Retro Saturday

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 those above. Others are packed away.

Some have red caps, some have yellow caps.

Some have scenes on them.

One is all by itself.

A couple have decorations all the way around (the rust was free).

Some have bright red cherries.

These two are filled with flowers?

This solo one has a molded design.

Roosters reign!!

Told ya!

And this independent fella.

Mix and match.....

A tiskit, a taskit .....

Nasturtiums and berries.


And last and certainly not least......

Scotties with two garden motifs.

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.
