Sterling Holloware: Sugar Shakers

Vintage Silver Sugar Shakers

Quite like salt and pepper shakers, vintage silver sugar shakers originally went by the name “sugar caster.” People use the sugar caster to sweeten their tea, other beverages, and food. They initially were plain cylindrical containers. It wasn’t until later that the ornate dome-shaped top design was produced. You will come across vintage silver sugar shakers from the 1730s that are an octagonal form with a concave body above and below. Visit Nelson & Nelson online or at our New York City store to look at our incredible collection of silver sugar casters that is sure to make any collector happy.
