VINTAGE METAL POWDER SUGAR / SHAKER SALT SHAKER
Cute vintage little shaker which I was going to use for powdered sugar when dusting cookies or cakes.
It is metal and is 3-1/4" high and 1-7/8" across the bottom. The bottom unscrews and comes off and that is where it is filled. You have to work with screwing it on a bit but you can get it on. The former owner tried to etch "Salt" on the front but was not very successful and it is a bit hard to read and I really did not notice it until I started examining it closely. Good size handle to grip onto.
When I bought this some time ago, I loved it because it looked so vintage, dented and worn and must have had quite a history. It is old looking with wear and dents and scratches but I loved it because of that. I never used it for dusting cookies with sugar but it would be very handy for that as well as salt, "everything seasoning", cinnamon or any other seasonings or spices that you often use.
It could also be used for seasonings to sprinkle on your garlic bread, fish, sugar on snickerdoodles, sparkling red and green sugar on top of Christmas cookies, shakable toppings on a latte or to put in a vintage kitchen collection. It's a cute tiny little thing!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
