This Victorian glass sugar shaker or muffineer was made by Challinor & Taylor who was in business in the US from 1885 to 1893. The forget-me-not flower design in relief is on pink/white opalescent glass. The squatty design is segmented or sectioned like a pumpkin. The shaker has the original silver metal lid with star and slitted holes.
I used to collect sugar shakers many moons ago because I loved the glass. I know what they go for these days and online and in antique shops, the Challinor forget-me-nots are priced at $ 100 or more, and most are not in perfect condition. Im offering this to a young aspiring collector at a fraction of that price so a lucky person can afford to add to their collection.
Medium petite in size, the shaker is 2" tall x 2 1/2" wide. The entire shaker is in pristine clean condition with no imperfections or flaws. There are no scratches, cracks, or chips in the glass : there are a few chips on the rim under the lid. The lid has the original old patina and a few dents but there are no cracks in the metal.
