. Its grayish-blue finish appears to be original. The color is close, but does not match the blue on the jar. Inside the lid is shiny bright and rust free. There
According to Florence, Vitrock range sets (a grease jar and salt, pepper, sugar and flour shakers) were advertised side-by-side with Fire King pieces in Hocking's early 1940s catalogs.
