I'm going to 'shake' it up a bit today and focus on a collection we've been gathering for a while.
It's a collection of kitchen shakers.....for everything under the sun.....from flour to paprika.
They were produced in the 30's, 40's and 50's mostly by the McKee Glass Company in the US. They were made of milk glass. It appears that from here the shakers were bought by a company called Tipp Novelty Company of Tipp City, Ohio. This company decorated the shakers.
Some we use in the kitchen...like those above. Others are packed away.
And last and certainly not least......
These shakers were lots of fun to collect. We still keep our eyes open for ones we don't have....but they are harder to find lately.
Tipp shakers are so usable and very sturdy to have around the kitchen.
Hope you all enjoyed looking at these. Now, get out and see if you can find some.
