I finally have time to start listing some of my fabulous finds, such as this vintage milk glass salt and pepper shaker set, on my Etsy shop again! Keep checking in because over the next month I will be posting lots of fun vintage items!! Enjoy!
Here is a lovely, discontinued Puritan milk glass salt and pepper shaker set by McKee Glass Company. This vintage white milk glass set has a beautiful, delicate floral design and includes two metal tops. Both the salt and pepper shaker are in excellent condition.
Dimensions: approximately 4 1/4″ tall and 1 1/2″ Wide. I’m not sure the exact date when they were made.
McKee Glass Company began its life as McKee and Brothers Glass Works in Pittsburgh, PA in 1853. The factory later moved to Jeannette, PA, which was founded by H. Sellers McKee and named for his wife. In 1901, the National Glass Company took over the factory and ran it as McKee Glass until 1904. In 1904, National leased the factory to McKee-Jeannette Glass Company. In 1908, the company reorganized and became the McKee Glass Company and became McKee Division of the Thatcher Glass Co. in 1951 and finally bought out by the Jeannette Corporation in 1961.
