A fine porcelain sugar shaker or muffineer that features a hand painted purple violets decoration. Just above the dainty violets is a thick band of gold that is outlined in black. The very top is covered with heavy gold and the base has a thin gold band. The original cork is inside the shaker.
This gorgeous, hard to find piece is hallmarked with the Pickard Studios mark #8 on the base. This assists us in dating to c. 1918-1919.
Measures 4 3/4 inches tall we do find a small bit of wear but there is no damage to the porcelain. We love the delicate hand painting and bold gold top. This is an upscale item that would have been found at a well to do family's breakfast table.
