Please note:-
The word “muffineer” used in the early 1800s to describe a shaker to hold caster sugar which could be sprinkled over muffins, scones etc.


19th century society had a fondness for kitchen utensils for almost every occasion, and for a time, the muffineer was a distinct and specialised kitchen item. Today, vintage muffineers are often sold as “antique salt shakers” or “sugar shakers” and rarely used for their original purpose.
