Nancy and Mary, the hallmarks on that salt ( the f) will give you the date the salt was made, the design number only will give the date that particular Pattern was registered or copyright was given. Then the pattern could have been used at anytime in the firms history which went from 1875 to 1910.
I should have clarified that before, but I guess you both know that.

  Ebay, we all seem to do things a little the same and a little different. My watch list items end and go to the end of the list for me to keep, check or delete. On my items I bid on...At the left side I have a choice to click on a "bid/offer" line to see what an item went for. I don't know if this is something that has to be set up from your account page or what.

I think eBay is still screwing around with what they are doing regarding sold items. Before, I went to Mary's seller's list that I have saved in my favorite sellers and checked the box for sold items. Then I clicked on the opaque blue in silver holder salt. What came up was a current item for sale by someone else. Now when I do the same thing, Mary's exact sold item comes up. And I save everything in my watch list I want to watch regardless if I plan to bid on it or not. Once the auction or buy it now period ends, it is hit or miss if the actual item I was watching comes up. So I don't think having it your watch list makes any difference. I never receive emails from eBay that an item in watch list has ended. There are settings for that and I said I didn't want the emails. If you go to My eBay, then click on Account, there is a Communications line on the left side. You can set everything there.

I have been putting anything I have interest in - even ones I am bidding on - in my watch list since they changed things - I have posted that a couple of times - Once for Debi and for you yesterday - Maybe I chatter too much when I give information - Like now

I complained recently about not being able to access eBay auction information after it ended. I just got email saying a watched item had ended and I was able to access all the bidding information through that. Maybe the only way to see information about an ended auction is if you had it on your watch list. That's better than nothing.

Very nice Nancy - I haven't paid much attention to QVC since my mom passed - She was a great patron of theirs - I finally had to tell her that if what arrived was going to require more than simply plugging it in - She could not have it - She thought I could do everything including high tech computer stuff - DUH Plug in - Plug out - I got it

Happy Day to you Eddie - You need to be honored !!

As soon as I saw the R - I had a feeling it was a registration mark - but I am so leery of posting my suspicions as most of the time they are simple wisps of thought - This time I was right and silent - Go figure - Thanks a bunch Janelle - Glad you got an answer also Nancy - I probably would never have paid any attention if you had not said something - and the salt beat goes on

Thanks, Janelle. I think it is a registered design number. After polishing, I can see that I have a letter or two followed by a row of numbers. I can't tell if the letters are Rd or Rg, but the numbers are 44655. That seems to give me the date, though the letter f should be a date mark also, maybe? The rim also has English hallmarks. The lion for sterling, the anchor for Birmingham, a lower case f, and the initials H B for the maker. Anyway, I seem to have complete information now!

12:04 AM ET (US)
Mary & Nancy, I think the numbers on your salts could be a registered design number, more likely American because if it was English, the silver would be hallmarked although not if it may be Plate. If it says Rd 44655 or Rg 44655 the date would be 1886-1887 if English, Or 1864-1865 if American. If you can get a close up photo I may be able to help more but fairly certain it would be a registered design number.

I will have to send a picture to Don - he has everything ---

eBay keeps changing everything at the drop of a hat and then asks you how you like it or doesn't ask because they really don't care - I am keeping things I bid on or am interested in - in my watch list - Only way to check a closed auction now is to put basically most of the title in an open search and then go down the side and choose closed auctions - Just time consuming and because some twerp decided they needed to justify their job and come up with some nifty idea that only works in their head - Yep I said twerp -- Okay my happy time is over and I must get all things and all warm bodies ready for bed - Tomorrow is but a snore or two away -

Mary, I thought the first thing in the long string might be the letter R. I have polished mine and will get a loupe and take a closer look at the mark.

That's one handsome glass piece mounded on a metal base.

I really came back here to say I hate eBay's recent change with recently closed auctions. Instead of letting you look at details of a sale, it takes you to something they fancy is related! Darn it, I want to see details of the final bidding! I had a piece in my watch list, had put a snipe on it, and I can't see how the final bidding went! I want to grab eBay by the throat when stuff like this happens.

