Title   MT. WASHINGTON / BOSTON & SANDWICH GLASS CONDIMENT SHAKERS.

Publisher    C.1890s.

Seller ID   50-0076

Pair. Mold blown white opalware decorated with handpainted butterflies amid foliage. C.1890s. 3 3/4 h. (with top removed) & 1 5/8 d. Pewter, one-piece lids. These appear to be identical to the handpainted Matched Pillars shakers shown in Lehner, Bk. 2, p. 239, except those are only 3 1/8 h. The lids are identical to those shown in Lechner as well as those shown in Padgett (p. 20) & Avila (p. 6) where very similarly shaped shakers with handpainted decoration are attributed to Mt. Washington. However, see Lechner, Bk. 3, p. 36, where an identically shaped handpainted cruet set (named Tapered Shoulder Variation) with 3 5/8 shakers is shown for a discussion of the evidence that might point to Boston & Sandwich as the maker of the shakers. Fine (No defects).

Price = 75.00 USD
