Antique Pewter Muffineer, Sugar Sifter or Pepper Shaker - 5
  • Today I'm listing a collection of pewter muffineers, sugar sifters or pepper shakers (generally different names for the same thing except pepper shakers tend to have smaller, round wholes).  They are being listed and priced separately, but the last photo of each listing will show you the whole group....just in case you are ready for a whole collection!

    Late 18th century pewter pepper shaker, urn shaped body with beading around the top of the urn.  It has a stepped base, and nipple finial and rounded holes.  It stands 5 1/4" tall x 2 1/8" diameter base.  I can't get the top off of this one easily and will not force it.  There are no visible touchmarks.  Some bends around the edge of the foot, slight bend where the finial meets the top and expected wear.  Continental, circa 1790.
