For those that are unfamiliar with this item, it’s a sugar shaker by Meriden and the lid is stamped by Wilcox. Sugar shakers are true rarities of the Brilliant Period – seldom seen or found. Meriden actually produced a good five or six different varieties in different shapes and sizes.
The pattern on this shaker mixes a wide variety of motifs which compliment one another perfectly. Towards the more bulbous base is a large hobstar. Topping each hobstar are two fields of crosshatching topped with an adjacent field of hobnail. That same hobnail field is reversed in direction, pointing toward the bottom in between each hobstar. The top of the shaker is finished with fans and the base is covered in a rayed star.
The shaker is in perfect condition and measures a large 4 3/4″ tall and 2 1/2″ tall. There are no stains, chips or cracks.
