American glass McKee Bros. Sugar Shaker Variant #6 shaker. They were also called sugar sifters, sugar dusters, or muffineers. Muffineers (English term) were part of the Victorian tableware along with so many other serving utensils. With the change in lifestyles after World War I extending to later years, muffineers were referred to as sugar shakers and were no longer as elegant or elaborate. Lacking hand painted decorations and colored glass, most were pressed clear glass. This shaker is opalware glass, mold blown , has double row of bulging ribs on the top and bottom with smooth center. Hand painted flowers on the front side, original top, circa 1903. Maker is McKee and Bros., of Jeanette, Pennsylvania. Shaker is 5"tall, 2 1/8" diameter at the base. No damage, chips, cracks or repairs. See photos. One of many we have ON SALE
