As far as I know, Brenda McCloud still buys and sells salts.

Lynda, I love the Satsuma salts too. I found a large group of matching pairs in a huge Ft. Worth antique mall, a dozen about 2 1/2 inch with the tiny salts, about an inch wide to match each one. I kept one pair, gave a pair to my sister and sold all the others, mostly on this site. Many in the salt collecting community bought them. I still have my pair.

  Debi, I think you should have access it was opened by no one special in a bad way I believe. It was opened by the lady you bought Berg salts from or by the lady who is a teacher and her husband had a horible accident. Broke his back or something.

I don't have seller pages on the website any more. They became very stale with no changes for long periods of time so I'm sure no one was looking any more. If there is a Facebook page for selling salts I suggest people try that. I don't have access so I don't know if it gets many results or not.

   There use to be a sale section on this site but I'm not sure that's still up. There is a sell and trade section on facebook. When Debi pops in she'll be able to tell you if her for sale is still going. No matter what you need pictures and a way for people to identify the ones they want. You probably could post single pictures right here. Totally up to Debi as this is her site. I'm wicked excited as Master/Tables salts are my joy. Wait and see what Debi says if you can.

   Hummm, now there's a good point. You just may be right. The salt by itself resembles H & J #3655, but that has a rope bottom. Someone said something about a coin...something. I was going to look it up but forgot. It was coin spot glass but I looked it up and it's a lot of Fenton cut to color glass. So still s mystery. But I like it.

Lynda: Sorry I don't know anything about this piece. It does strike me odd that the bottom is backwards as you see through the glass. I think you mean the the top edge is ground down. That always makes me look more critically at the piece. I have seen many pieces of glass where it's clear that it was cut down from something else. But because this has a top, I don't know what to think about it.

   Thank you Nancy V. I am nuts for those glass salts with silver attached. Mary uses a drummil to help her clean her silver. That's one fantastic idea. My hands have big time arthritis, so cleaning silver was not a thrill or done well. Not worth the effort but with a drummil..... such a good idea.

About collectible prices, yes, Don. I still see some outrageous prices on line and in malls. Some sellers haven't changed prices in ages.

Lynda, whatever that bird salt is, it's the prettiest I've seen of that type. I like seeing people's new additions, though I've pretty much stopped buying.

Linda, I have a match holder like yours with a cat on it. I love it even though it isn't technically a salt. I found it in a little old flea market marked $3.00. When I checked out, there was a discount, so I think this may be my cheapest buy at about $2.40. I see one cat stencil on a different piece in my reprinted Monroe catalog so I think the cat may be quite rare.

Jane: Your salt doesn't really fit Lacy criteria without stippling although a few have sneaked into Neal. There were also countless salts made in foreign countries so I guess I'd have to say to check all the foreign catalogs. Never know, you might find it. I found several of mine in foreign catalogs I never thought I'd ever know the maker of.

Lynda daylight is the best lighting for your work. I've been using daylight bulbs for some time now. I had the pleasure of working with professional photographers for several years and saw how they staged and lighted what they called Table Shots. I use a large gray photo background that I tape to a wall and let it curve onto the top of a table. In front of the table I place a light at about a 45 degree angle on each side of the salt -- and -- about a foot or so above it. The objective is to flush the shadows by hitting the salt at several opposing angles. Depending of the light it may be good to filter the light from the light fixtures. You can do this by letting the light go through a piece of translucent paper or turning the direct light away from the salt and bouncing the light off a piece of white paper. Bouncing the light will help avoid Hot Spots.

I hope to get back into photo shape as soon asa I get the new computer running with the software I need.

Hope this helps

Lynda, I hope you didn't waste any money buying a picture set up box. I take my pictures with two pieces of plain white paper curved upward. (I use double paper so the dark wood does show through a single sheet.) I don't go for no shadows at all, that's nearly impossible. You're pictures are clear enough, I just needed a profile picture of the clear salt.

I added the information pages for H&J 2977 and 2979 now but for some reason the pictures on the main page are reflecting the new ones I uploaded. I remember the last time I added one it took forever for the new picture to show up. Used to be that it was instantaneous that new pictures showed up. Doesn't make any sense that the info pages were seen immediately but not pictures. If it doesn't correct soon I guess I'll have to submit a problem ticket. That's always fun to deal with.

