It's going to take Terry 2 or 3 days to get all the Pics ready.
We haven't shipped much lately but Terry was at the Post Office checking on rates - WOW !!!
The ones of you that ship and get salts thru the mail have any suggestions to help with the shipping costs?

Donna Crider and I have been communicating and she and Terry have decided to have their salts on a selling page and the link will be provided right here! Give us some time to get her page ready and then they will be available for sale right here.

The mica is embedded under a thin layer of clear glass - this Black Spangle against the White Milk glass interior casing is really nice

We did away with the "points" that were on out first kiln salts the tops now are "scallops and Ruffles"
They also have a "bowl" at the bottom under the Scallops.
Sometime ago the "monthly" salt was Halloween colors --- so why not ?

OK -- we're back - we will try to answer some of the posts in order.
Nancy, on your #23009, we don't have any of those firsts ones left (we didn't make that many to start with).
Linda H. -- your #23010, this is the lower part of a toothpick holder that was real popular for us. It looks like it's on an amber based glass and we don't really remember making that combination of colors. It's possible it's one of 4 or 5 experimentals; it's also possible that if there was a big air bubble that would have been the top of the toothpick holder, Terry might have finished it down to salt size and, if this is what happened, it's probably one of a kind.
The "yellow" salt at #23032 looks like our Vaseline - we think it was around 2005 that we were able to get our hands on some uranium - if you put it under a good black light, it should glow like crazy!
Mary, unless your toothpick is really an early one, there should be "eyes" indented on the "head" of the snake.
We will be back in a little bit and post some pic's of the salts we are making now.

STOOOOPED pictures ..........

Last to show before I do anymore as I am starved to death and now that I know I am good to go in the swallowing department me gonna eat and big bites too ---

The Crider that came with the last batch ... The white tube going around the body of the toothpick is absolutely amazing... I do hope to get in touch with Donna soon and hope to have her join us... OMG if she does, we might actually have an article going here rather than just a super special show and tell

I got interrupted and so this is after I have had lunch .. Hey at least I came back and followed through... Functioning day !!!

Does anyone have one or all of these brass that mimic the silver with blue glass? I could not believe it when I saw these... They are here and a bit smaller in height than the original ones, but actually rather charming in a way...

Jane, I am so sorry I did not call, but I did not get home until almost 6:30. I saw my doctor and he sent me over to the osteo doc. I had no appointment and he is apparently one of the best and booked solid so squeezing me in was almost a two hour wait. But worth it to get peace of mind...

I had a spontaneous dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint which allowed the bony arthritic growth to move front and center. It is fortunately headed outward and not in towards my throat. Not much they can do, so I just has a bump... Doctor said it happens with age and more prominent in women.
With knowledge and peace of mind AND a hell of a long two days, I slept 8 hours straight. I have not done that in months....

So I am good to go until the next uncommon or strange happening my body wants to show me.... Love you all dearly and appreciate your support and prayers past, present and most surely future .....

Thank you. I am not afraid of what the heck it is, I am a bit uncertain about how they are going to get rid of it. It has to go as it is growing. I don't need it trying to take over much more space because then my ass-sophy-gas would have to be pushed out of the way. Now I have wanted to loose some weight, but not by NOT eating and I guess breathing too.... :)
Oh Ladies, I need for my mountain to get a little shorter and the boulder I keep having to push up it, to become a basketball..... I love you all very much and appreciate your always being there for me, but is time for that to slow down a bit..... Got to get back to laughter, and I shall....

Need a blurb from you Cathy about your salts and Lynda I think I am still missing one from you but will have to go back..
Debi can I pull the picture you posted with the information given??? I would love to get Donna to join in and give us some insights on technique, branching out into different styles and techniques etc, but I do not know how to get in touch with her.. Do you have and email??? Thanks everyone.. I will start working on this...
Oh and if you have any prayers left, I am seeing the doctor tomorrow about a large lump under the skin at the base of my throat.... Probably just too many Pepsi's but what the heck, I was starting to have some free time.... Now I will have some more doctor time... It just never stops....

Mary: You need to get Donna Crider to take some pictures of their personal collection of Crider salts. I took a few pictures when I was there but they are not good. This is one of them. I only have about 7 Crider salts, 2 of them being the convention salt and MOSS salt but I will get a good picture to you of the others. When is the next issue? Don't remember any comments on the last one so I don't know when they come out.

