Sandy, I have the original page of the Manley salts. Would it help if I sent my photo of it to your email?
These are newer salts, but I do love them. They used to be sold in gift shops.

Sandra, someone did cut and paste the single lines of salts from Book 4 of the Manley Collection. All of the lines are those devoted to salts in the book. The books weren't done by Manley as I understand from the first page of the book. A husband and wife did the photos for all four books, showing Manley's glass collection. I have books 2 and 4, would love to find the other two just to see the good photographs. I'm just assuming there are more salts in Book 4 of British Glass than in any of the others.

The photo posted below show do anything you can't see in your book.

  Good afternoon everybody. A cat stretch.... they are professional at stretching. Good morning Nancy D.
  Nancy V. I'm doing the Mary drool over you Jack in the Pulpit salt. The color is warm and delightful.
  Jan, my Tootsie, where is your salt of the day??? My addiction NEEEEDS those pictures.
  HELLO miss Sandra Jzyk, how very nice to see you. Welcome aboard. You have all the Manley books.... you are so lucky.
  We haven't heard from Mary, Jane or Susie today. Hi girls, hope You're doing well. You know who else we haven't heard from in a long time.... Joan. I hope she is doing O K.
  My salt of the day, I think this is a rare beauty. I probably learned that from Jan. I believe it is called 'Pineapple' correct me if I'm wrong.
  Debi, can we have a new monthly salt topic?

Someone must have copied lines from the Manley book because I have that book and the salts appear on different pages. Wish I could print out that page you put here, but I can't do it. Something must be protecting it. I have to laugh because I have all four of those books and never realized they were done by C. C. Manley. I also have his large book. Lots of books to look up stuff in but never find it all LOL

Good morning to all.
Thanks for the discussion on my “flowerball” salt. Love that designation! It does have an anchor mark and I never thought of it as Elfinware, just came across that definition recently. If I find it again, I will let you all know. Whatever, I love it and all Elfinware, if you all look up the Salem Convention skit, I portrayed an Elfinware salt.

  Mary, love the dog and chicken. Those are quality Elfinware. I have some but not particularly fond of them. There are many different quality Elfinware. The high quality are very attractive.
Lololol, I like to think it neat to have to have spinach on it to be catagoried as Elfinware.
  Susie, Beautiful butterflies.
  Still get a kick out of flower balls. Even if they speak German.

I think I also vaguely remember that the green "spinach" has to be present to be an Elfinware piece. But don't ask me where or who I heard that from. LOL

Love those baskets and butterflies. There are sooooo many wonderful little pieces of art in open salts.

Elfinware is strictly German and your beautiful flower ball is not elfinware. I had one years ago and my memory is leaning towards Debi’s mention of English. But most definitely not German. Loving it !!!

I thought Elfinware was primarily German made. I think these little flower covered balls are English. Mine has an anchor mark on it. Can't think of the company right now but am sure it's by an English pottery firm.

Hi Nancy. It is not listed in Neal but shown in H&J as 3492. It has all the makings of a lacy though.
I recently got this one I am posting and have not had a chance to see if it is in any of the books. I had to have it because it is so unusual.
Debi, do you want pictures of the H&J 3492. It is a bit down the road in your project so thought I would ask first.

  Nancy V, Some of these clear salts are the most beautiful salts ever. Your's is stunning. I think it takes a real artisan to make clear glass exquisite. I just got one from Susie P as a gift. (I cried) I posted it a bit ago. So beautiful. These are a bit more on the simple side.

   Good afternoon everybody. So cats have staff. I tried babysitting about 6 kittens for a neighbor once. Got so sick. I am very allergic. Yet my son has a black barn cat and I don't react to him at all. That cat only loves Hunter. Has nothing to do with the rest of the family. Hunter can tie the cat in knots and it is OK. I don't like the idea of a littler box.

   Susie P. Black with gold is so pretty together. That's a nice one.

Another vaseline salt, pretty clear canary yellow in natural light.

Lynda, I see a salt like yours at #194 in the Manley collection, Book 4, but it's pink and white cased. It didn't get included in the page below since it and another cased salt were in a line with other types of pieces rather than in a long line of salts.

   Jane, good luck cleaning. I hate cleaning.
   Jan, Helen is a jaw dropper. You have great salt instinct. She's a beauty.

