Nice shakers. I have a set of beehive
Cool dep era shakers! Their lids are repop? Pretty glow under B light! I had some awhile back but was frustrated with the replacement lids that I could find back then... either fugly (beat up rusted to death or reshaped and poorly fitting) or so new looking that I worried it would make the glass appear new (faked) So, I quit collecting them and went after the match holders & toothpick holders and such.
Thanks for participating in the discussion

On the subject of glass color runs I have somehow managed to put together a cone ink display color run. All smooth base no Carters ink. Cone colors 2-24-2021.jpgAll dug by me except the emerald green. That one I purchased from a fellow digger at our show, he had dug it up earlier in the year with me and I decided to pull the trigger and add it to my collection because I had started to notice the building group. I remember where each one was dug...
