Mary, you crack me up. Nothing like a smile to brighten the day. I am on Facebook as it is the only way I see and know about some of my relies. Nobody keeps in touch anymore. It does worry me about how "Big Brother" it is. That movie scared me silly when I first saw it and it seems to be coming true

Just got this from a friend and I thought it funnier than hello - Have to share it ---

I am not on Facebook so cannot relate, but some of you might.

I am trying to make new friends without using Facebook, but while applying the same principles.
Every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later, and with whom. I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.
I also listen to their conversations, then give them the "thumbs up" and tell them I like them.
And it works!
I already have four people following me:
Two police officers, a private investigator, and a psychiatrist.

I can understand increasing your maximum bid, especially on a really nice item if the bids are close to what you have for a max bid and don't have time to watch the item close, by this person bids several times in a row. I know there is a button that says bid again, but I'm thinking this person doesn't realize they can place a maximum bid, but that it doesn't mean that would be your final price. For example, I just won a salt for$5, my max bid was $15, but since no one bid more than my$5. I only pay the$5.

Hey Jan, I was wondering how you were doing. Yes, I spend way too much time in Iowa--Walnut in June and Knoxville nationals in August and Boone Nationals in September. We should get together!!

Mary, yes they are mine. 😏
Don you have caught me out, I actually had 8 of these,I bought the set of 4 very cheap as one salt was broken, then I saw 2 salts and bought them and replaced the broken one in the box.
Then saw the box of two and bought them as they were so pretty. Hopeless aren’t I. I think ??? I gave the spare one away but it was a few years ago. If I do come across it, it is yours.

It's bad enough, to know that someone has 6 examples of a salt I've never seen, but to have 2 different sets is TOO MUCH! Did you buy them together, or separately? The salts are the same, but the spoons are different in each set. There's just NO REASON that one person should have 6 of the same thing!! I bet you could find 5 people who would be GLAD to help solve your "overstocked problem"!! I certainly would be in line! GREAT FIND!

Okay Janelle -= If they - "the experts" can do it - We the collectors of many years and having hundreds of salts should be able to - We can take one salt a week and post pictures and have a contest on the board for an appropriate - or even un-appropriate name for it -- How many times have you seen when researching a salt "named by ...." - We can have a new research book with all of the pieces having a pattern named by "Open salts chat board contest" - Dang I really like that - Oh and I have FUZZY DICE coming for my speed walker -- Life is good when you can laugh at yourself and enjoy the laughter of others -

Happy Valentine's Day -- New red or pink salts anyone???????

Janelle ~ The original U.S. Glass name for No. 15086 aka Galloway is MIRROR PLATE. Woodrow is what Canadians call it. The way people work out the pattern name is from factory or other catalogs, ads, or announcements in trade journals.

You're right Janelle. Every piece of Galloway where I could clearly see the design within the teardrop diamond matches the round dish. Having the salt and dish in my hands I only pointed out the differences between the two. Why they would make the salt different is a mystery to me. Even the toothpick holder which is a smaller piece has the design of the dish, not the salt. Why change the number of rows in the arch from two to three, or the other way around? Did the salt come first and then other pieces were designed a bit differently? We will never know.

Debi, it sure is confusing. When I looked at the Galloway Pattern on images so many came up the same as my dish calling it Galloway, Woodrow also Mirror plus a few other names. Plus a number of makers. Even a search on EBay does the same thing. How anyone works out a correct pattern is beyond me,

Thanks Janelle: You are really good at putting those pictures together. I can do it in Paint Shop but it takes quite a few steps. I'm guessing you have an app for that? LOL

I'm sure you can see the differences in the two pieces. Even if the two row/three row thing was an adjustment in the pattern size I have a problem with the teardrops not being the same at all. I think I remember something about a Galloway or Galloway-like pattern made in Canada. I wonder if the round dish is part of that pattern.

I've been doing a little clean up and reworking of the website today. I was going back through the messages to find Judy's pictures of the salts/ashtrays everyone thinks are Fenton to put them on the website. I've decided to say they are possibly open salts, but might also be ashtrays and the maker is NOT Fenton.