The HELENE-can’t remember how it was listed, but my gut screamed BUY so I did. Happened to have purchased a book on pressed glass by Mr. Heacock, and there was an old ad in there for the pattern! Debi found the aka HELENE, which is much easier to remember. I have seen one other since then.

Nancy D. I have the book of of C. C. Manley's collection from which these lines of salts are taken. It's an odd little book with cardboard pages, and someone spliced together pictures of rows of salts from various pages to make this handout. I have book 4, titled British Glass and Book 2, Collectible Glass with the sub-title Over 100 Different Types of Glass. I have no idea what books 1 & 3 might be. Little information on individual pieces, some lines of salts just identified as Stourbridge salts. Pictures are very clear, taken by Ted and Vi Lagerberg, book dated 1968.

  Jan, I have never seen HELEN before. Reminds me of a Lilly pad flower. She's beautiful. I love her. Is it a pattern for a table setting?

This is another view of previous salt. Someone in one of the Eastern clubs did some research and a talk at a club meeting. I will try to find the information.
O.K., I did find the information. They are reproductions of Old Dutch Silver, by the Barbour Silver Co., early 1920’s. Most of them had polished flint glass linings.
There are several pages of salts, peppers, tea strainers, nut cups. Unfortunately they are too dark and indistinct for me to photograph.

  This is Tank, he's not a salt. Lolololol, Good afternoon everybody. Hope you are all doing well. Thank you Nancy V for the beautiful salt of the day. I am not a fan of the Vaseline color reminds me of urine. I don't even like it in rigaree on art glass salts. Still, that is a beautiful salt.
  How come the rest of you have petered out on the daily salt favorite fun to show salt? I know you all have pretties. Even clear individuals would be nice to see.
  Nancy D, so good to see your beautiful face. The little guy is a puppy dog. Cute cuddle. I miss having an animal. I have always had dogs. Had dinner at my son's Thursday. His Pitt absolutely loves me. (Thank God) I get my dog lovin fix from him. My daughter has a Dane and Chihuahua. The Chihuahua gets so happy to see you, you can't hold her. Her whole body gyrates so much you think you'll drop her.

Hi, Mary S. I don’t recognize your piece at all and I agree with others, it looks large for a salt. You could go to references on this site and look though the old catalog pages and see if you have any success. Measurements would help!

Mary, your pedestal bowl looks like Portieux Vallerysthal. Are there any marks? As others have asked, dimensions are needed to judge whether it's a salt or not. I looks suspiciously large, but hard to tell with nothing to judge by it.

   Jan, you never cease to amaze me. That's a beautiful set. How many rooms have you painted, floors redone and bathrooms remodeled? You'Re the energizer bunny.
   Debi, how's your back? Are you feeling better?
   Nancy V, I don't even have words on how beautiful that green salt is. It is hard to pick my favorite color. Blue and green are the colors I love best but a nice purple is pretty to me too.
   Mary Stephens, if you would give us a measurement we might be able to help. If your piece is larger than 3"-3 1/2", you may have a serving piece. It is beautiful but I've never seen a salt that looks like that. It might be Vallerysthal. Jan, what do you think?

  Thank you Debi, Creamware... that sounds like the name I remember. I think many are over the 10, 11 year old arguement and don't care about sharing info. with this site. Unfortunately, 1 person won't let go. It is sad to be that small and selfserving. To deny others collectors the info here, is shameful. I don't know how to remedy this except to slowly chip away at it. Mention opensalts.us when I can. I know Rich Cornwell mentioned the site often in his presentation.

Lynda, Glad you and PJ sorted things out. Of course the problem is Facebook. Look who runs it and deletes whatever she doesn't want on it, especially any mention of my website. What the hell is she afraid of? People finding actual answers to questions they have about their salts? Definitely petty, more like mean girls high school behavior. I haven't talked to any of them for about 10 years and they are still at it.

About your salt, it's probably creamware but I can't see the design very well. Need a profile shot. Not a trencher.

  Good morning everyone. Nancy D, you are very sweet and kindhearted. I spoke to P J and got everything straightened out. I thank you and Debi for your help. PJ is heartbroken that there isn't more sharing between the sites. She loved that Kay and Ed Berg never thought twice about sharing with anyone. We all know Debi wants people, any people to use her referance site. So the problem is F B. I was taken aside and told not to mention this site on F B. I feel that's wrong and mention this site when I can sneak it in but I am not liked for it. I get afraid they will kick me out. Probably should not even talk about it here but at some point I have to take a stand and Sharing info is very important.

