Sugar Shaker – HNT

Shakers & Salt Servers

Item Number:  SUS-01
Dimensions:  4¾” H
Production Dates:  1915-1925

The height of the item is approximately 4¾”, with the top on.  The inside diameter of the neck usually runs between 1⅛”-1¼”, with a 1¾” outside diameter.  While it might not be obvious at first, the glass neck with have a small bevel of ground glass – located on the inside edge of the neck.  The bottom of the glass container often shows a pontil mark or scar, commonly seen in older glass.

This item has a heavy metal top (H.N.T.), which makes it very easy to distinguish from the newer Cheese/Sugar Shaker.  The top will have thirty-one (31) holes, in the shape of the Star of David.  The Sugar Shakers can also be found in a variety of E.P.N.S. lids and collars.  During the early years of production, these shakers were sent to metal working companies that mounted them with silver and nickel tops.  Only the regular Sugar Shakers (H.N.T.) were featured in the Fostoria American catalogs.
