These little Individual Shakers, with their Silver Tops, are just precious. They look gorgeous sitting on the table, and even prettier when resting on the Individual Shaker Tray. The Individual Shakers, with the Silver Tops, have a height ranging from approximately 2½” – 2⅞”. Some of the old Fostoria Glass Catalogs list the height at 2⅞”; however, my own personal Shakers have a measurement of just 2½”.
The Individual Shakers are petite in size, as their purpose was to serve salt to individuals – not the entire table. Hence, these smaller Shakers were usually placed at each place setting on the table. Diminitive in size, they still manage to make a grand impression on the dinner table. Fostoria also made larger Shakers, such as the Shaker, F.G.T. – which would be the perfect choice if you needed a bigger Salt and Pepper Shaker for the entire table.
The Individual Shaker Tray was an item used in the 3-Piece Individual Shaker Set. The Shaker Tray fits the square Individual Shakers with Fostoria Glass Tops and the Individual Shakers with Silver Tops (pictured to the left).
