Hazel Atlas Milk Glass Spice Shaker Set Blue Ethnic Decorations 7 Pieces
This is a set of seven coordinating spice shakers, all made by Hazel Atlas in the 1950s. They are white milk glass or platonite with green-brown painted metal lids. Each shaker has a different blue decal on the front representing the nationality of the spice inside. The celery salt shaker has a girl in a Dutch native dress holding tulips and the distinctive winged bonnet on her head. The onion salt, chili powder, and mustard shakers all look like Dutch outfits with a wooden clogs on their feet. The garlic salt has a man in a sombrero, and the paprika jar has a woman dancing in a full ruffled, tiered skirt like a Flamenco dancer. The curry powder has a ship with tall sails. Each shaker is 3 1/4" tall and 1 7/8" square. The curry powder still has the original Dove Curry Powder paper label on the back. The label says the ingredients in curry powder are coriander, turmeric, cinnamon, cumin, cardamon, foenugreek, cayenne, ginger, pimento, black pepper, cloves, nutmeg. It was packed by the Frank Tea & Spice Co., of Cincinnati, Ohio. The glass is in excellent condition, the lids all show some wear. Several of the shakers still contain the original spices.