While I am in Saltland - I was the only bidder on a collection of salt from the Berg collection - Basically your basic clear glass peds - but this one intrigued me and I figure I paid a good price for it - not because of the bidding - as I was the only one - but because of the postage - The copper/brass holder was made for the glass bowl that sits a top of it and is held in by a very good screw - The glass bowl is not one I have ever seen with a pedestal attached and there is no indication a pedestal was removed from the base of the bowl - It is an amazing piece and heavier than any salt in its particular make up I have ever held - The heft is definitely in the glass and not in the attached stand - I am very happy to have paid a good price for it and now having it in my hands would have paid more had I seen it at a show - Speaking of shows - It is - a Show Stopper - Has anyone seen anything like it or have one -

Okay Nancy - Best guess on some of this - Capital R then across from the top portion is a small capital D or O - followed by the numbers 44655 - The 55 is over stamped on top of two symbols I cannot make out - May even be a double stamp of the two fives - Then there is some symbol that looks like a pickle or a finger - or only the Salt Gods know what - Maybe Janelle can help us - she is good with strange silver markings - I am going to post a picture of his simple brother - Both from the same seller - You all will love him - Cranberry glass - I will have to take my own picture for you - the coloring in the auction is really sick and he is so pretty - Later with the cranberry -

It is actually a string of numbers Nancy - Preceded by a couple of letters - When I can find my loupe and a few salt minutes again - I will let you know what I can read - The matching spoon does not have them - so the numbering is unique to the salt - Worth the addition to your list Linda -- Elegant salt

Mary, I've had a pottery salt with sterling rim identical to yours for many years and have always liked it. The rim bears the same marks. I just noticed that around the rim on the opposite side is another mark that is a puzzle to me. It looks like just a string of little circles, larger circle at one end, something, maybe a letter at the other end. Does your salt rim have this?

You know I'm not a silver lover but this salt is beautiful. Is the base pottery? I know you said Maker was Birmingham, which is English... right? Well, leave it to my brain but when I looked at it the 1st thing I thought was Arapaho indian. You found a beautiful treasure.

I desperately need to play salt with all of you - I just got a new addition to my silver rims - am trying to stop with the clear glass and stay with porcelain and other materials - I do not usually keep spoons with my salts - but this one must stay as it has the same marks as the rim - This is more than likely from a boxed set that had spoons also - Birmingham 1904 Henry Bourne - Name sounds familiar so I must have another piece from him - Maybe sometime I should make a list of all the silversmiths I have represented and see how many duplicates I have - Anyone already done that - Thanks for a brief respite from reality - Love your salts Jane - everyone did good over the weekend -

Great finds everyone, Susie, what a great set and Lynda glad you found a Galloway. Jane you did well.

 Linda, I think many other glass manufactures would have used Berries to cover the Pontils on the art glass salts, just a matter of finding one that can definitely be attributed to a maker or documented. I don’t think any of mine with the Webb petals has a Berry pontil but a couple of other styles that may be Webb have. Also when you look there are a variety of styles of Berries
used. I think I need to do a bit of research on styles, colours and Berries on some of my Art Glass. The book I mentioned has about 8 photos of Berries but not all attributed.

Nancy V, the Moorcroft only cost me about $10, and I liked the look of it, unlike some of the Moorcroft that's too dark and gloomy. I guess I can tell you all that where I went was the Walnut Iowa AMVETS Father's day antique and flea market. They claim 500 venders, I think there are a few more than that. There wasn't a lot of junk this year,lots of good stuff. The town's main street is actually named Antique City Drive, and Most of the stores there are antique stores. It's great if you're able to walk it all.
Susie, love your boxed set, but I love boxed sets anyway.!!

Linda H, that must have been some "flea market" to find all those great salts. I love all the art glass ones, and I'm fond of Moorcroft pottery. I have several small Moorcroft bowls shaped like yours, the smallest o.k. for salt size, just under 3" wide. I have only one Moorcroft that is definitely a salt, set on a small pedestal, dark blue with pansys in the bowl.

Wow Linda, you did well. the mauve is definitely Webb by the trademark petals, the cranberry is attributed to Stevens but not sure if confirmed. I have it in a couple of colours but not mauve, I think Susie has that one. Certainly lovely salts.

Now that I have looked at some art glass salts I think the conversation was about a different salt and all the colors it was made in. I think it was this one. There are several colors pictured on the website in the Gallery under Art Glass in Holders. Sorry for the confusion.

