Description

Always nice to know the background of vintage/antique...

The Westmoreland Glass Company produced glass in Grapeville, Pennsylvania. It was founded in 1889 when a group of men purchased the Specialty Glass Company located in East Liverpool, Ohio, and moved it to Grapeville, Pennsylvania. Grapeville was chosen as the location of the factory because the property had a large source of natural gas. George West served as president of the company, while his brother Charles West was the Vice President. Ira Brainard was the primary financial backer of Westmoreland. His son J.J. Brainard was an officer in the company. Westmoreland's main production was pressed glass tableware lines, mustard jars, and candy containers. Westmoreland had its own mustard factory and tin shop on the property grounds of the factory. Charles West is regarded as the "Father of the Candy Container Industry" for the company's extensive production of candy containers. West Brothers was a separate company which produced the candy containers and other tinware while operating from the same factory.

Nice pair of Westmoreland 1950's paneled grape salt and pepper shakers, these are 4 3/4" tall and have a flat bottom. The caps are in very good condition, no corrosion :) They are a very nice functional and attractive pair of shakers, that go with almost any decor.

No chips or cracks, excellent condition.

Enjoy!
