most of the intaglios were made in the 20's and 30s, as far as I an tell, so it might have been made a few years earlier than 1939. I have a clear one, and gave away a pink one.

You might like this Hoffman Vaseline glass salt. I see it's in the 1939 catalogue but is it earlier?

I wasn't going to put up my tree. Now everyone has decided to come to my house, so I guess I should. I need to decorate it differently, too bad I can't glue salts to it, they wouldn't stay on very well. Maybe I'll use cookie cutters?

  I'd like to second what Nancy D said. I'm in there quite often. What I need to do is take my time. I rush thru and miss too much. I will tell you that Double salt presentation.... I just slowly read and looked at it 3 times now. It gives me so much pleasure to see all those beautiful Doubles. Very professional. Thank you for making it easier for us lost souls who can't find anything.

  I've said it already but HAPPY THANKSGIVING to my dear friends. You give me so much pleasure. I am in awe of your knowledge and your kindness. Thank you for dealing with me and my goonieness. Debi, you have been especially patient with me and I so appreciate it. Love you all.

Lynda: Here's a screen shot of the leaf dishes. If you'll notice the text at the bottom right side, you can click on the word "HERE" (on the website) to see Judy's page. I will also add it to the Odds-n-Ends page so maybe it can be more easily found. We all have these, but because I tried to make the website about open salts and not everything else that just looks like open salts - like individual nut dishes - I did not concentrate as much on all those other things.

   Thank you everyone. I was never really a swan person. I'd pick one up here or there. The Lenex swans are beautiful in their stark beige color. This black swan came in a Berg group. I was just lucky.

   Debi, will do. Well that was interesting and fun to see but did not see Judy's page. Did she do more?

   Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Enjoy the food family and fun.

   J.J., I have tried to shine a light thru it..... no luck. It is either black or very dark blue. My grandgirl's will be here tomorrow, I'll see if their eyeballs are better.

PJ, love your swan but know nothing about the Cambridge ones other than there was some confusion about who made what when I was checking them out . With the Rg. No on Lynda’s piece it does confirm who made it. I did see a blue Burtles & Tate one, more of a Bristol Blue colour and they are considered rare as well. Red is rare as well.
Lynda, hard to see but is your one black or Very dark blue.?

I really like Lynda's dark blue Burtles & Tate swan. I thought I'd never seen any dark ones and Janelle confirmed it.

Hi All... Janelle... My BLACK swan came directly from the Cambridge Museum... Actually Judy Bennett was "manning" the museum at the time and sold me one of her black swans..Apparently her husband was instrumental in creating this design... at least this was her story and the black swan was a special run... This was the story written on my "Log card"... from back in 2003... I'm sorry that's all I can remember... I do remember visiting with her...she was a very "gentlewoman" and was ready to retire from the museum... she was very proud of the work her husband had done in the glass works...EDIT !!! CORRECTION !!! It was NOT at the MUSEUM... It was purchased at the BENNETTS' shop across the street from the Cambridge Museum...DUHH I really must learn to put my glasses on correctly... or learn to read my own handwriting ???? She said it was one of the old originals..??? The end...

Hi Lynda,
A bit more on the B&T Black Swan, I did find a reference to them making a black swan but it is considered a Rare colour. Could not find a photo of one and even some of the people I know that collect B&T do not have one. I have a few pieces of Burtles & Tate and love them. You did good girl, getting that piece.

Debi, I have gone into referances, then into Fostoria salts and nuts, then nothing I press on everything but there's nothing at top for me to go to. I'm sorry, give me a step by step cause I'm not making it.

J. J., Trying to see this # has been a challenge but I got it with a flashlight. Rd ( the d is suppose to be elevated) No 20086. So it is Tate and whatever. This was a Berg collection salt.

Hi Lynda,
Have not been on here for a couple of days. Love your blue swan, I think it may be a rare colour. I have never seen a dark blue one before. The Burtles & Tate registered No should be 20086, the pressing of the registered number was often unclear. Can you show a close up of the bottom. You may have a very unusual one there.

Lynda: You know how to find the page on Fostoria salts under References. (I put that together with Ed Berg's help and many pictures of his salts I did not have.) The only way to get to the page on Fostoria nut dishes is through the text at the top of the page. Obviously, the link about the leaf dishes (by Judy in Texas) is by those pictures. Fostoria NEVER made the leaf dish in milk white. What might be confusing is that there is actually a small book of just Fostoria salts and whoever put it together included the milk glass one. Another reference by "experts" containing mistakes that keep getting repeated. Like the book author who added the Steuben salt with Fostoria and now no one trusts that it IS a Steuben. The value on those dropped big time.

One more thing, all of Ed Bowman's information can be found on my website under references. I got permission from him years ago. It is not all lost as reported. The only things not there are all of his collection pictures and his "for sale" pages. The fact that the Queen B's who run the Facebook page delete posts and otherwise try to keep people away from my website does not help anyone learn anything. I have not had contact of any kind with any of those people for what? Something like eight years now. But they still do everything they can to get me out of the picture completely and keep people away from my website. Can't post on the Lacy page, and on and on. Yep, it's all my doing. LOL

Lynda - question for you - who is Jill?