 #20251 is definitely from a condiment as Debi said. I'm not into pottery salts (but love pottery like Roseville.??? Strange huh?) but that Moorcroft, that is very pretty. Congratulations.

Don't bother looking Linda. It's probably been deleted. I can only keep the last year or so because of picture space. But if the conversation was on a topic page, those have been preserved. Just don't remember how long ago or what topic it might have been.

For some reason my camera works fine, then the next few pictures are fuzzy. I'll try to retake it later. The roses are a little "fuzzy" anyway. I know Webb and Stevens and Williams did a lot of the salts with rig-a-ree, but it seems like only one did the berry. Seems like Davidson did some if the blown ones too.
Seems like there was a vaseline flower too. How long ago was that? Going to take a while to find the conversation.

WOW! Linda, you did great. Some time back Janelle was wondering how many colors that amethyst flower shape came in. I don't remember if the amethyst was a named one or not. There is an apricot color, cranberry, a darker blue, maybe green...can't remember now. I think the raspberry pontils are Webb from England, but let Janelle tell us for sure. She's the expert on Webb. Love the Moorcroft too.

The last one you posted is a bit fuzzy but it looks like it might be part of a condiment set in a holder.

   Jane and eveybody. Jan is missing Stan very much. She has good days and bad. Many people really found her husband to be a remarkable man and this helps her a lot. You all know how your mate becomes such an intricate part of your life. He was bread to her butter, pepper to her salt. They were good together. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Kent: eBay doesn't listen anyway. You would think they would, but they don't. They are only interested in the bottom line so it doesn't matter to them that you are looking at a sold item for a reason. They want you to look at unsold items and buy them. They are clueless and don't care that they are pissing people off. They are trying to be "helpful". In Larry's opinion it's another case of job justification. Someone had to be doing something different, for better or worse, to be relevant and keep their job.

Someone told Lesley I got my salts without stickers and she mailed them to me. No note, just the stickers. Got them Thursday or Friday.

Debi, I have noticed the new EBAY "feature" that you mentioned, substituting a similar unsold listing when you try to pull up a sold listing. I tried to register my frustration with this unwanted "feature" but could not figure out how to do it. What is the best way to let EBAY know it is not appreciated?

About the Berg Salt stickers. I am helping to sell, and got three boxes of salts with separate stickers on sheets. I haven't sold as many as some, but I have already forgotten to put the stickers on one of the lots I sold. I remembered after the package was sealed and ready for the Post Office so had to send the stickers in a separate envelope. The buyer was gracious enough to agree to apply them herself. It is intended that each Berg salt get a sticker. If you received salts without stickers, then it was a mistake. Please notify the seller that you did not receive the stickers for your lot. Remember that we are dealing with 3000 salts in this project. Stickers are not applied until bags of wrapped salts are opened and ready to list on EBAY. Personally, I have found that it is very easy to overlook this step.

Mary: I tried looking at your sold items once I was on you as a seller. On some of them another listing will come up and not yours. I suppose if not enough words match the actual sold item will show up, but many times it is another auction listed by someone else that is not yet ended.

Great news about Bob but you have some issues yourself. I hope you will have some help with Bob if you find you need it. It won't do either of you any good if you get injured trying to help Bob.

I always get around it by either going to something the seller has listed and when that sellers arena - look down the side for sold items - Or putting in a very close - if not word for word - description and then doing the same thing - going down the choices on the side and choosing sold - You always have to be one step ahead of eBay

Meeting tomorrow to find out about Bob - One of the doctors was in today and told him he was going home this week he just did not know if it would be Wednesday - Thursday or Friday - I know we are both ready for him to be home - I have some questions for those present tomorrow morning and Bob and I know it is going to be slow going at home and we both will have some adjusting to do - He will have to adjust and accept more than me - I have the full roll of duct tape and have been practicing taping to large areas ---

Anyone else notice how eBay is screwing around again? Larry discovered it when he tried to look at a sold item of one of his friends. If there is anything similar to the sold item currently listed, they show you that instead. There's a note saying the item you were looking for is already sold but here is something you might be interested in instead. That does not help when you want to see the sold item. Doesn't seem to happen all the time, but it is happening a lot.