Lynda: Maybe I misunderstood at the time, but I thought the lime green color in that shape was exclusive to the MOSS 15th Anniversary salt. It is shown on the website under Collections>Commemorative Salts. Lynda, look at the marking on yours with a magnifying glass or take a picture of the bottom. You can see everything so much better in a large picture.

2010 is about the time we found out the story that Criders were no longer making glass was completely false. I ordered the pale pink and a couple other colors and sold them for about $40 each. The interest in Crider salts has never gone away. The interest in paying $75 or more for them has gone away.

LINDA - I am with JANE - there are no new ones with the footsies - some may have been re-enameled but no new productions. Your pink color is quite desirable and the fact that it looks like your feet do not have major problems is also nice. The feet were the weakest point with them. Most have been flattened and cracked. I have a black one the previous owner loved so much the removed the squished feet and had new skinny models applied - I will see if I can find the picture. Yours is old.
JANE - I did not know about the new ones, will have to keep a look out, thanks for sharing that one!!
After I typed everything I looking before I hung up and there it was in The Battersea folder, how strange is that. I getting silly because I am tired so I go bed --- Good night and/or good morning....

Hi---
LYNDA - Please send them to me directly and a bit of words about your collections, what you like the most, what you are still looking for... basically what you have posted here.....

DONNA - I wasn't buying what she was saying and nothing looked much like what you two have produced over the years. So I appreciated your confirmation on that issue. Might I use what you have posted here in the article in the newsletter.... Or anything else you would like to share... I mean it is about only Crider salts and would be so special if you were on board with us. Maybe even a couple of pictures of the newer ones you have - I think Jane was telling me Etsy will not take PayPal anymore and have their own type of payment. I think that has shied quite a few people off. Even with their fees, I still think eBay is best. Of course if you are close to a club meeting, I am sure members would love to buy direct. I know I would but I am stuck out here all alone in Sandy Eggo. Thanks for chiming in here...............

LINDA - Thanks for the pictures and the measurements, any chance I could get some personal insights and comments to go with ????

NANCY - can you send me your pictures direct also.... Glad to see you join us

Hello Donna, its great to hear from you. the Open Salts page on Facebook has a buy & sell page. But those of us who are "Crider Crazy" - Won't Terry love that?!!- would maybe like buy directly from you. I personally would like to find a jack in a pulpit one. I just bought a heart shaped one from Al Diamond, it's not marked. He also was selling a book, but I didn't get a chance to look at it. And, could you tell me about this one, it's kind of an odd color!

  Hi Donna, As you can see, I'm a Cridaholic. I am an old glass girl. Rarely buy new or vintage salts. But.....there is always a but... Salts from conventions, clubs,and Criders have caught my heart. I dearly love your salts. I consider them a piece of art. I look forward to seeing what you're doing now. Thank you for giving us some of your history. Very interesting and nice to know. As far as a signature..... I can recognize a Crider salt a mile away. Signature or no signature.
  I've bought from Etsy with no problems. Actually the people had been quite pleasant. I've also bought off facebook with no problem. It has a market place where all kinds of stuff is sold. My facebook experience is over all good but I limit it to my family and salt friends. The only trouble I've had is talking politics.....then you get the crazies. I have learned to just block them. Looking forward to seeing your new work.

Hi, Donna, so glad you posted and explained the work you and Terry have done. I met you when Terry gave a talk at an OSCAR meeting. He explained the high cost of running the furnace and showed examples of his works. I have one of the original Conference salts from the first one at Williamsburg. I also bought 2 of your latest work, which I will show. As far as ETSY, I have only had very positive experiences, but I check out comments of vendors before buying. I have bought salts as well as a rhinestone belt for a lace dress. All went well. If you message the vendors and ask for different methods of paying, I have had wonderful responses.

