Collar is surrounded with engraved design. Sugar shaker is molded milk glass with sky blue finish and hand painted stylized flowers in enamel paints. Wear spots to the top, see photos. Heacock and Lechner both advised that the quality of the top should not dictate the value of the glass shaker itself. Heacock reports the sugar shaker was a "passing fancy and often impractical for table usage, so most were put away on a shelf for safe keeping." He surmises that is why so few sugar shakers are found today with the usual usage and age wear.
American antique glass Victorian sugar shakers flourished during the period 1885-1905. William Heacock renown author and American glass expert, states that they were also called "sugar sifters" or "sugar dusters”. The English refer to them as muffineers.