Beautiful salts Mary, love the green salts though the zodiac salts are fantastic, I have a Melon shaped salt the same so no worries. Also as I am refraining from buying (although a really lovely art glass could tempt me) I need to get my salt fix from everyone else’s purchases.
So glad Bob is improving but make sure you get some “me “ time to relax and recover also.

Mary, Over father's day weekend. I've got about six or so dealers who are "expecting" me, and they have learned to bring good stuff for me. Of course that doesn't mean I can afford to buy it all. One dealer lives north of me in the sandhills, and I always offer to help her out, even tho she usually refuses any help. her age is, well, lets say indeterminate, and she runs all over the country by herself. I hope I'm as active when I reach that age as she is.
You'd get a kick out of it, even if you do end up walking for miles. Usually it's some of the hottest days in June.
Maybe Jan could meet me there? I think of her often.

Sure am glad I have a short name --
Just read what I posted and obviously not in the mental loop yet - I bought several of the art glass pieces for resale and then when opening them - fell in love -

This "Set" is amazing - Seller said Henry Holland - I will have to dig a bit deeper as I think they have some more marks I can look up - I thought I would keep one and of course list the other one - I paid no attention to the sellers description beyond pictures and sizing - So they came and are absolutely exquisite - I started to look at the signs and could not find Gemini - Then I thought there are only six signs and the zodiac is twelve signs - Yep you all are ahead of me - the other one had the rest of or the start of the signs - So the salts are a true set - Is this cool er what - Guess I have momentary lapses of salt - or for that matter - any intelligence -
Hang in there with me - I am hoping to have a complete mental recovery soon -also hoping to be able to return personally sent emails soon -

These came from Australia - Sorry Janelle but I waited several days before I bid - I am not an art glass person as you all know - so actually bought several art glass salts from the seller When I unwrapped the one on the left I fell in love - It is actually a deep cut melon shape and the cranberry is crystal clear see through - the one on the right is squatty and has a look of ribbing stemming from the inside and the richest darkest cranberry -

I use Picclick all the time to look at anything on eBay, just put Picclick USA or pickclick au etc into your search engine to find and when you open the site just put open salt or whatever on you want to look at. It will give you lots to look at, then select the one you want info on and that will open up, from there you can click on the salt if you want to and also go to the actual ebay site. It is owned by ebay and is great, I can scroll down the page to see lots of salts all at once.
The site very friendly to use

Thanks Debi -0 will give it a try tonight - Am about to pull it together and head over to see him - His son and daughter have been there most of the morning and he gets tired so I sort of kindly kicked them out and have given him a rest before I show up - When he gets tired he looses the clarity of his words and once again falls back into not being able to pull them out and speak them - This is going to be along haul but we are in it together and very positive and determined -

Some salt stuff will be a nice break - Pictures to follow - sometime - lol lol

I would write Lesley and ask for the stickers you need for the salts you got - The resale value might increase with the stickers still on them - I am sure she would send them to you - Part of the deal --

Mary: Glad to hear you in good spirits. I'm so happy Bob is doing better. My salts came from Lesley in Connecticut. I have seen the stickers in pictures of other salt lots, but they were not on mine. The description stated they had them but none showed in the pictures. I wonder if the different sellers were given the stickers to apply themselves and of course, mine got missed. They aren't really that special of salts, just a couple I wanted. So when I get around to selling off the others they won't have the stickers.

Mary, I swear it is so easy to just right click on the eBay item and select open in new window. It will pop up right over the eBay page. Then you can just close that window and your eBay page will be just as you left it. Or you can select Open in new tab and you won't leave the eBay page that way either. Just open the new tabs when you're done with the whole eBay page. That way you won't have to wait for the new page to load either.

Looking forward to seeing your new goodies!

Hi Debi - Every salt I received had a sticker on it - At first I thought they had missed them and then I found one - Extremely small clear round sticker with Berg Collection in tiny black letters circling the rim - or something like that - I think they went to a lot of trouble to make sure the stickers stated the name but did not overshadow the salt itself - Which seller did your salts come from?