Hi,
We are going to highjack the board for a little bit.
The e-bay lady that said her father worked with us is way off base.
It's always been just Terry and I - when we first started I had my own glass bench and there are some small paperweights around with my signature and date.
On most of our work Terry's time was mostly at the glory hole and the glass bench.
I was working in the molten glass furnaces more than he was.
There was lots of times that we would have 2 or 3 weeks work made and shut the furnaces off to save propane and then do all the grinding and then all the signing sometimes 1-2 o'clock in the wee hours of the morning -so with that much work piled up its possible apiece would slip by and not get signed.
The signature from the engraver is actually a white "scratch" - so on white milk glass it can be hard to see - if you get a bit of moisture on your finger and wipe across the bottom it will help to see.
We are still making a few salts - we haven't sold any but want to get started.
Does anyone have and comments (good or bad) about etsy ?
The lady at out local antique mall says there is lots of glass sold on face book.
Does anyone know anything about that ?
Several years ago some of the things we heard from our grand daughters about face book we decided we didn't want any part of it.
We are waiting for a battery for our camera- we will post a couple of examples of what we are doing now.

This is the signature. It's a pretty salt, but like I said you won't mistake it for an old one. It says "Designed by Halcyon Days, London, Made in England. In the center is "Bilston and Battersea Enamels.

Susie, Regarding your post about the three frog salt, it was made by the same artist as the convention salt that year and was a special order. I have one, broke down and spent the price requested and had the salt sent to me after the convention. The froggies make me smile. I think I paid $75.

Mary there's still a lot of examples for me to find.I won't have any available cash for a while, tho. I'll send a email as soon as I get recovered a little more. I'm trying to get my new ones indexed and word crashes after almost every entry. I think I'm ready for a different program

Well Ladies, you both did quite well..... And Linda, I will remind you to stay away from my eBay as it is The Mary collection slowly being sold off... I know there aren't any salts you would want as it appears by your picture you have covered every area of our open salt collecting.
Susie, I can't help you with the signed one but I think the bowl is from one of the earlier conventions and the Stengil (?) style one is from a more recent. You should be able to find them in Debi's Convention Salt showing. I have found a couple of salts that are similar to our actual convention salts, that were a prototype not chosen. I know I have one from our San Francisco convention and a couple others, will have to get pictures.... Personally, and don't tell anyone, I think some of the unchosen ones were better than the picked ones....

Linda, Lynda, Susie and anyone else that wants to join in the fun... Please send your pictures to me along with whatever you are willing to write. Why you like Crider salts, if you have multiples which one is your favorite, are you strictly into salts only.... Just some suggestions to get you thinking. I think I will call the article Why I like ..... and it can then be changed each issue ...
Debi, you have any Criders left, please come play with us it would be nice because I do believe you have either met them or are internet friends... Your input would be marvelous...

Love, love, love the two in the front, maybe a bit more lovin' on the blue..... and then again..

So I am thinking and you know that can be hazardous to all of you.... Why can't I submit a non-article to the newsletter. I know that half of the editors has already given approval.... Anyway I think that once in a while we should just do pictures of our salts and even perhaps other smalls that match the category. With each person submitting the pictures of their salts and just a few words, or as many as you want, about the salts, what you like about them or anything you want. We could do our first one on our Crider salts. I would need mostly single pictures though a bunching of no more than two or three and on a light to white background. If you are talkative, really cool and if you are not, Hey "These are mine." works just fine.
Anyone or five or six (lurkers invited) want to get us started on our first non-information - just fun and beauty article/page fillers.... I think it would be great and when they see the first one we did, we just might get more participation. Okay I go talk to Kent so some of you better want to play along on this one Susie and Lynda..... Anyone else.

Well Linda right now I am on a Crider run.... I did not take the time to see what other pieces he did and the different styling in the glass. I will have to post the one I was most interested in that was in the last batch I just got. Oh and I found my pink heart. I was so afraid I had lost it, given it away or as usual sold it. Pink heart sitting right there in front and center on the pink salt shelf... I love the DUH in me.. Does anyone know if Mr. Crider is still producing any glass pieces???
I am so glad that you and Susie actually found some salts at an antique store, what a concept. Good for both of you and personally I would plan to open a bag or box in the morning and then one in the evening. And that my friend would last one day and the next day..... empty boxes and bags, wrappings and tape all over the floor before I would have my first cup of coffee... Have fun however you do it..
And speaking of eBay, O have to go continue to wrap, must go to the post office again today, I have done quite well and they are going out of here hot and heavy..... Chatter later when I can take another break from bubble. peanuts and tape... Hugs to all

Hi all! The collector was a long time member of MOSS, Charlotte Brownfield! She was so welcoming when I went to my first MOSS meetings, esp remember her at the Potowatami(sp) Inn. I am sure Debi and Don knew her far better than me; we had never heard what had happened to her collection. It was really a surprise when I asked Lisa and she told me! Linda was getting ready to check out when we got there, I am sure she will have great treats to show when she gets a chance to unpack. I too got several cute salts and was tickled to get something of Charlotte’s!! Amazingly, I think Lisa had had them consigned to her over two years ago, isn’t that right, Linda? Will post some later after some time to continue unpacking and laundry!!

