    Gorgeous set! And incredible that you have so many of them. Most of these I’ve seen with the milk glass and red metal lids have chefs on the front of them. I love the rooster, especially his atomic tail.

    More than likely, somewhere out there there’s a little wooden rack that used to hold all of these.

    I know aren’t these great. They actually belong in a metal rack that I have been searching high and low for. That would make this little find complete!

    Karen, these shakers are gorgeous. I found a set too this weekend that are wood but these really make me want to hit the “jealous button” here at awmok.com.

    Woopsie, I need to clarify. The shakers are Tipp. Tipp is Tipp Novelty Co. out of Tipp City, OH which was founded in the late 1890’s. Tipp made pressed glass and decorative novelties for glass companies like McKee Glass. These are most likely McKee shakers but I call them Tipp since that is what appears on the bottom of the jars.
