Antique Salt and Pepper Shakers - Wave Crest Opal WareTransferware CF Monroe Co circa 1898 - 1904 Decorated Opalware Tulip Shakers

Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a special find! Super adorable Victorian or Edwardian period antique salt and pepper shakers from C.F. Monroe Company circa 1898 - a company that decorated glassware. In this case this is called Wave Crest and it was decorated opalware (a kind of early milk glass) and this is their tulip shakers with transferware floral decorations. Much of their glass was made for them by Mt Washington Pairpoint, a very famous and collectible glass company of the period who were their neighbors.

Sadly a deal of the transfer has worn off over the years, creating a vintage shabby chic look, but they are in pretty good condition overall on the outside. I'm not sure they are a pair as each has a different floral pattern on it, and they have a different pastel color base. They both have lids, and very old lids, but perhaps not the original lids. Their lids are pretty beat up - I would guess that these shakers were well-used and well loved, but considering their age they are in remarkable condition despite that.

CONDITION: Under the lids there is some chipping around the opening. This could be where the pontil rod was snapped off, as happened with antique glass, or it is damage, or it's both. It is completely hidden by the lids.

SIZE: They are about 2 1/2 inches tall, and about 2 inches at the widest point.