Lynda, if you can, I'd prefer a profile picture where you can see the stem more clearly. I guess if you're taking pictures with a phone you have to set it on the table to get a complete profile. Just prop up the white paper behind it with a glass or something so it's still a clean background.

height of this salt: 1 5/8"

There is a slight bulge in the bottom of the stem where it joins the base. The glass in the bowl is thin at the top rim and thicker toward the bottom of the bowl. It could be hand-blown, except that I don't find a pontil mark.

These types of salts are very frustrating to me. They all look similar but none exactly alike. Are they all just slightly different because they are blown? Are those little bumps in the stem wafers that connect the bowl to the stem? Some look larger than others. I can't tell if Carolyn's salt is really H&J 2977 or not. I had hoped if we found the exact etched design we wold at least know it was the same as in H&J, even if we still didn't know who made the darn thing. Looks like 2977 is plain, not etched. Carolyn, I have saved your pictures and will compare to Lynda's pictures when she posts them. Could you please give me a top diameter, base diameter and the height of this salt? And thank you!

I can get the pictures of both of them if you like. I can also edit pictures for you if you want. I did them for Joan for her article on the bird with berry salts. You really have to know about makers of millefiore glass in order to write a factual article. If you are just going to do a picture article then no problem. I collected millefiori glass before I collected salts and still have it all. There are many different types. Some is old, some is not, some by famous artists and some not. Some is worth a lot and others are more recent imports. But I still could not tell you what is what.

Linda, I am certainly no expert, but I would say your salts are the older ones, simply from watching and looking at millefiori ones for a long while. I have nearly the same vase /toothpick that I class as a salt as well. There is a definite different feel to the glass, the way the canes have been melted etc. I saw a couple of ones I believe were relatively new, they were just too precisely made etc. a lot of millefiori now just made for the tourist market. This is another of mine

Lynda: Yes, the salts are Georg Jensen BLOSSOM pattern #2A. The spoons are marked #110. They go with different salt, one that is all silver and resembles a spoon itself. But they will have to do for now. Regarding your salts, they might even be foreign. I have no idea, just made the comment that Bakewell, Pears had some similar ones. Your salts are quite early and we have very few catalogs from that far back.

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, ours was quiet but nice. Debi, I don’t think the 20085 was metal as Burtles and Tate only made glass, at least I have never seen anything metal by them. By the the description, it sounds like the flower holder was a bit like a double salt with handle. The three swans I have would not fit in round holder, as the base and bottom of the swans are oval.. as to the registration numbers being consecutive, I think they just had two pieces that they did at the same time. I was in contact with a group a long time ago about a B & T triangle flower holder that they helped me out with. Even sent a copy of the original registered design. Will see if I can find them to check.

Janelle: So after seeing the entry in the book, do you think the holder was made for the swan too? My guess is that it might have been silver plated and looked horrible once it tarnished pitted so people got rid of the holders and kept the swans.

Hi Debi,
I do have that book. It has been a wealth of information. I cannot find a photo anywhere of 20085. I guess we will never know unless we can see them. I hate a mystery.
23291
Debi RaitzPerson was signed in when posted

Janelle: The book title is "The Identification of English Pressed Glass" by Jenny Thompson. It also has the years 1842-1908 on the cover. The reason I think the holder is specifically for the swan is because the book lists the registration numbers as 20085/6. Both are dated January 8, 1885. Then it says "85 Design for glass flower holder or bracket" and "86 Design for glass flower holder (swan)". Pretty much makes me think they go together when worded that way. The book was inexpensive and for someone like you who likes researching the reg. nos. ... you would like it. I bought it along with the book "The Peacock and the Lions", a book on Davidson, Greener and Sowerby glass. Got both for under $20. I think my library is growing more than my collection at this point. Used to be a time when I'd rather spend $30 on salts rather than a book. Now that there are online used bookstores, they are pretty inexpensive.

07:36 PM ET (US)
Debi, either 20085 was not popular or very little of the holder was produced. I also do not think they would be for the swans, the swans I have do not have round bases, so would be very hard to sit one in the holder. Maybe just something they made at the same time as the registered the swans. Either way I cannot find a photo or drawing.