As far as the eBay search - I am never in a hurry - I get upset sometimes with the length of time it takes to go back and forth - but that is so seldom - It always amazes me as to what spot in line it returns me to when I back up -

Apparently I did some heavy bidding before everything happened - Will have to get pictures and show a couple of my goodies - Okay back to house stuff - Maybe I will replace my coffee with a Pepsi and zoom around the rooms - Or maybe I will eat - Food intake - Yes - Good for mind and body - I eat now

Oh Judy - I hope they get you up and running soon and that the damage gets repaired quickly - What a grief

They are moving him out of ICU today and back to the area he was in before he decided to have an early morning event - Monday he will be transferred to Rehab and the ICU nurse said it was confirmed to be the acute rehab and the one we wanted - His speech is progressing - Not sure if he has tried to write again - and if so - what scribbles he is into this time - Did not realize that his right had has taken and abnormal twist and position - OT has already showed him how to deal with it when he eats and they will work on it more in rehab - He knows it is going to be a long journey but is confidant he will be whole at the end of it - Thanks again for your prayers and good thoughts - They are working --

I am about to go over to the hospital - Wednesday I came home to pictures of Denise's beautiful yard - Just the pictures were so calming for me - Yesterday - Kent graced me with pictures of a new salt and the shelf it was now resting on - I can still drool and covet - Sure would be nice to come home to some of your new salts - or happy salts - or salts you know will cause salivating - It's a personal thing but I am sure all would appreciate seeing pretty happy salts - Back at some point - Pray for no new surprises today - Love to all

Bob was scheduled to be moved to rehab today – but I got a call at 1:30 this morning that he had been non-responsive and had been moved to ICU – They did a test and called me back about 3:30 saying the test did not show any brain damage and they are leaning towards an oxygen problem caused by his COPD – I was able to talk to him this morning – Basically just doing it and handling it as it shows up and goes – Probably no rehab today – I have appreciated your emails and prayers – I do not like roller coasters and here I am on one of the most violent ever changing high ups and low downs one – Life can be interesting if you live through it – lol lol -- Loves and hugs and many many thanks to all

Oh Big Sis...God is surely watching over both Bob and you as this is certainly wonderful news and sounds like a good start to his recovery! Although the road ahead may be a long one, his determination to do whatever it takes will make a big difference in the success of his journey. Please tell him that we send our love and are all pulling for him!

Once again I am unable to say in mere words how much I appreciate the wishes I have read - and Prayers - Prayers are good and powerful - Do not stop them - they are slowly winning - I mustered the courage to go alone this morning only to find an empty room - Fortunately there was a nurse standing close to "his" door before I screamed - He had been moved up closer to the main nursing station - I walked in the room and there was my husbands face - the one I knew Tuesday evening when I said good night - Not the drooping old pitiful face I had kissed as I left yesterday - OMG - I wish all of you could have seen the beam on his face when he saw me - He reached out to me and as I took his hand he said "Honey I am better". He still has a long way to go and the conversation started to go down hill from there - But if he concentrates real hard and speaks slowly he can get further along in his sentences than before - Right now I have no definite idea of where he will be sleeping tonight or tomorrow night - No one seems to know - Though I think the opinion is that he will go to rehab for anywhere from a week to a month - depending on his progress - He is determined and he is going to beat this - just not sure how long it will take or the ending outcome of his speaking - He thinks it is 1989 but knew my birthday - well month and date - but surprise I was born in 1989 - I am crying too much to write any more - will chatter later - Emotions are high right now - Love you all -

Getting ready to go to the hospital this morning - Hopefully to see some improvement - but knowing he is in God's care and the hospital's - Yesterday was never ending tests - So today the doctor will have all the results and a look at Bob today - Then next step decisions can be made with a complete set of information -
I am at a loss for words to express what reading this board did for me last night - So tired and scared and I came home - Not to an empty house - but to friends - Love you all so very much - I will be back later -

I just got off the phone with Mary. She asked me if I would let you know what is happening because she is so tired. Mary said she called 911, and they were there in a few minutes taking care of Bob. He is in the hospital, and they are doing all kinds of tests now. She said she will let you know more tomorrow when they have the test results. They will start him on therapy, too. Sure hope it's they hear something good tomorrow!

Oh, Mary, prayers for you both! I had a TIA recently and couldn't say the words that were in my head. I was so frightened and I'm sure you and Bob must feel the same way. But sounds as if you got help right away and Bob will have work to do. You have been through so much and I'm sure you can weather this storm. Best wishes for better days. Love you.

