Here is a Gorham sugar shaker I recently acquired. I have also heard them called sugar sifters or muffineers. Anyone know the correct term?

Anyway it is 6 3/4" tall and has the trident mark for 1897. There is a delicate band of flowers and garland around the top (I think it is engraved but could be wrong about that).

In addition to the Lion,Anchor,G and trident mark, there is a number scratched into the bottom (sc40181). Anyone know what that is for?

PS I hope the pictures work as I am using the new photo hosting. If I did something wrong, please let me know.

Nice muffineer! The scratched number is probably an owner's inventory number for insurance or some such.

Odd...I replied to this yesterday, but don't see my message.

It was short: I think these pieces are also called sugar castors or casters.
