Janelle: I just got a book on English Glass and in the Burtles, Tate & Company pages it says that registration #20085 is the "Design for glass flower holder or bracket" and #20086 is the "Design for glass flower holder (swan)". 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.

Debi I am so happy for you. I too am looking for the perfect one, but not in blue and white. I am just tickled for you and you truly deserve finding it and winning it.
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 can't imagine going that long without buying a salt!! I guess that's called "selective buying", which I DON'T DO(if I did, I wouldn't have ALL THESE SALTS! Oh well, I enjoy the "finding" more than the "having!) Hope it's worth the wait! HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL! Don and Deane

  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.

Lynda: All those "J" names got to me sometimes too. We had Jan, Jane, Janelle, Joan, Judy and Jytte. Did I miss any?

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.

My Christmas Present salt should be here Thursday or Friday. I have always wanted one so I finally got it. Have not bought a salt in ages!

   By the way, I have a very dear friend who speaks very highly of your site. Her name is Beverly and she follows your site closely. You can be very proud of your achievements on this site. I love it too.

Yes. It is too stressful living alone and being housebound. Hard to get doctors to come and since all my sons are in different states, it is hard on them taking turns to help me. Have to move near one of them. One son will begin selling salts after the holidays. They have already been selling Don’s stamp collection with the help of a good friend of his. Depressing, but reality is setting in.

  I know we get a lot of people who come to this site and look at what are saying and showing. Maybe someone new at collecting would like this. I know there is a lady selling her Dad's collection of about 275 masters and individuals. They are all the old individual/master clear salts. In good shape. Took me years to collect all of them. She would like $ 4.50 per salt. I'm seeing a few other people considering selling their collections. I would'nt even know where to begin.

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.

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.?

Lynda: Read the last paragraph in the text at the top of the Fostoria page.

PJ: I scored a Cambridge black swan too, but I'd really love an original Cambridge cobalt one. I think those are even more rare than the black ones.

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.

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: 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.

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.
