This canister is so beautiful. I love the milky color and the arch shapes on the sides.

This canister was made by McKee Glass Co. It is a creamy, white milk glass with an aluminum lid. The front of the canister is labeled, "Sugar" in a script font. The sides have arches, which identifies the canister as "Roman Arch". McKee also made shakers in this design.

The canister is in near perfect condition - no chips, cracks, flea bites or scratches. Inside is clean. Has one mold imperfection on the back, which looks like a tiny dimple. The rim has silvering on it from the lid. The bottom of the canister is marked with the McKee stamp (see last photo).

The lid is in good condition - twists off easily but has one small dent and some tarnishing.

Measurements: 6.25" tall, 4.25" wide, 3.5" deep