Anyway, I got sidetracked going back through the pictures and conversations on the Galloway pattern salt and the round dish. Comparing both, they are very similar, but different designs. You can only really tell the differences when you look at enlarged pictures or use a magnifying glass on the actual items. I have both, but Janelle's round /m18420 and Jan's oval /m18445 pictures are good enough to compare. Jan's Galloway oval salt has two rows of tiny pointed squares in the arches and the little "star" where the arches meet is a small teardrop shaped diamond with an indented square and cross. The bottom is your basic rays that resembles Daisy petals.

Janele's round dish has three rows within each arch, and 9 pointy squares or diamonds in the teardrop shape. Not the same. Bottom is fancier too, not the plain rays of the Galloway oval salt. So in my opinion (and it is just my opinion) these two patterns are VERY similar, but not the same.

Yeah, can't say how many times I've had to explain to a dealer what an 'open salt' is, most of the time all I get is a dumb stare, and sometimes they tell me they're called salt cellars. I sometimes think I should print up a little card with the various web site addresses and book references. And there are some dealers sites I like to visit just for the rediculus descriptions- and not just salts!

I knew there would be a logical explanation for an illogical plethora of truly stupid sellers - I believe a collector of salts when they say it because they have normally seen enough that even if no actual information is available on the salt - there is a bit of knowledge and reasoning behind the statement - But so tired of DUH and that will cost you $100 with no informative backing -- I sleep now - well I sleep now soon - Need to turn the A/C off first - OMG did I say that -- Swap ya heat for wet ???!!!???

Yep, snow on top of snow on top of snow here. Don't think it's supposed to warm up any time soon for snow to melt, soooooo, just watching TV and staying cozy inside.

Mary, it's amazing how many (insert air quotes here) antique dealers (end quote) have never seen an open salt so it simply MUST be a rarity. All one needs to do to find out how rare something might be is to search eBay first. So many times I have wondered if an eBay seller has even bothered to see if something similar is already listed. I conclude they have not when their price is ten times the going rate, and theirs is scarce or rare even if there are many more listed. They don't seem to realize they appear deceptive and we are really laughing at their stupidity. They even continue to renew the listing over and over at the same high price.

Okay Okay - while you all are huddled down trying to stay warm - Answer me this -- If on eBay - a seller does not know

a) Who manufactured a salt
b) What the salt is made of
c) When the salt was made
d) What country the salt was made in
e) What marks if any are on the salt
and f) it is the first salt they have ever seen

How can they positively and blatantly state it to be "Extremely rare" ????? Duh and double DUH

Thank you for your helpful insight into this mystery and hopefully before bedding down time so I mayst get some sleepies and not have visions of extremely rare unidentifiable salts plaguing me through the darkness and silence of the night -- Wait I snore - no silence - No double wait - I wear a CPAP mask - back to the silence of the night - except of course for the noise the dingy dong machine makes -

Still snowing here too. Lots of it since about 3AM and still going. And I hear it's snowing in Chicago which I thought would mean the snow they have will be getting here in about twelve hours. But if it's snowing all way out by Linda we may have snow for days to come. Watch out Jane. It's headed your way.

     Mary, I'm not a silver fan but that set is unique and quite beautiful. You're so right, the spoon does not match. I wonder what the matching spoon would like? It's funny, I see silver salts and automatically think of you.

     You guys should see the salts Kent won from Jeffery's auction. He did good. I bet his collection is a knockout.

Mary: I thought those hats were quite unique. I saw them months ago and I think I saved the pictures from the auction. Glad you got them!

I started working on the last Jeffrey Evans auction then totally forgot about it. Finished it up today. Some lacies as usual and a few older ones. I just don't have luck with those auctions. Every time I bid I am outbid. Then when I don't bid I see something I definitely would have paid that much for! But then add in the packing/shipping charges too.

I think this is a double by Wilhem Lutzscher #555, Germany, 1910. At first I didn't think they matched, but I noticed that the oval top of the square was surrounded by a another square. It is just hard to see on the blue example. The catalog image is from this site.

