   GOOOOOD MORNING all saltaholics. Hot, humid day in Fl. Trying not to complain. Vallerysthal is one of my all time favorites. Jan turned me on to them and I got totally hooked. This one is very pretty Jan. LOVE every salt they've made. I don't think I have pictures of all of mine. Sigh, another project.
   I am trying to write an article on mold blown crack offs. That'll keep me brain active for a while. I have books on history of glass but, some are still packed. I'll get to it.
   AFTER I digest judy's bird encyclopedia. Judy, I want to meet you and just hug you. You guys just blow my. Debi, Jan, Joan. The love you have for the TOTAL saLt package. My respect to you.
   Mornin, Nancy D. Pumpkin kitty cute. Stay well.
   Nancy V. The salts with enameled lace are just very pretty. It seems to me they belong together. I'll stick with Nancy V's and do lacy salts of the day. Your purple is beautiful.
   O K.... HATE..... to admit this. How the H. E. double hockey sticks do you people maneuver Ed Bowman's stuff. I can't go there and find anything. I can view, and scroll,and ponder but but to find something specific..... forget it, I'm lost. I can't find the damn Kings Crown master. How do you find stuff without searching every darned thing listed. This has driven me nuts for years. But I am DONE. I want to see that stinking master Kings Crown. (please help this old embarrassed me)

   Good morning Nancy D.
   Jane, nice decorations. I'm too lazy to decorate. It means I have to put salts away somewhere to make space. That's not going to happen. But I would like to get pumpkins for the squirrels.

Nancy D, all I remember is that I bought several from the daughter of a woman that work there. There was a VERY LIMITED amount of them made by a few of the workers and they were NOT made for the public or even the Avon Big Wigs. There aren't many of them out there and I believe I just recently gave away my last one. So hang on tight to it!!!

I am not going to do anything with the chickens until I can quietly sit down and really look at them and decide which ones I am keeping. The Carmel and white one for sure as Ed gave that one to me and I think my blue Wetzle is broken and cannot travel safely, so he has to stay. There are a few others that are different for some reason and I have to look them all over to find them. I think I misunderstood and thought Judy needed more colors or missing hens, or I certainly would not have posted the entire box. Slap hand, wait until asked.......

Avon, Cape Cod pattern. Probably the maker was Fostoria? They sold plates, goblets, napkin rings. But, I think the salts are rare. I remember a discussion about them quite a few years ago. I think Mary was in on the discussion, maybe she can help.
Just found info. Made by Wheaton glass in 1975.

   Good morning everyone. I pray that God gives you all a sweet blessing for being so good to me. Gunner seems to be doing well this morning. Jessica's tire is still inflated, both her and Charlie are plugging along. No choice, gotta move forward.
  My gosh Judy, your hen knowledge is Flippin amazing. I won't get it in my head correctly till I hand write it down. And then I'll have to refer to the notes. That is A LOT of knowledge. God bless you. And thank you for sharing.
   Linda, I like your speckled hen. My grand daughters are raising chickens. They belong to Aggraculture class ( kinda like a school 4-H) and will be showing goats and pigs this Spring at the Fair. They could tell you what kind of hen she is. I like her. She has personality.
   Thank you Nancy D. You're very precious.
   Debi, sorry I sent you the musical howling Gunner to you. Chica tried to chiming in but a tiny, tiny Chihauhaua just sounds like a high pitched whistle. Hope you let your husband enjoy the performance. That's Morgan playing the trumpet. Lolololol she's as bad as the chihuahua. I would have loved to send the video to Judy and Joan. Just no way for me to do so.

That speckled one is amazing Linda. Really cute.

Judy, I'll put the first page up tonight and you can begin posting whenever you want. In order to limit the number of pictures I'd be bombarded with, let's let Judy post hers and then we can fill in whatever is still missing. Obviously I'll not be able to post every color of every hen, so we should try to post the color that's in H&J and maybe one or two others. Pictures should be large on the info page if we are going to try and point out differences and marks. That leaves little room for much else.

Mary, if you happen to have a Westmorland HON in green and decide you will give it up, I would love to buy it from you.(looks like there's one in the back left corner) I have red white blue and yellow and have been looking for a green one for a long time. I think there might have been purple too but that would be rare.

Judy I can do individual pictures of my flock, plus rabbits, cats, dogs, ducks and turkeys. I counted them the other day but don't remember the number I came up with. I think it was over 40, and I bought two more over the last 2 weekends. I don't think the cats, rabbits, ducks or dogs are in H & J

Picture of Westmoreland Cased Glass Nest Bottom

Mary the smallest hens got my attention right away. I have a couple of the Ed Bowman's hens with an "EE" mark ( amethyst and white milk). R Wetzel made these before Ed and I've been looking for a hen with "R Wetzel" on the bottom edge of the salt. I've seen it in cobalt blue. Would you check yours to see if you have one?