My salt for the day is one I bought from Linda Kelsey at the National Convention in San Francisco, 2001 or 2002. She had samples from some English makers and hoped to take orders for them, but she didn't get enough orders to make that happen. Some of us bought the samples.

This one is from Jonathan Harris. I love the color with silver overlay.

Susie P. They are a prefect match! I don't keep doubles, always liked to sell one to cover the price of a pair. But the pair is striking. I sold one to a man who wanted a present for his wife, don't think they were well know in the salting community. It was back in the day when seller and buyer could talk and arrange things like sending to an address to keep a present secret. eBay is no longer that user friendly.

On the subject of your Fostoria salts, I posted earlier that salt is already on the Fostoria page near the bottom because they are in numerical order.

Please note at end of comment I think I said I love your guts or barvery or something along those lines. Writing and not talking face to face can leave things to the wrong interpretation.

She actually got a little huffy saying no matter what we should be able to all work together to up date information, something like that. I like her spunk. Can you place these on the Fostori page?

   Nancy D. that salt is very elegant. Vienna???, Italian?
   Nancy V. Those 2 red or cranberry. Really beautiful. I know nothing of their history but they are special. Your blue nut. Imagine a set of these on the table for your guest to eat almonds out of. It would be beautiful.

Keeping with the blue theme, my salt of the day is a nut cup. I saw the pair in a fine antique shop and took a couple of salts to the check out counter. The owner said he wanted to show me his loveliest salts and took me back to the nut cups. I couldn't resist them the second time, so I bought them and sold one of the pair. The shade of blue is nearly unique.

I have an ID question too. What could these two pieces be? From the enameled decorations, I think both may be Moser glass, but forms are puzzling. The little one is just a smidge over one inch both directions, seems tiny for a salt or a drinks glass. The larger one is just under 2" wide at the mouth and 1 3/4" tall. Optical illusion that it looks taller than it is wide. Could be a drinks glass? I have both in my salt collection.

   Hi everyone. Hope you are all doing well. Nancy D, that is one sad cat. Kinda fits the theme. We are all a bit achy breaky.
   Debi, yes that may be an egg cup. Were there Lacy egg cups?
Well my 2 youngest twinnies started school 8/10. So far so good. They are in 8th grade. Their school is a lot computer education so teachers don't do a lot of lecturing. But each teacher teaches 2 different subjects. So what they'ev done is the kids stay in those 2 classes back to back. That decreases movement. When they do move, they move from the classes single file, 6 ft apart. My other 3 don't start til next Monday. I felt the teachers should be the only ones to move from class to class but the school said too many teachers have equipment in the rooms they use. I say... get a cart. Lolololol, but no one listens to me.
   These salts are silver holders and yes I tried to clean them.... rotten little critters... the bowls are stone of some sort. Cute, very different.
   Take care everyone. Be well.

My back pain is not constant but every so often I twist the wrong way and then it is about 5 days of having to stand up with a lot of support, walking carefully, sitting carefully, getting in and out of bed slowly, you get the picture. If I touch my lower back it feels bruised. You know what that feels like when you press on a bruised area? That's what it feels like. Why would it physically feel like a bruised area on the outside when it's a pain on the inside? Weird. Just sneezed twice and thought I was going to die!

Lynda, I think your Lacy is an egg cup rather than a salt, but who cares? It's really nice.

Hi All..Great meeting yesterday..My first Zoom !!! Wish there had been a way to tape the Fostoria information...Since the majority of my collection is cut and pressed crystal...it seems I have more Fostoria than I knew... who knew???

And... I DID Know... My very FIRST open salt was a Fostoria... An individual Hartford... it was a gift from a friend... I thought it was a childs play punch bowl... He taught me what it was... and I was hooked !!! Later I found a Master...but...it's different than what you all show... check the top... Photo enclosed.

