Collectible syrup jugs & sugar shakers

Clockwise from top, our collection of 19th century pieces includes: opalescent “Big Daisy” syrup jug; vaseline glass opalescent “Spanish Lace” sugar shaker; blue opalescent spot-columned syrup jug; cranberry glass opalescent coin-spot sugar shaker with nine panels.

Your great-grandma probably used pretty pieces like thesse: jugs for pouring maple syrup on pancakes, shakers for dusting sugar on toast or muffins. Found in many American homes from the 1870s until World War I, these lacy glass containers are now popular collectors’ items. – Rosemary L Klein
