Coors Ceramics
Coors ceramic breweriana

Salt Shakers - During Prohibition salt was often added to home-brew to enhance the head. This practice continued when beer was legalized, and taverns usually placed salt shakers on the Bar.
 
In 1933 the Coors Porcelain Co. began producing mini bottle salt shakers to promote the brand. First they introduced a long neck, then in 1936 they introduced the "stubby" (above right). A barrel was also produced (far right) that is often sold in pairs as salt & peppers, but these too were only salts - as the hole pattern is always the same.

Then in 1937 the label changed on their beer bottles and cans, so the salt shakers changed as well (above left).
With the onset of WWII the porcelain factory concentrated on the war effort, and salt shakers were no longer produced.

Alpha-numeric references for the Coors Ceramic salt shakers are from Robert Kay's "Miniature Beer Bottles & Go-Withs" - and so is the grading standard.