I've never seen a Blue Daum either, and I've never an under tray for them! I have different shapes, but not all are signed. I got an EMAIL from Sue Sawyer yesterday that Ed Berg's Son sent, about selling the remainder of the Berg's Salts. I find that dealing with some 3000 Salts, is probably best done at an Auction! I'm sure that the family have kept the ones that would "tempt" me. We don't have "Family" that will want any of my some 10,000 Salts!! I HOPE we can do what Ed Bowman did!

Hi Jan - Not sure of the proper way or how anyone else does it - but have been cleaning mine for years with Wright's Brass Polish - I use a damp SOFT paper towel and pour some of the liquid polish on it - Then start to polish with light pressure on the bad spots - Around the enameling mostly a patting - I have never known the polish to hurt or lift the enamel - When I am done I was it in warm water with dish soap and then dry it - That's my system - Wright or wrong - it works for me and my cloisonne

Your two salts are more contempory Daum salts from France. They are usually signed. I have one and it is signed, not on the bottom, but at the lower end of one of the lobes. It's an engraved mark and rather small. It says "Daum France". Check and see if yours are signed.

Hi all, I picked up these two salts thinking that they were Heisey's Crystolite pattern, only to find that the salt in that pattern is a swan form. 1" wide, 2" long, and about 1.5" tall. polished bottom. Any thoughts on these two?

Hi Debi...I had to have my furnace and AC replaced two years ago. I also decided on Lennox and couldn't be happier. Train is made in Texas and is usually the go-to system here, but the new Lennox system has a dual cooling feature that is worth the extra money in our Texas summers. My daughter also has a Lennox system she had put in several years ago and is very happy with it. Good luck and stay warm.

Oh Thank God! Finally some HEAT! Furnace motor blew Saturday night. Time for a new furnace so it is finally installed and the heat is on. Pounding all day long is finally over. Bought new AC at the same time but they will install that in April or May. We went with Lennox because our Lennox AC is original to the house built in 1971. I hope they still make them as good as they used to. Furnace is Lennox too. Don't even recognize the name of last furnace but we had it installed in 1994. I am beginning to get some feeling in my fingers and toes. I can bring my hands out from under the blanket now long enough to type.

Judy: I see Ed Berg's Salty Comments on this salt supposedly shown in a 1952 Westmoreland catalog. I'd sure like to see that catalog. That Grizel book on Westmoreland (that you just bought a copy of) does not show it in the open salt section.

The picture in the Clevenger booklet shows both sizes have the scalloped rim. Clevenger salts probably predated the Degenhart version that was first made in 1952 but not marked with a D in a Heart until 1972. Boyd bought the Degenhart business and equipment in 1978 All Boyd have the B in a Diamond mark.

The picture above is from the Revi book. The base to the butter dish looks exactly like the salt with plain rim, but with no measurements, well, there you go. How could we know if it's the bottom to something or not?

Here is what I have as a time line for the production of Dewdrop and Star:
Campbell, Jones & Co. designer Jenkin Jones, July 1877, discontinued 1970
Clevenger Glass Works circa 1939 (Are these the repros with a smooth rim?)
Westmoreland sold the mold to Degenhart in 1952 (Beginning of the scalloped
rim a mold by Westmoreland?). Degenhart made the scalloped rim salt circa 1860-70
Boyd circa 1978 to 2008

I can't explain the overlaps in the production unless Degenhart was first producing the salt using a borrowed mold.

Jan: Thank you for your persistence in looking through the catalogs I have posted. When Judy first asked about that salt on the pattern glass topic page a long time ago, I looked through all the USA catalogs because I was sure I had seen it, but didn't find it. So glad you did. As I was just looking through a few other German catalogs another salt popped out at me. It's H&J 535, and I have just changed the H&J Project page to reflect what I found. Jane, it will interest you because you have it.

Judy: I have already told you about this, but for anyone else interested in the Dewdrop & Star saga...just last week I bought a booklet through the Wheaton website. It is "Clevenger Brothers Glass Works The Persistence of Tradition". In it there is a black and white picture of two Dewdrop & Star salts in cobalt and amber, one is shorter than the other (less of a pedestal) and they are also two different diameters, 3-1/2" and 3-1/8". Both have scalloped rims. I did not know Clevenger Brothers made reproductions, but that's just about all they did. So that adds yet another maker to these salts!

