The AGSSSC is a group of salt and sugar shaker collectors who encourage, promote, and support the collection and study of late 19th
and early 20th century glass salt and sugar shakers. The Club seeks to stimulate interest and education of members and the general public
about this distinctive, historical and decorative art form by providing written documentation, research, news articles and opportunities
for meetings and discussions.
The salt shakers pictured above are some of the earliest of over 1,200 shakers the Identification Committee has recently reviewed for data content, photo clarity,
and inclusion in a new group of "Galleries". This project will continue well into 2017 until all shakers, their data and photos, are converted into the new Gallery format.
At present seven Galleries have been created from the original list of shakers. A new Gallery will be added at least each month, with many shakers enjoying updated information
via continued research of international reference materials such as books on Victorian glass, company catalog pages, and museum sites.
If you click on the "Identify Unknown Shaker" heading (left above), you will learn more about the Committee procedures, go to Numerical or
Alphabetical listings (now under complete revision) of all shakers that have been ID'd, visit picture galleries of shakers that have been ID'd or are still "unknown,"
or click "Home" to return to this "Welcome" page to make another selection. If you click on each shaker above (as well as those in the Numerical
or Alphabetical listings), you will be led to specific information about that shaker. Little is known about several of the ID shakers above. If you
have more information, please contact your webmaster or Brad Gougeon, our ID chairman. Read articles about special shakers or about
Club activities by clicking on other headings above.