He is adorable Susie - You just want to pet him..

This is where I come for prayers - Early this morning my precious Bobby woke me up - He said he was in trouble - When I looked at him I knew exactly what had happened - He has had a stroke - "Mary I am in trouble" was the last sentence he has been able to put together - It has effected his speech - So we need some prayers here - They are working on his blood pressure also - For him and also for me to be able to do what I have to do - Yesterday we were talking with the spine surgeon about my operation - This is now on the back burner - At least he is in no pain - Just frustrated because he starts to talk and for some reason the word work is about all he can say with ease and once he has said it - That is all he can say - We will take any minute - any form of prayers

  Jeffery Evans auction yesterday had a covered blue Lacy sell for $21,060.00. Who has that kind of money? There were other pieces sold for ~$500.00, $700.00, $800.00. A lot sold for $81.90. Crazy. Beautiful salts but my God.

I reorganized the USA catalogs page in the reference section and added a couple new companies. Bellaire Goblet page shows the turtle salt. The copy was very poor and the text under the items did not show up. Royal Glass was added. The catalog page there shows when the company was already a part of the National Glass combine. Several Greensburg salts show on the Royal page so it appears molds were transferred to Royal after the Greensburg factory no longer existed. Other new additions to some other companies that were already there like Nickel Plate and O'Hara.

There's a new H&J page up to be worked on. Please participate. Some of these might be hard to find.

VERY simple solution. I never click to directly open an item on eBay. Instead of left clicking the mouse, RIGHT CLICK and select either Open in New Tab, or Open in New Window. If you select Tab, you can just go through the entire eBay page and then open the other tabs. I usually switch eBay to the next page and look at the other tabs so I don't have to wait while eBay loads. If you select New Window it will open immediately over the eBay page. Whatever you pick is still faster than using the back button.

Hi Don - Happens to me also - Sometimes if I just sit and wait for a bit it will bring it back down to where I was - and then sometimes it does the opposite and brings me back down about 3 or 4 auctions below where I was looking - No rhyme or reason to it - If one of our Computer Friendlier Peoples is reading - I am with Don HELP to ease our frustrations needed --

Hi All, I've just spent "a LOT of time" going through 6 pages of "open salts" on EBAY!(to check the Berg Salts) WHY does Ebay have to send you to the beginning of each page, every time you click on a Salt to read about it!! Sometimes I'm near the end of a page, and it sends me back to the start!! It DRIVES ME CRAZY!! Is there a way around this? Thanks for ANY HELP on this! Don

Hi Harold & welcome!
Mary is pretty much right on target! I took a quick look through “Glass Hen on Nest Covered Dishes, Identification & Value Guide” by Shirley Smith. I didn’t find any that were classified as a “master” salt in the book. The smallest produced by any given company, both American & Foreign, all seem to be called “chick” salts, or chick on nest salts, and range in size with a top rim of the base measurement of 2-3/8” to 3” in length. Once they exceed the 3” length measurement the book then refers to them as a “hen dish”. For example: L.E. Smith produced what they call their “chick salt” measuring 2-3/8” x 1-7/8” (base) & 2” x 1-1/2” (top). They also produced what they call their “3” Hen #105” measuring 3-3/8” x 2-1/2” (base) & 3” x 2-1/16” (top). Westmoreland also made two with similar measurements to Smith’s and they also call the smaller one a “chick salt” and the larger a “hen dish”. This may just be the terminology the author chose to use and not necessarily what the company itself called their covered dishes. You would need to find a company’s old catalog page with the description of their larger version to see if they ever classified it as a “Master” salt. As for your question…“Were the large Hen on Nests used as a Master Salt?”… I don’t see any reason why they couldn’t be. Their measurements are not that out of line with many companies master/table sized salts. Hope this helps!

Hi Harold and welcome to the board - I am not the hen on nest expert but I do not believe any of the hen on nest pieces - other than the small ones - were considered a type of salt - Sellers refer to the larger ones as master salts sometimes - but I am pretty sure they all were much too large for salt service - Hopefully someone else will either confirm my suspicion or correct it -

I always put them off as long as I can, too, but when THEY decide it's time they just do it - no matter what you are in the middle of.