What does the interior of the plain rim look like? Is there any ridge that would support a cover?

Jan Thanks...I have one of the beaded salts you posted. I've been looking in the books I have but haven't come up with a match.

Now on to the SMOOTH RIMMED Dewdrop and Star I just got from an eBay seller. It is larger than the salts with scalloped rims. Here is what I've found: From Ed Berg's Mossy Comments No. 5…The only differences found in all the salts with a scalloped rim can be explained by sagging of the glass when the dish was taken from the mold too soon.

The smooth rim salt is slightly larger (2/16" D and 1/4" Higher) then the scalloped salts we are familiar with. The salt shown is likely a reproduction of the orginal older salt as the glass isn't clear and the dots in the star aren't as tight and organized.

I found it in our references section under old catalogues... thank you yet again, Debi, for providing terrific resources!!

I know Jane - I know - Thought it would get to you also - I am sure somewhere someone can afford them - but not me - I sometimes wonder if these items - not just salts - that appear on eBay for such high prices ever really sell - My pet peeve right now is the auction house using eBay for cheap advertising as they have PICK UP ONLY - no shipping - I think I will file a discrimination suit against both the auction house and eBay -- Wadda ya thin -- Yep my thoughts too - Oh well it gives me pleasure to think about frivolous lawsuits - I want to be with the in crowd -- lol lol

I think my walker will probably be fine without a basket - though it would be nice - especially if I do get to a point where I can actually go for a stroll with it - Handy to carry tissue - phone and keys and perhaps some water - I will check for a soft one Nancy - thanks for the suggestion -- Having grown up with Ron - I also knew his mom and so not only was it a nice gift from him but also nice for him to know that someone his mom knew is walking with it - Still trying to figure out what happened because within an hour of mentioning it to Bob - I have one and from a friend - How cool is that -

Mary, I've used a wheeled walker for years, am on my 4th one I think. I like a soft material basket better than the hard wire ones because the walker can fold up with the soft basket in place. The wire one has to be removed before folding the walker. Maybe it would make no difference to you, but I still drive and fold my walker to slip it into the back seat of my car. No holes for things to slip through on the soft baskets too.

A doctor's prescription can get a walker covered by Medicare in many cases, and my last one was only about $50 dollars on Amazon anyway with free shipping.

Hi Nancy - It is a used one from an old neighbor - I grew up with him - His mother passed away recently and it was hers - Ran into him the other day and for some reason when he asked how I was I told him not doing good and thought I should get one of those wheeled walkers with a seat - He said come on by he had one and it was mine - so that is how I came to have one - maybe they have after market baskets I can buy -

Mary: Love the crane or stork or whatever bird it is. It is more colorful with the cranberry liners than it would have been with silver shakers anyway. Maybe it was an eggcup and shaker. Amazing how elaborate Victorian table settings must have been. I'm trying to picture a whole flock of those on a table. They must be individuals since that is also a napkin ring meant for one person.

Happy that you are mobile again!

Mary, the basket should have come as part of the Walker. It fits under the seat. The seat flips up and the basket us under and is removable.

I love it when there is no spell check in the name line - I can be whom ever I want and spelled my own way --

I have to get me one of those hangy down baskets Judy - Would make a lot of things easier - that is until I got to the steps in the front of the house - But when I can and get a chance to go walking it would hold my phone and keys and my R. Stover truffle "power bar" chocolate covered heart - We have painters today - Bubbles in the wood from the rain - so they are "fixing" that --

Thanks for the words of encouragement Lynda -

Well Moving Mary...That seat on my walker has been forced into service as a carrier for salts and my camera. Mine also has a nice basket that fits under the seat. I had to cut a piece of cardboard for the bottom of the basket to keep small salts or the feet on the larger ones from going through the basket wires. I use it to move salts and my camera from the den to the bedroom where the photo table and lights are set up. Just think how much easier it can be to move your eBay nominees to and from the garage to the office for listing. This thing has SOOOOO MANY uses!