  Debi and Jane, yes, Hartford. You would not believe it but even just now I saw Illinois in my mind. I had to do a double take. I don't know which is worse, my eyes or my brain. Both don't function worth beans. But you guys keep me on track and are nice about it so thank you.
  Nancy D, I am sad for you. Know exactly how you feel. I hope you have friends and care givers to keep you company. Nancy, do you have any pets?
  Jan, glad Nancy V said there was an oval and a round. That makes them even more special. I've seen the oval but never the round. I swear you could find that needle in the hay stack.
  Debi, I hate back pain. If that patch dosen't I don't know if tiger balm and a flannel blanket woukd help either. I have 1 t rugged point that will put me down. Way back when, I had just graduated from nursing school. I was working with the retarded ( politically the mentally challenged) on a med-surge ward. My adult patient was having a grand-Mal and she came right out of the bed over the bed rails and I caught her. And pulled a muscle just under my shoulder blade. When ever I sit wrong ro do something it gets aggravated. But, tiger balm and a baby flannel blanket does the trick. I smell and look funny but no pain. Wish it were that easy for you Debi. Does heat help at all?
  I think this is a Lacy salt.

Debi and Jane, pain stinks and you have my empathy and concern.
What Mary isn’t saying is that my trip to help her is postponed for two weeks because I was inadvertently exposed to covid. Grrrrrr. I am not a happy camper at all, but better safe than sorry.

Ok, salts of the day

Oh Jane I am so sorry and to both you and Debi, I do understand the sore back situation and I feel for you. Could you buy more than two at a time and just store them in the trunk or back seat of the car and then just go get him two a day from the car rather than the trip to the store. Oh wait, maybe the geesers are on the way to the store and you get to see them and also a bit of time away from him. Oh my, did I say that.....

Hi Debi, I am not selling my entire collection, but about 80% of it. I can no longer accept with calmness seeing all the boxes full and untidy shelves full. So instead of leaving this for my kids who have no idea what to do with them and have no use for them, I get to see who they go to and hopefully most to friends I know and love. I will keep my very special ones, like the Salter salt and Puff and at least one Daum, etc.. Mr. Evans has said he does all types and I am to send him some sample pictures. I am sure it is to be sure that what I have is what he considers right for his auctions. I totally understand this and if he deems my pieces to not be something he is interested in dealing with, I will get in touch with the people in Florida.

I do have hundreds of mom's cup plates to sell and they are not worth very much so will go in lots on eBay and hope there are still some active collectors out there. And then there are Bob's Empire toy steam engines and his steins....... Oh my, I best get betterest cause I have a ton to sell.

Oh, Debi! I'm in the process of cleaning the bathroom, and that really does my back in. And he makes me go to a store every day and bring home 2 liter bottles of Coke. I'm just about ready to go to bed and stay there!

Debi, so sorry to hear about your pain. Take good days as they come.
Lynda, I thought that was the Hartford pattern. You have so many.
Take it easy, gang.

I've been around. Just posted some topic pictures of my animals this morning. I am OK except for my back giving me such fits I can't even walk much. Every step is slow because if I'm walking with no support when that screeching pain hits I would crumble to the floor. The menthol/lidocaine patch on the back doesn't help. I just need to stay as immobile as possible for now. It usually lasts about 5 days. I'm on day 3. I don't feel like tackling another H&J page right now. Maybe next month. I guess the next page will start with H&J 2837.

Lynda, I think your picture below is the HARTFORD pattern. Fostoria did not make ILLINOIS.

Mary, I had no idea you were selling off your salt collection. You should sell off first what you don't collect, like those cup plates. Didn't you say you had a lot of those from your mother's collection?

  Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well.
  Hey Debi,There was a zoom salt meeting held and Rich Cornwell did a presentation on Fostoria salts. At the end he told everyone he got a lot of information for the presentation from this site. Whoo whoo....stars to you. He said the Illinois master in this picture is more available then the same with a straight rim. I did not know there were 2 masters to this pattern. Has anyone seen the straight rim?
  Jan your red coralien salt is beautiful.
  Are you O K Debi? Haven't heard from you in a bit.
  Don, was that you at another salts house for the zoom meeting. They had the sweetest cat. I'm not familiar with the couple.

Good morning everyone, though I guess it is closer to lunch time for most of you.
Nancy V., I am just starting to talk to Jeffrey Evans. I need to send him some sampling pictures. I am not sure he is into silver and faience, but I feel my lacy salts will do better with him. so should know better soon, There is the auction house in Florida that did Elaine's collection and if Mr. Evans only wants the lacy and artless salts, then I will send the others to Florida, providing he will do the auction.
I look at all the boxes stacked and the office drawers and of course my curios and am not sure this will ever get done. I certainly do not want to send off a salt I did not really want to. So which ones stay and which ones go. A very hard decision on some.
My phone and iPad both ran out of steam or I would have posted a salt, next time........

Good morning. So happy to see favorite salts.

