I love Jadite.. It doesn’t have to be Fire King.. or even the old stuff. I’ve been thinking about making this cabinet my mother in law gave me… an “all Jadite” shelf in my dining room.
Currently it holds some green stuff.. and a small portion of my pig collection..
It REALLY needs some of this Jadite…
1. Vintage McKee Jadite Roman Arch Shakers eBay item #280462231107 eBay Seller downsizer817
Here’s what they say about it:
These are the McKee depression era Roman Arch Shakers. They measure 4 1/4″ tall with the lids on. They are guaranteed old. They glow under black light. The bottom of Salt is marked with a very faint McK in circle, and Flour marked with a very faint “PAT. APPLD FOR”. The items in the last two pictures are listed in other auctions.
CONDITION is excellent, very glossy and without chips or cracks, very smooth rims. The lids are in very good condition but I think they are not all original. There are some typical swirls and mold lines and minor straw marks in the glass. The lettering is all very strong and solid, except top of first e in pepper. The shakers are a nice match in coloring as a set. The color variations seen from picture to picture is due to different lighting and the use of the flash on the camera. This set includes the SPICE shaker, and makes a beautiful display. Difficult to get all 5 shakers in one set.
SALT – very little bit of inner rim roughness, and some very minor wear on bottom, lettering solid & strong, bottom is marked with a very faint McK in circle. PEPPER – slight fading at top of first “e”, otherwise lettering is all very strong and solid, smooth rims. FLOUR – very little bit of inner rim roughness, lettering is very strong and solid, bottom is marked with a very faint “PAT. APPLD FOR”. SUGAR – smooth rims, strong solid lettering. SPICE – smooth rims, strong solid lettering, pinpoint shallow nick at the base of one arch on the side, not noticeable, only found it by feeling it.
We have other pieces of Vintage Kitchen Ware, Jeannette Delphite and Jadite Depression Glass listed also, some of which are shown in the last two pictures.
Here’s what they say about it:
UP FOR AUCTION IS AN AMAZING SET OF FIRE KING NESTED MIXING BOWLS WITH A SWIRLED PATTERN ON THE OUTSIDE. THE 5 BOWLS ARE IN THE JADITE COLOR WITH THE LARGEST BOWL BEING 9″ IN DIAMETER AND THE SMALLEST BOWL BEING 5″ IN DIAMETER.
I WOULD SAY THE BOWLS ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION–PLEASE NOTE I DON’T CONSIDER MYSELF AN EXPERT IN THIS FIELD. THEY HAVE NORMAL SHELF WARE BUT NO CRACKS OR CHIPS.