Hi Stephanie,
Welcome. oh Mary, you have done it again, gorgeous Crane. I cracked ( again) and bought a couple of art glass salts. Nothing exciting but finding it hard to find ones I like.

Welcome Stephanie: I did a search on Bing and found this website: http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/glass_ency...ls/glass_labels.htm It dates that particular label as used between the 1950s and 1970s. Scroll down to the Czech glass section.

Thanks Jane - I have just about lost it - The walker has given me new confidence - I just have to remember to take it slow and build up strength and especially in the leg muscles that have not been put to much of a test - I know it is not going to stop the pain - but will help a bit and even more so brighten my mental - emotional and also my spiritual wellbeing - This will help me cope with the pain - On the road again - Petting doggies that are old friends again - On the road again - YEAH !!!

Mary, love your stork. I haven't bought or received any new salts.
I have that Walker that you have, Mary. It's a godsend, particularly when you have to sit quickly. My problem is that it pulls on my right shoulder and arm and that is my trouble spot now. The cane does the same thing. Enjoy your walks!

I would imagine she originally held a salt and pepper shaker - but I won her without anything in front and was lucky enough to find a couple of liners to fit - Sort of brighten her up a bit - Okay bring 'em on - Yep the ones you have been waiting to show us -- I certainly am not the only one that has bought a salt recently -- The salt walkin' fool

Okay - Okay - I know it off topic - but lets face it there hasn't been any topic for days - So I got what is like the weirdest hardest to find sterling silver figural salt in the world - but it is not a salt - not even a bowl or a table piece - A walker - a walker with a seat and four moving wheels that roll so good they need brakes - Took a little stroll in it already - Look out park I am heading your way soon - forces ne to walk straight and I can stand tall - I still gimp but I am doing it with style - I am so excited - Now to see how the back - hips and legs handle a three or four house trip in the morning - I am so stoked - I want to walk to my park - but I know I can't - Maybe in a month - I can though drive to my park and perhaps make it around the entire path soon - Dang - it is like a late Christmas - Okay I now return the board to salt chatter -- Oh Oh I have a new stork salt I can share - Maybe get you to show your new ones - I will be back soon --

With all the snow on the ground now fragments would be hard to find unless they melted all the snow around them (which I'm sure they would) and all you'd have to look for are bare spots. Too cold to be looking for rocks in the snow. Think I'll search eBay instead.

PJ: It was about 14 miles east and 10 miles north of here. Selfridge Air Force Base is only two miles south of New Haven so maybe they will have some people looking for fragments to study. I understand it was somewhat special as far as meteorites go and could be seen in 5 states and Canada.

So last night Larry happened to be walking past me and there was a loud rumbling sound and what sounded like a big boom after it. His hearing isn't what it used to be so I asked him if he just heard that. He did. He was walking toward the kitchen and said there was a flash of light outside. I didn't see that. We live adjacent to I-75 so thought there might have been an accident on the freeway. Saw on TV this morning there was a meteorite. The TV report said some people felt an earthquake effect. Spooky that it was so many miles away but we still heard it here. There's some dash cam videos of it online. Looked really big but I guess that was just the fire as it came through the atmosphere.

Well Linda - I am not sure how to break this to you ----------------- Your I don't know if its a Stueben - and thank goodness you bought it really cheap --- is for all intents and purposes an unmarked Stueben -- Yep - I checked all of mine and not one is marked - but I will go to my grave knowing they are Stueben -- Enjoy and congratulations - You had a nice cold adventure that turned out to perhaps warm your little salts picking heart -- Oh and The Tif ain't a bad addition either -

It was a pretty good day, except for the cold and snow! LOL. first show I'd been to since early last fall- I bought two other pieces, a clear pattern glass one (didn't I tell myself not to buy any of those?) and a larger piece I can only call an ice cream dish, both were loose change priced- I'll show you the dish, maybe some one will know the maker?

8th Convention salt in Cherry Hill, NJ. Salt is "Stiegel type", made by Art Reed. We had a lecture on NJ glass houses and info on Baron Von Stiegel. There may be info on it in Newsletter that followed. 2003, I think, will try to look it up.
Also, Salty Comments #50 & #88 have some information.
