Art Deco Pixie Sugar Shaker Caster Royal Winton Grimwades Hand Painted 1930s Elf Toadstool
This is an absolutely fabulous and fun vintage sugar shaker, muffineer or sugar caster in the Pixie line of Royal Winton Grimwades, England Relief Molded Ware made 1936-1940s with the pattern number 4037.
The ceramic shaker is 5.5 inches high by 3.5 inches wide and features a pixie or an elf under a mushroom or toadstool.
The muffineer is in very good +++ used vintage condition with no chips, cracks or wear and has it's original stopper, which I did not remove.
These are very hard to find, especially in good condition. So fun!
Sugar shakers or muffineers were popular especially from the Victorian and Edwardian eras on as a table accessory used to shake sugar on muffins, hence the name, pancakes or crumpets at the tea table.