Glad you got home safe Linda, you put lots of miles on the car for sure, but it is such fun to be able to stop along the way and check out antique stores, etc!!! I don’t Find much around me at all, so always a treat to explore!

Hugs all!! Back to unpacking and laundry!

Finally, I'm home from convention. I bet I'm the last one to make it home!!! I did a little genealogy on the way, so that's partly what took so long. And I stopped at the Antiques & More shop in Champaign Ill. Wouldn't you know Susie P. (wave to her here) showed up about 20 minutes after I did. We had a wonderful time going though the collection of abut 1000 salts, I came away with about 30, Susie bought quite a few too, I'll let her tell you about hers. Susie, what was the collectors name? I remember Charlotte, but not her last name.
Anyway If you happen to get to go to this shop you won't be disappointed. The owner, Lisa, even took time to pull out all the ones not already on display.
I did well at the buy & sell and reverse auction too. I haven't decided if I'm going to pull them all out of the boxes and bags at once, or do one box or bag at a time. It's going to take a loooong time for me to research and catalog everything
Mary, I won't be shopping on ebay any time soon----but if you want to send me one of those Crider jack in a pulputs, it wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit. LOLlOLlOLlOL Hahahahaha

These are the last that I can find anyway. These was a woman selling "Crider" pieces that were not signed. They were exceptional, but only one was of a familiar Crider design. She said her dad had worked along side or something like that when Mr. Crider was also getting started and had sold some of his work to her father. I personally have never know a Crider piece to not have a signature and so backed away from them, grabbing only signed ones.
Just now I noticed that the pink, though sold as a Crider, does not have his signature... Very pretty... BUT
Last for me unless I find more hidden away somewhere waiting for a shelf.. New curio time !!!!

Judy: I just read Salty Comments on these Bird on Branch salts. Ed Berg said that although a dealer told him it was Sandwich, his research says Sandwich has no records of ever having made it. His drawings of the "old" and "new" branches definitely tell me the one I have is neither one of those. By the way, I bought a pair of these on eBay from Sweden and sold one to Ed Bowman. So whoever bought the pale blue Bird on Branch at Ed Bowman's salt auction has the other one from Sweden.

Judy: This is the one I mentioned when Linda first asked about the RUSTIC log salt. I know these log ends are different. I have one of a pair I bought from a seller in Sweden so I'm guessing it was the old one made in Sweden. Can't seem to locate any others although I could have sworn I had a cobalt Mosser one. Don't think I ever knew these were attributed to Sandwich too. The one I have has a slight blue tint to the glass. It's not clear glass. The rear log has a very pointed and sharp tip. Also has small tight wood grain on all three branch ends. Mine is not like your clear one. My bird does not have the same tail. It looks more like your amber bird tail, more plain. So there are probably at least three different ones, not just two.

Nancy V: I do remember that salt but I really have no idea if it was irradiated or not. I think the thickness of the glass might have something to do with the intensity of the color. Many of the irradiated ones done as an OSC project were heavy glass individuals and the colors, either purple or amber were pretty dark. If the bird nest salt was irradiated, maybe it was done for shorter time? I don't know it has anything to do with the color intensity or not. Just a guess. It is odd that it was a one-of-a-kind, but maybe it was an experimental piece. Anything's possible.

Debi, do you remember when I had an amber bird nest salt--found it in a flea market on the way to Tulsa from Fayetteville AR to catch a flight home. I sold it on eBay. I wasn't reading salt group chatter on the internet then and heard later that there was a discussion about that listed salt being a clear version color altered by irradiation. As I considered that, I didn't think so because it was a nice golden amber, not the darker result that I saw on irradiated glass bottles and salts.
The person who bought it wasn't a salt collector but collected amber glass so I hope she knew the difference.

