Boston Sandwich type Citrine Molded Glass Pewter-top Castor, ca. 1860-1880
A very nice scarce citrine yellow color castor with original pewter top, c. 1870. Likely from the Boston and Sandwich
Glass Co. that operated in Barnstable County Massachusetts from 1826-1888.
This eight-sided molded shaker/castor stands 3" tall and has a 1-3/4" base. The top was pushed in just slightly.
Otherwise, the shaker and pewter ribbed top are in very good overall condition. No breaks, cracks or repairs.
