A wonderfully detailed W.B. Mfg Co. Silver Plated Salt Shaker from the early 1900's. W.B. which stands for Weidlich Brothers Manufacturing Company operated in Bridgeport, Connecticut from 1901 until the 1950's. W.B. Mfg Co (Weidlich Bros) of Connecticut has been well documented in the Silversmith journals of well known artisans of the Art Nouveau period. The company made some of the finest heavy (quadruple) silver plated and electro-plated items in the early 1900's. The salt shaker is 5 inches tall and 2 inches in diameter at the center. The bottom is marked "W. B. Mfg. Co., 3852, Pat. Appl'd For". This salt shaker is in need of a good polishing which I will leave up to the new owner.
