Vintage Gay Fad Salt And Pepper Shakers

Gay Fad Shakers Look Great With A Colorful Vintage Tablecloth

Look how fabulous these Gay Fad style salt and pepper shakers look on a colorful vintage tablecloth with similar primary colors.The shop, Retro Revival is one of my favorites on but has taken a long hiatus. Never the less,  I thought I would share with you this great retro combo that the sho owner put together.

Fran Taylor, an artist and designer founded Gay Fad Studios and built it into an extroidinary glass decorating company. Taylor worked  from home from 1938-1945 hand decorating tin items, waste paper baskets and glassware. In 1945 she opened Gay Fad Studios in Lancaster ohio.

Fran and her staff bought blanks form major glass companies and beegan had decorating them. Few of her pieces were marked, according to an online artice at  Retro Revival usually does wonderful research on her items for sale. She describes the set shown as being 1945 Gay Fad, Hazel Atlas Fruit pattern.