The colored hens with scalloped rims on a basket weave on the side and bottom of the base basket; and are white on the inside are Westmoreland in their "cased" glass. I have one in yellow (in poor shape) and green. We could use other colors when we get these pages going.

The basket weave nest, woven pattern on the sides and bottom, was used by Westmoreland, Degenhart, Boyd, Rosso and Vallerysthal. They may also be marked on the inside of the nest with their makers marks. If you have a Rosso with their "R" in a Keystone can you get pictures of it and the mark? Summit used the basket weave on the sides but have plain bottoms and they will usually have their "V" in a circle on it. These H&J pages do not have Summit hens.

The salts that have Ribbed sides on the basket and a wide rim are Mosser...H&J didn't have a Mosser on either of the pages I'm working on.

I think I see you have salts with a crosshatched design on the sides. Smith and many of the imports have this design. ONE SMITH H&J #953. I have three of those that will cover this project. The Smith salts have a slightly scalloped rim...Imports usually have flat topped rims.

There are other ID clues Luke turned heads, thickness of the necks and beaks, and shapes of the tails....OK now I know I'm in too deep in this!
Hope this was some help for your purging.

If you would like smaller group shots to see if there are any, I can do that for you. If you are covered in these, let me know so I can start my purge on them.

I think you can only paste pictures here, not videos. It's not like Facebook. I can picture it, although the noise would drive me crazy. Larry sometimes watches You Tube videos on TV. The howling dogs drive me nuts. I tell him that's enough or turn the volume way down. Sometimes I wonder if the dogs are singing along or howling because the noise drives them crazy too. Their ears are more sensitive than ours.

Debi I really need free rain...It is dry here in Texas and running the sprinkler system is driving my water bill shy high. I was never very good at typing even through my mother insisted that I take a typing class in high school. I'm doing fairly well getting photos taken. I think I'm maybe half finished ... About 100+ pictures so far.

If I post the write-ups in the type font "ARIAL" can you cut and paste that font to your web pages? Or, do I need to change the front to something else to keep your work to a minimum? I'm hoping that the Pages program on my new computer will open the Microsoft Word program pages that I've made on the old computer. This "Old To New" thumb drives operation I go through is a real headache the works at times but not at others.

You should put your bunny on the page with the hen. They have the same finish. I lucked out and found the hem on eBay while checking out HONs.

Judy, free rein, not free rain. LOL As in let the horses run free with no reins. I'm not going to be much help at all. I have this rabbit made in the same treatment as the hen, but I don't have the hen. I do have one of the original Swedish pale blue bird on branch with nest salts (H&J 939). It's on a Sweden catalog page. Bought a pair from Sweden in December 2006 and Ed Bowman got one from me so whoever got the pale blue one from his collection has it now. I have a couple others on these pages but not any china ones and I'm sure you have the glass ones covered.

Lynda, Hope your family comes through this OK. Tough times for many in this pandemic.

Jan, green salt added. Thank you.

Also anti-inflamitory in case it is joint/bone/tendon pain. Both Jessica and Charlie push thru their pain as they have no choice. Jessica is getting P T and Charlie is waiting to see if surgery is in his future.

Judy, your dedication to research is amazing.

“Open salt,” never been my favorite term. When I showed my first salt to an elderly neighbor, she identified it as a salt cellar. Everything I can find points to collectors coining the term, “open salt.” I am still trying to discover when this term came into use.

Lynda, I’m sorry. We hurt when our loved ones do. Hugs.

We are going to vet. Jessica's front tire has a hole in it.Charlie, my son in law has a kidney stone. They have no money. Both took off from work which they can't afford to do.
(Charlie will go back to work after he fixes tire. If fixable) Please pray for them. This dog is such a love, I'm hurting for them, I want to cry, but they'll feel even worse. Sorry for unloading on you guys.

Lynda I started this HON thing by separating them by what the basket bases looked like. Basket weaves here, ribbed there, and crosshatch designs in a different area. Then I looked for Makers marks.

   Hi y'all, rainy day Sunday here. Hope you had a great day. I visited my grandbabies.
   Joan, beautiful back yard. Love that you have 4 dogs. When we lived in Keystone we had 5 dogs. Course they were all Peaks. Smooch them all together they'd make 1 Goldie.
   Nancy D. Those are beautiful doubles. They look like they are related to Battersea salts.
   Huh, OPEN SALT..... interesting question. I like the term as it is discriptive. It let's me know the item is not a shaker.
   Judy, I have covered hens but have no idea who is old or new.
   Salt of the day = a weird double. A egg cup with it's own salt dip.