Lynda: We need Janelle or Nancy V to verify this. Could it be Burtles & Tate? Any swan with a number on it does not sound American made to me. There are English made swans with RD (registered) numbers on them. I don't have any but Janelle has several. Compare your salt to the ones Janelle and Nancy V. posted under Swans in August 2013.

Lynda, could your swan be Rosso? They sometimes marked with an R, but according to Ed Bowman, the R was in a keystone. Ed’s research on Rosso shows only a Vaseline swan in Debi’s references.

  Debi, I did do a slow viewing of some of the catalog pages. It's hard on some cause they arn't as clear as my pathetic eyes need. I saw a lot of my clunkers. Now I will be writting down little notes to go into my salts.... the ones I can figure out for sure. I wish the bottoms of some were shown....lolololol, I ask a lot don't I.
  I didn't have any luck with identification of my Dark blue salt. If you guys don't know.... who does?
   I'm going to try another request. I know one of our ladies love swans. I have been searching, it is not a Cambridge, not a Wright or a Boyd. Who made this swan? The base says R" No 200.

Lynda: George Duncan and Sons made the 3 Face (as we call it) pattern in many different pieces. I think the toothpick holder was added by Wright and was never part of the original old pattern by Duncan. If you want to known anything about about pattern glass, go to http://www.eapgs.org and save that link! Here's a more specific link to that Duncan pattern: http://www.eapgs.org/patterns/full-images.php?idx=5817&pat=2354

   Hurrrraaaaay, Hi Debi. I am very grateful for your input and tickled pink, because I thought it was a Libbey. I'll be glad to take the pictures. Huuhh, where do I post them?
   I'm having a frustration on facebook over the 3 faces salt. I have a research card..... yes ....me. I did some research. Nothing extravagant. A person is saying the original 3 face was part of a set that included a toothpick, compote, sherberts and were done by Duncan. I said nope.... Duncan made the salt, square beads at rim and that's all they made. L G Wright made the sets with the round beads at rim. Aroind 1935 or 1950. This person has a patent that shows the 3 face compotes, sherberts, ect from 1875 or 1878. I've forgotten the date but that doesn't jive with Ed Berg's info or Ed Bowman's info. This person posted more. I wish I could cut and paste from there to here as it is a lot of info. I'm hoping you or Judy, or Jill know about the 3 faces salt.

   Well Nancy, thank God you have a brain. I couldn't remember. I think the salts I get from salt friends aRe the best of all. I am putting your name in the salt so I don't forget again.

   Ahhhh, flooding the board with new salts is what it's all about. The more the merrier. I got the salt from ..... did I get it from you or Nancy M.? I think it was Nancy, but both of you are in my brain.There were 2 and I was able to get one. I fell in love with it. It's one of my favorites. Stands 2" tall and 2 1/4" wide with leaves. Bowl is 1 3/4" wide.

Still so smoky today. So many houses burnt down, stock lost and native animals burnt. Koalas have been badly impacted. I don’t do outside at the moment as breathing impacted. Luckily I will have a oxygenator on Friday so should make a difference. We are in severe drought and now fires. Mother Nature needs a severe kick where it hurts

Thank you. Have not been buying any salts but I did miss the discussions and photos. We are in the midst of catastrophic fires and although not near me, I wondered what I would save if I had to evacuate. Luckily it did not come to that, the most we had were embers and bad bad smoke.

I just got a new lacy salt, pattern of hearts and arches, but I don't know what name the pattern goes by. It's pictured in an old Ruth Webb Lee book on Victorian Glass on Plate 71, but she doesn't give any pattern name. I can post a picture later for any help. I don't seem to have a good source for lacy patterns.

Maybe if you take it easy when you feel good, you might not suffer so much? Just a thought. You strike me as a person who really tries to get a lot done when she feels well cause, you know the pain is coming back, knocking you on your butt.

Hello. Yes I am still around, but not real happy about it. Very difficult to over come this round of pain, but am trying once again. I have to accept I am living on a roller coaster ride and that is the way it will be.....
I see our Crider collecting is doing well and I am still going to get our salts in the newsletter. Donna, I will get back to you shortly. Appreciate your getting in touch and thank you Debi for giving her my email.
My snake has eyes. Not sure how I missed the fact that it was a snake. Now that you told me, it really is quite obvious.... DUH
I once again tried to fix everything with the purchasing of salts.. Some very interesting ones at that. will return with some pictures soon.
Just wanted to check in... Hugs to all...

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.

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....

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 (and others), do you remember how to save pictures from this page? Instead of right clicking on the picture to enlarge it, left click and select open in new tab or new window. Then you can save it to your computer.

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.

Thanks Mary, I hope mine is an 18th century one, but just in case I'm putting either 18th or 19th century in my description. I can't believe t was still at the antique mall after almost two years.
I'll email you my Crider stry later today, sometime.
Lynda, does your green one on the left say MOSS on the bottom?

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

I really don't think they are doing work like that anymore. Probably just the simple, plain ones like mine.

Linda H. I have Al’s book on Crider. If you have some, it’s well worth having. Lots of photos and info. Just my 2 cents worth of advice.

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!

This is my other “newer” Crider. There were several other colors offered. Any left, Donna?

  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.