Linda: Gillinder was doing frosted glass back then so I would guess other companies did as well. I have a clear and milk glass RUSTIC (log) salts. Milk glass definitely has the "stars" on the long ends. You have to think about what frosted glass really is. It eats away and roughens up the glass surface so it also eats away any fine detailing. Frosting is done after the glass is made. It doesn't come out of a mold frosted. My guess is that the frosted log is an original salt with the star detail eaten away. The wood grain detailing probably isn't as well defined as it is on the clear or milk glass either. But the frosting may have been done later. You could take any old salt and make it a frosted salt today. I would call that an altered salt, but I don't know if Campbell, Jones & Company originally made them frosted or not. And I'm so glad you took notes back when we were discussing all the salts made by Campbell, Jones that were thought to be made by other companies. We did that when Sid Lethbridge's book on Campbell, Jones came out. The bird nest salt is on the cover! (That's the one shown above with Morning Glories all over it.) But some people just keep repeating incorrect information.

Linda: I'm not aware of any reproductions. Wouldn't they be made in colors if they were reproduced? There's no money to be made off clear repros and we would have seen colors by now. I've only ever seen clear and milk glass. Now the bird on the branch has been reproduced and I'm sure the branch ends are different between old and new on those.

Hard to believe 9-11 was 18 years ago already. I remember everything I did and saw that day like it was yesterday. Babies born that year are adults this year. Time flies faster the older you get.

Donna I use flood lights on tripods so I can move them in / out and up / down to try to get the best area lighted. And I use DAYLIGHT bulbs for hopefully the best color. At one time I had a spot in the front room that had good light at a certain time of day in front of the windows, but the trees make too much shade there now. I now have a folding table I set up with the movable lights and my camera on a tripod.

Thanks Judy, they just did not look right to me. Now I would not question yours because of the gray back drop. The white makes them look like they are just floating in air. Well me and my little dumb phone are doing good enough for eBay and the newsletter.... Just to dang stark, I really do like yours with a bit of color to the back, and pale color would make the pictures look real like yours, but the floating in space effect they have come up with is almost eerie .. Thanks again - me

Mary the seller may be using an overhead light. When I shoot table shoots I use a light on each side and slightly to the front of the salt. This washes the piece with light and helps eliminate unwanted shadows. They are also using a white ground...I usually use a pale dove gray. Still it looks like the shoots may have been run through Photo Shop and manipulated. I use a photo editing Nikon program to highlight, straighten, etc.

And the last example....

First off will ye of better picture taking please tell me how these pictures cannot be touched up beyond belief .... Even the best of pictures presented to the National Newsletter are no competition for these. I cannot believe there is no "brush work" to them.

Second of all, the seller has several more of the same salt posted and the pictures never change. So basically he is using the same picture for three or four different salts and each picture showing a perfect salt. How can this be, especially since they are all the older of the glass salts.

Hey Debi, you want his name and then you can just take his perfect beyond belief pictures for your H&J project. If I am wrong about these being touched up, then please tell me his secret....

Morning rant over and thank you for "listening" .....

Thank you all for the prayers and good thoughts. Unfortunately, they are still needed. Chris is here with me since Thursday. Don came home in a wheelchair ambulance that evening and was doing well, ate a good dinner, watched a ball game with us. He was walking on his own with a cane. Friday morning, he woke us in a bed full of blood and he has been in the hospital ever since. They keep flushing his kidneys and bladder, but there is no diagnosis. Chris extended his flight until Tuesday and Ken will try to come next weekend. I’m all right alone with neighbors looking out for me and a helper who will come Wednesday and shop and clean. Keep on praying.

Don has been in the hospital since Sunday night with bleeding issues. Neighbors have been bringing me food and helping me out. Hopefully he will be released tomorrow. Chris, our youngest son will be here tomorrow as previously planned. Prayers and good thoughts would be appreciated.

   Mary, lolololol, you Crack me up. I need that from time to time.
   Kaylin must be one smart cat. Though I think animals are a lot smarter than we've given them credit for. So many people are posting animal videos on facebook, which I love, showing animals doing amazing things..... on purpose.

I think the geese are on their annual summer "vacation". They haven't been around. I sure hope little one foot comes back soon. Actually Kaylin comes and shows us her eye when it's bothering her because she knows the drops make it feel better.

Jane, my best to you as you recover from your move. I hope your stay in this place is long and wonderful. Best of luck settling in, too.

Debi, thank you for figuring out why I couldn't post. I know I don't contribute much, but I read and care about all the wonderful information and the community that shares. Blessings to all those who post and those who just read, too.
