Swanky Swig Popsy Cake Flour Glass


1 in stock


The term Swanky Swig technically belongs to Kraft glasses only, but just like we describe all early plastics as Bakelite, so too has the generic term Swanky Swig, been adopted to refer to all glasses sold during the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s.

Companies in Australia such as Kraft, Sanitarium, ETA, Cottees, Greig’s, Tristrams, Jack & Jill & Barnes, sold condiments including Vegemite, Marmite, peanut butter, mayonnaise, sweet spread like lemon butter, honey or a savoury relish for sandwiches, nuts, pickled onions & gherkins. Once the contents were consumed, collect and re-use the glasses.

This glass contained flour.  Popsy Cake Flour was introduced to Australia from America.  This glass has a convenient measure on it.  Should you be a Popsy collector, also on the shelves are a green Popsy glass & a deep red coloured glass, not featured online.
