The Antique and Art Glass Salt Shaker Collector's Society was founded by the late Dottie and Bill Avery in 1983 with the first newsletter published in March of that year. It has prospered as a club since that time developing into one of the premier collecting societies for antiques. As a result of this club, antique salt shakers have seen a remarkable rise in popularity.
The club has prospered because of the excellent membership of collectors of quality glass shakers that it has attracted and developed. However, the success of the club has been as a direct result of the enthusiasm, hard work and continuous dedication of some of its founders.
The Pioneer salt shaker has particular significance to antique salt shaker collectors. The AGSSSC (our name and mission were changed in 2007 to include sugar shakers) Quarterly Newsletter is named The Pioneer. Please click on the picture caption below to read the story.
