Circa: 1899 - 1908, Antique, EAPG
Condition: Used
Size: 6 1/2" Tall
Color: White w Red, Pink, & Brown
Type: Salt & Pepper Shakers
Country of Origin: United States
Manufacturer: Unknown Antique

At Memory Lane
This antique milk glass condiment set of salt, pepper, and mustard containers is complete with all the respective lids. The base is scalloped and has a handle.
The base color is, naturally, white. It has been hand painted with a cranberry red at the top of the glass and then it disappears – fades out. The jars are all painted with brown ferns. Once again the fading affect is carried thru – but starting at the bottom instead and then disappearing towards the top.
This is the antique blown and pressed fern condiment set and it is identified as such. There is a vintage condiment set, made by Imperial in the 1950s. The Imperial vintage set is a bit different; along with the obvious newer jar tops and lids, the motif painting that Imperial had applied is completely different. It is a beautiful set, but it is not this antique set. If you are looking for the vintage set; this set is not for you. I have seen online some of the vintage sets identified as antique, so please be aware of what you are buying. I have also seen sold online the antique base being sold with the vintage jars; once again, please educate yourself and be aware of what you are purchasing.

Material: Antique Milk Glass
Color: White (Also known as Opal, Opaline, or Opalware) w Cranberry Red, Pink, and Brown
Base Height w Handle: 6 1/2" +/-
Base Width: 5 3/8" +/-
Height of Salt & Pepper Shakers: 3 ¼" +/-
Height of Mustard Container: 3" +/-
Creation Date: 1899 to 1908 +/-
Maker: unk
Bottom Marks: None


Base Paint Condition: Excellent. As it was applied with all of its imperfections since it was hand painted.
Base Glass Condition: Very Good. There are no chips on the top or the bottom. There is discoloration in one of the sockets.
Base Handle: Fair. It is a bit rusted.

Paint Condition of Jars: Excellent. Once again, as it was applied with all of its imperfections since they also were hand painted.
Glass Condition of Jars: Excellent. As they were formed. Please note that the glass of one of the salt/pepper containers is quite thick; but that is how it was formed. It, no way, affects the lid positioning on the jar.
Metal Lids: Good. You can tell they have been used. The lid to the mustard container has a littler green Verdi, but not much. I cleaned it a bit, but I did not go crazy.

Spoon. The spoon is not original to the set. As far as I know, they did not come with one. But either way, this one is silver plated and was probably created sometime in the 1950s. It is marked with "GERO ZILMETA". It is in excellent condition and is stainless steel. It is almost 4 1/2" long.

You are purchasing and will receive this condiment base, the three jars, the three lids to these jars, and the cute little mustard spoon.

I have provided you with several pictures. I hope, the pictures along with this lengthy description, will give you a sense of how very special this set is.

Thank you for reading this. I apologize for the length. My descriptions are not always this long. But I felt an explanation was necessary in this case.

Note for other Sellers! The title, description, pictures, and the research (whole or in part) are solely the property of At Memory Lane. Ride on your own coattails.