Well, my new refrigerator was delivered yesterday. No photos, it’s nothing special, no bells or whistles. Just needed new as the other was leaking. Chris was able to clean out the old the night before, so everything went smoothly.
We are having fun together but he leaves tomorrow.

Jane, praying for you & Phil. I know exactly what it’s like. Be brave, you can get through it.

   Whoaaaa, Nancy V, the color in your quezal, stunning.
   Jan, I know most collectors get all excited with color, or art glass. But my all time favorite salt is Shoshone. Something about it. I love all my other salts. Appreciate their beauty but these clear glass individuals and the clear glass pedestals really give me good feelings.
  Nancy D, that little china basket is very pretty. Love the raised decoration. The amount of beautiful salts out there, .... just mind blowing.
  This salt was from Guilmartin auction. Probably French.

OK, Lynda. I don't have many on my computer photo page, most are saved on an external hard drive, But here is one of my favorite art glass salts. It's Quezal, whose iridescence seems to me to be better than Tiffany's of the same sort.

   Hi everybody. Hope you are all doing well. Mr Kitty, Tom did catch Jerry, but they would fight like cats and dogs. Jerry cracked me up when he had had enough of Tom. He 'D march at Tom like a Little Banty rooster.
   Jane, I don't know what to say. I feel for you and Phil. Not the best of times. I really hope he gets the go ahead for surgery. It is not fair to leave the 2 of you suffering.
   Jan, hello love, and where is your Salty picture my dear? Need to feed my desire to see your precious beauties.
   Susie P, lovely salt. That raised gold is so pretty to see. I love to feel it with my finger tips.
   Mary, have a good day. Having care givers makes life so much better and it sounds like your girls are special. I wish Jane could get some help so she'd have a break.
   Nancy D. Lolololol, your picture says it all. Happy time with your baby. Send us a picture of the new refridge. Mine is an apt refridge, no fun there. Lololol
   Hi Nancy V. Hope all is well, A lot of salt collections go to auction houses. It really gives people a chanel to get some beautiful salts. Pop a picture of a salt when you post.... just for fun.

Love seeing great smiles first thing in the morning. I know you will have a great time today. I mean your son is there and a new refrigerator. Life is good for you. I had to get a new one recently and it was a marvelous day when it arrived and I could get my food out of my neighbors and into my own new one.
Pretty pretty salt Susie, but then I do not remember you ever showing one that wasn't .....
Oh Jane, I am so sorry for both of you. He has suffered enough and you have had to watch him and be on constant alert long enough also. I am still saying hip surgery prayers and also some relief for both of you.
I know that sending most of my salts to auction is the right thing to do, but the thought of so many going away is starting to set in. I have to do this, but it is already starting to hurt. So glad Jan will be here to keep me focused and also help me laugh a bit during the process. I have to focus on seeing you all happy with salts you won and knowing they have new safe homes...
Have great days, I have to get ready for today's keeper. She is my whirlwind and I am tired and out of breath a short time after she arrives. She's my "kid" and I love her dearly and will do whatever she tells me I should... So cool, I can be the kid with a playfully strict "mom"

I'm enjoying seeing al the LOVELY Salts, but with ALL the Salts I'm discovering, that have been packed in BOX's, I'm much less apt to COVET these BEAUTIES! Nancy ,that's a LOVELY SALT, and Susie, the BLACK is "to die for"! Susie, we had an inch and 4 tenths of rain last weekend. It all depends on WHERE you live! We've missed out on several other "scattered showers"! Susie let me know when Gary will NEED to "check out the Casino", and I'll dig you starts of several Daylillies. I see that The Covered Bridge Festival is cancelled this year(along with almost everything!), so I won't be getting out that way this Fall!

How pretty, Nancy D! The shell flowers are cleverly made. I relish memories of my one trip to Cape Cod. I couldn't find a Sandwich salt, settled for a small platter and an opalescent cup plate that I love. I never got another cup plate, but I think they are fascinating. Looked at pictures of them for years.

Nancy that is really beautiful. I think even prettier than the pincushions. I would not have been able to control myself and just buy one.
I am going to have to see if I can post pictures from my iPad. I am sure I can, but think it wants passwords.. See what I can do. Want to share my pedestals too. I have them with the metal bases and just the crystal clear ones. I am still drooling over yours Lynda and your special one Susie.
One of my keepers is here this afternoon so I won't be doing much here, need to get some things done around here.