Did any of you ever get an eBay offer for an item you had in your watch list? I've been watching a pair of Blossom pattern Georg Jensen table salts (with blue enamel interiors) for some time. I was hoping the seller would eventually split the pair and hopefully I could afford one of them. The pair has been listed at $1075 and I got a sale price of $600 for the pair. The price was not a markdown on the auction. If you went to the auction page it still showed full price but then my offer popped up on the screen. I guess you had to have it in your watch list. I have no idea how many other people may have been watching, but I had to jump on it. Hopefully I can sell the other. They are gorgeous and this is the least amount I've ever seen one. I will continue to put nice items in my watch list. Never know what might come along.

It sure would be interesting to see what that holder or bracket looks like. I don't know if I can find any illustrations for English regisitration numbers but I'm going to try.

Also see some familiar art glass salts attributed to Sowerby.

Thanks Mary. Which one are you on the hunt for? I know there's a much more rare blue with pink spongeware, but I've only ever seen a picture or two so I don't know if I'd be able to afford it if one did become available. I still watch continuously for an English Cornishware master salt too.

As far as pictures for salts on other pages of H&J, I have saved many I've come across so I'd be happy to accept yours as well. You could probably provide many of them at the beginning of H&J, like the Tiffany and Steuben salts. You send them, I'll save them. I also have a notebook page where I have saved the measurements (if they were provided on eBay) for future use.

I would help with the H&J project but I do not have many of the individual clear ones left and if I remember correctly the ones I do have were already covered. I could send you pictures of ones I have on other pages and I guess you could save them to use later.

This is my new baby. I have always wanted one of these pottery spongeware master salts. This one is perfect. Not even the tiniest of nicks or rough spots on the rim! Took many years for the right one to come along and I passed on others that had chips or repairs.

Don: Back in January was when I added the last of my 10 Georg Jensen salts with blue interiors. That was quite a buying spree over a year so I didn't really have the yearning for anything else for some time. I don't even search eBay any more. I have a few select categories to receive daily eBay emails for new listings and that's how I found this one. Guess I can delete the spongeware search now. I am very happy with this one.

Merry Christmas everyone!

  Debi, I will openly admit to laziness. Having the kids here after school affected my organization. Nadia and Morgan did homework at the table I use to get pictures of the salts. They no longer come here after school. The other set of twins come and they do'nt have homework. It's all done in school. So now I can concintrate. I'll do it on my own if I have to. I might be able to cry to Jan. She loves me and might take pity. Debi, the H and J project is the greatest undertaking. The beauty in the pages is beyond words to me. I have a friend, Beverly, who is pretty good at navigating your resources. She might help me with the hard part... identification and information. I struggle with that and she's crackerjack. I do realize you Debi, are beyond knowledgable, but you can burn out if I over use you. I would love to just take the pictures and let you put in the info but that's unfair of me. See... lazy. Strangely, I'm starting to like this research thing. Use to hate it but it's getting kinda interesting.
  I will get the little pedestal done. She's on my bar. Christmas has me pulling my hair out.

  MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL. may you all have joy, love and happiness.

My only goal with the website was to help with identification. Wish I could get more done but the help with having the salts and taking pictures and measurements doesn't seem to be there any more. It is rather boring I guess, but seeing another finished H&J page was very gratifying. Speaking of the H&J pages, don't forget you have that one pedestal on the last page I need pictures of. I think it was #2979.

This holly salt is part of a set of Lenox Beleek that come from my aunt. All the salts in the set have different flowers on them

   Hey Don. I am so sorry for the mix up. My grandchildren take little sticky paper and write their initials on it so when I drop dead they have their salts all picked out. I have a few Fenton too. I love them.

I'm not sure if this one is a salt or a toothpick Pilgrim cased glass. Its the right size to be either

Hi Lynda, Your # 23234(Salts-Nut Cups) are all Fenton. Maybe you knew that, but the "M" confused me. I have around a dozen different examples(as a Fenton Collector too!) Maybe after the Holidays, I'll get them pictured, so I can show you!

 A lady on F B offered to sell me a witch salt from a convention and now she's not answering me. Anyone have an extra? Maybe a trade?
