Northwood's Cactus in Blue Opalescent
|A member reports a recent purchase of
a known shaker in a rare color. Northwood's Cactus in known in many
colors but has never been pictured in Blue Opalescent Stripe. The member
reports that one was seen at Brimfield about 15 years ago but the dealer
wanted over twice the price of a beautifully decorated Mt Washington egg
shaker. Not knowing the rarity of it, it was passed. However, the search
has been ongoing since, only to finally be found in 2004 in an Antique
Mall. The price was still higher than others of comparable quality
but that no longer mattered.
It is now posted with the other Cactus shakers in the Shaker Picture section. It has just been redone with more and better pictures. You can click here to go directly there.
