Very nice Nancy V. If you can get a decent picture of the letters maybe we can help research it. Blown up pictures are much better than a magnifying glass.

Mystery salt with applied blue dots. About 2" wide, 1" tall. There may be 3 initials etched on the base, but they are so small and scratchy that I can't read them.

The photo was taken in late afternoon and the blue dots are a more intense color than shown, very pretty. The body is very clear with a polished base, wear to the rim it sits on. Any help about origin appreciated. I seldom see any interesting salts when I shop antique malls now.

I've been AWOL for two weeks while my sister was visiting. We shopped antique malls and shops every day except the last one she was here and needed to pack. We bought mostly jewelry, which amuses both of us. I did find one salt, round crystal with blue applied dots, 8 I think. I'll post a picture when I get one to see if anyone has any ideas about origin.

Howdy Carolyn ...
The Bee Marks I posted here were so folks could see the Bee marks. The smallest Delta (AKA Paneled Thristle, Canadian Thistle) salt is not marked. My information indicates a salt this size with the Bee mark is scarce. And this smallest salt was also manufactured by Jefferson Glass (Canada Pattern No. 220) circa 1920. The mark here in clear is on a Higbee Madora AKA Arrowhead salt that I have in my collection. Now, the mark on the cobalt salt is on the inside bottom of the salt. This mark has pointed wings and I believe is the third mark that L.G. Wright used at this point of time. I don't have a piece with the second mark that Wright used.

To take a look at a drawing of the three marks go to References here on this site and check Ed Bowman's info on L.G.Wright. Ed had a good illustration and explanation.

I'm always a work in progress and glad to have input from other collectors. Keep up the research and pass it on.

Hi Judy in Texas,

I happened to notice that you posted a picture of a Higbee Bee Mark and called it a L.G. Wright Bee Mark. I think I can see the H in one wing, the I in the Bee, and the G in the other wing. Is is possible that L.G. Wright bought the Higbee mold and didn't remove the Bee? To my knowledge Higbee did not mark many of their salts, though they marked larger pieces. Some salts they made can be found both ways - some with and some without the bee in the middle of the bowl.

Judy: Glad you were able to ID something from the EAPGS website. The website is free to all. You don't have to be a paid member to join the Facebook page either. Paid membership gets you the newsletter and access to the Members Only portion on the website. That has contact info for every member and all past newsletters. It's fascinating to read those. I learned a lot, and not just about glass. Also great to have direct access to some book authors!

This is not, repeat NOT, the website associated with DoRi (remember her?) that she was editor of but mistakes were never corrected. That one you had to pay for to see. This is different, the pictures in the pattern files are added to daily. They come directly from what people post on the Facebook page. Judy, you should send them pictures of your EAPG salts. They are lacking in that area.

Debi the images from EAPGS are exactly what I have. It is the 3 1/2" bowl from a berry set. Now I'm going to add it to my Pattern Glass Master Salts with a description as a berry bowl that could be used as a salt. I had a membership to EAPGS some years back...I may have to take another look at buying another. As soon as I can get the photo area and equipment back together; I'll post a picture here. This is a beautiful pattern. Thanks for the information.

It was on the EAPGS Facebook site and I didn't see it until discussion was closed so I couldn't add my 2 cents.

Judy: This link is for the Early American Pattern Glass Society website for pattern ID. Luckily, they showed Yoke and Circle and that the OMN is ERA. I don't know if there's a salt in this pattern or not. If so, it must be a master.

http://www.eapgs.org/patterns/

Here's the free website if anyone is interested. You can search by company or pattern name or even motifs.

Sorry I missed your special day Susie. Hope you had a great one. I slept all day. They are widening I-75 through Troy to four lanes each direction and are demolishing the Wattles Road bridge over it to make that bigger too. Even though I-75 is closed, for some reason they are doing it at night. The thuds are house shaking some times. Maybe they are having to make up time for all the rainy days we've had.

Susie, love the iris! We have some but they are not blooming yet. Lynda, I love all the flowers you mentioned, also. Right now, we have violets and lily of the valley outside. I used to love to pick big bunches of them, but neither Don nor I can do that anymore. Speaking of Don, he’s 87 now, but able to get around and drive short distances. Took us 20 minutes to get me off the floor when I fell. We do have an alarm system to call for help, but we chose to do it ourselves. Not good, I know, but pride is powerful.

Had a bad fall in the house two days ago. Lucky I didn’t break anything, but I’m finding it very painful to walk from the couch to the bathroom. Was carrying washed clothes and foot got caught in a piece hanging down. Pretty bruised from my shoulder to hip, just where I have bone loss and pain anyway. So frustrated!

I certainly don't mind rereading info on salts. Those that don't want to, can just skip it. I've spoken to a number of people who just come in to read what we say and see the different salts. There are new people coming to check us out all the time. They may have never seen what was posted before. This site is becoming more and more famous.

Thanks for all the information Judy. I know you do an awful lot of research for your own collection. I hope whoever is interested in it takes notes or adds it to their own documentation so the same issues don't come up year after year. Personally, I only have one round cobalt St. Clair with JFK inside so I don't need all the measurement comparisons. But for those who have multiples and noticed the slightly different sizes, it surely would benefit them to take notes now.

OK, now you guys are showing some hobnail salts by other companies that can be identified. They are not associated with the unknown square hobnail with round opening. The small square and round could be by Beatty and the large square with a square opening is probably by Columbia. There are catalog images of those salts. Columbia made the "double eye" hobnail.

Judy: Thanks for the input on quartz countertops. I guess once I get really serious about it all, I'll have to check on local prices. Countertop space was always such a big deal that we made sure we had a lot of it from when we remodeled the kitchen when we first moved in. The island is 8 x 3 feet alone. Then the run on one wall is about 11 feet from the fridge to the corner. They would probably have to join it where it turns the corner to the stove another foot long. There's two other countertops over cabinets, one is 3 feet long and the other is 2 feet long. That's a heck of lot of countertop to replace and I know once the cost of new laminate is compared to quartz it would be no contest with Larry. They do make amazing laminates these days with no black lines on the edges so it looks like solid surface. The flooring is another story. I just don't like the look of so much wood on the kitchen floor so it has to be linoleum of some type. Probably 12" x 12" tiles again because the floor is too wide for one piece. It would have to be seamed together because of the size and also the island too. And it's attached to the laundry room. I think the one piece type is out of the question because it would end up many pieces.

I'm happy for you that you are coming to end of your water damage nightmare. I was always under the impression that the ground in Texas was rock hard and that's why there are so few basements. I heard or read that somewhere a long time ago but maybe it's just in a certain part of the state.

Debi I just completed the redo on the kitchen after the water damage from the slab leak last year. I had QUARTZ installed on the counters and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. It is so easy to clean and now days it comes in more color choices than it did years ago. I have black on black with small reflective specks in it.

I'm also almost finished with replacing all the carpeting and old laminate flooring with a new "Outlast" Pergo laminate floor. It is supposed to be water proof.

The plumbers are coming today to check the new pipes and talk to me about replacing the hot water heater. The soil here is EXPANSIVE ... It swells when wet and compacts when dry. This action moves foundations up, down and tilts them. I have a Post-Tension slab with cables instead of rebar for reinforcement. The plumbers can't drill or break into the slab to fix leaks. They had to run new pipes through the attic and down through the walls. The holes in the walls are repaired and now I have painting to go...Then I hope to be able to buy salts again.

Mary: Did you recently rob a bank? Those are gorgeous Daums and I am so envious. I guess at this point I would rather update the house a bit and forego the expensive salts. It's a choice, can't do both. Speaking of remodeling, has anyone had any new countertops recently? We've had the same white laminate for nearly 30 years now. I'd love to upgrade to a quartz or solid of some type, but don't necessarily want any pattern. Larry uses the island for his pictures and the plain white is great for that. Maybe a lighter gray would be OK too. Also need a new floor in the kitchen and can't replace my beautiful cobalt floor tiles because they just don't make those colors any more. I'll have to go with a duller gray I suppose. Yuck! But not that many color choices and I don't want wood in the kitchen. So many shades of gray and white and off white, but no real colors any more. Boring!

   Judy, Judy, Judy, I am so tickled with your info. So rare that I have any info on a salt. I got a round hobnail from the Bergs and in it was a label 'John Kimble.' Debi feels Kimble bought molds from other companies. Of which, knowing her, she's right. So, are we back to wondering who the original co. was? These are not hard to find. You would think we could figure this out. It would be so fun to figure this one out.

I have a sad story... Did a little antiquing Friday; found several little treasures. I was putting them in my cabinet yesterday and while my back was turned one of my kitties got one of my finds out of the bag and batted it off of the table where it shattered on the wood floor. Well I wasn't too upset because it was one that I'd paid very little for and I thought that it was probably a reproduction-little green pedestal individual salt. NOT!!!! I was looking through the Compendium to see if I could identify another of my finds and low and behold there the little green guy was, on page 265. An apple green Tree Of Life individual; thought my head was going to explode!!! I got it out of the trash and I'm going to try and glue it back together. I know it won't be worth anything but the crazy DEAL that I had stumbled on reminded me of my daddy who had collected open salts too and he LIVED for deals. I didn't kill my Leo kitty and he told me he was sorry later by sitting on my lap watching me play a game on my Kindle:)

Thank you Nancy D. It was a small picture but still looks pretty good enlarged. I know there's still a purple bulldog out there somewhere but not sure about any others.

Lynda: Kemple was pretty much a company that copied or used molds bought from companies going out of business. The round one was (I think) St. Clair Glass. It's the type found with JFK, an elk, and maybe some other images inside. I don't think Kemple made the square hobnail ones. I'm still pretty convinced the square ones are from about the 1880s because of the colors but just can't pin it down to which company. Columbia Glass Co. had a master size square hobnail salt but it's different.

   I took a look at the posted animals. Beautiful job as usual Debi. The colored animals are so nice but the clear etched really show their features beautifully.
   I also saw the square hobnail that arn't Fenton. I have always thought that they were 1920s ashtrays. There are round ones too. I got this one from the Berg collection. It says made by John E Kemple glassworks. Kenova, W Vo. ??? My eyes are not so good. Needs cleaning. Maybe the origin of all the unknown hobnails.

I suppose the reason I hate taking pictures and editing them is because I do it daily already with Larry's pictures.

With this set of animals we should put together as many of them that we have in all the colors we have and I can put them on the Odds and Ends page on the website. Does anyone know the origin of them? They might be Czech glass but that's just a guess.

   These frosted animals just get more and more beautiful. I really like them all. The plain frosted is beautiful but the colored frosted, they take my breath away. I dearly love and cherish glass. These make me so want to start a hunt for alllllll of these. Lololololol...one can dream.
   Lolololol, Susie P, why am I not surprised you have these.
   Debi, I still want to see your frosted clears. I love Mary's bulldog. His face is great.

Thanks Nancy - My heart goes out to poor Dexter - Hope he gets extra treats when his mommy adorns him -

Just realized I have the bull dog - but he is just frosted - Bad picture but only one I had -