Nancy D: Pictures that won't enlarge here is because they are small to begin with. If they are small on your computer, phone or whatever, then they won't get bigger here. I think the thumbnails shown here are 200 pixels wide. If the pictures were only saved by you at 200 pixels there is no little border around them and they are already full size. If they are larger than 200 pixels wide then they have a small border around them and they will enlarge. BTW, I read or heard somewhere that these thin metal enameled salts were Persian, or from that area in the Middle East.

Joan: I don't have any information on where or when the term "open salt" started. I imaging it was collectors or dealers to differentiate between shakers and dishes. Your pond and back yard look nice and private. Wish our yard was more private. It's open to a court or cul-de-sac and we can't put up privacy fencing in this sub.

Judy: Let me know when you are finished with your work on those H&J pages and we'll give you free rein. I don't have many covered hens at all. Just one cobalt EE hen I probably bought directly from Ed Bowman.

Nancy V., The word "covered" never bothered me, as there are many catalog documented covered salts. What I always wondered is exactly when and by whom the term "open" was first added in front of salts. When I look at "old" catalog pages, I find the words individual salt, table salt, salt dip, celery salt, salt dish, etc. but the term "open" in front of salt does not appear. At first I thought "open" may have come into play when salt shakers were first introduced in order to differentiate the two. But catalog pages that picture both still identified them as a salt, individual salt, etc. and salt shakers appear mostly just as a "shaker". If you search eBay for salts from the UK, France, etc. they mostly write their title descriptions as salt, salt cellar, salt dip, salt dish or salters, and use open salt to a much lesser degree. Was "Open" Salts a term coined in the US? Possibly by a collector? Judy and Jan...you guys are both stellar researchers, do you have any info on where "open" first came from or was first used? And Debi, I know you wrote the article "You Collect What" with a lot of great info on salts, but did you ever find any info on the word open being added to salts? I'm sure it started to differentiate salts from shakers, but it would be interesting to know if there are any older glass catalogs that started using open salts as an identifier or it is strictly a term used by collectors and it just stuck. Kind of like how collectors call some pattern glass by different names.

Thanks Ladies. Because of the lockdowns this spring and summer I imagine gardening kept many from getting cabin fever. Don't know what will keep people occupied this winter if there are more lockdowns. Right now New Jersey's positive testing rate is the highest in the nation...not something to be proud of.

Good to know that Shirley Smith published a second edition. I have her first book on Glass Hen on Nest Covered Dishes and agree that it is a wealth of information and one of the most complete reference books I have ever run across. Can't wait to see your pictures and research notes Judy.

My salt of the day is a Capodimonte double and pictured in the OSC Plate 662.

For about two months I've been researching H&J Pages 62 and 63 -- The pages with swans, chicks and other birds and the one page with a mess of hens on nests (HON). I've found a great book on disc "Glass Hen on Nest Covered Dishes" Identifications & Value Guide Second Edition by Shirley Smith. The author did a fantastic job on HON's in all sizes made by manufactures in the U.S. and overseas. I'm taking pictures now of the salts I have and I have much of the writing done.

That brings me to the EE Hens...I have 2 of them and have been on the the lookout for one made be Wetzel. So I look at every one that I see on eBay. There is a seller on eBay that has been offering reproductions of newer art glass salts for some time. If you're interested in an EE salt be sure it is marked with Ed's "EE" on the bottom or "Wetzel" on the bottom rim. The NEW REPROs usually have a start price in the $5 range. Old one's sell for much higher.

Susie, Congrats on your mini hen find. I think these cute little guys are becoming quite scarce. I seldom see them on eBay anymore and when I do they are going for a hefty price. I purchased several from Ed when he first introduced them and have since sold all but one medium blue iridescent. I like the color of yours.

Debi, The problem is we have four dogs. If we let the two little guys in the backyard with us, who are happy to lay down in a shady spot, the Goldens sit on the deck and cry until we let them join us. And then we don't get anything done because they all start running through the flower beds chasing one another. And two Goldens can really reek havoc on small plants and freshly mulched beds. So now we wait and let them all out in late afternoon when we are done working and can focus on keeping them from getting too rambunctious. The attached picture is part of the gardens that surround our pond.

Joan: You mean the dogs don't help you in the yard? Ours used to get in the middle of everything even stealing rakes and hand tools. Or is that why they stay inside?

I supposed those pegged salts could fit in a pair of separate holders but my guess is that they were from an ugly double. I bought them years ago from France for a song. They are definitely old and well cut glass.

Nancy V., I have that same blue cut-to-clear pedestal and it is also one of my favorites.

Jan, Jane & Lynda, Thanks, and please feel free to join the "Blue" cut-to-clear club! We always have room for more members!

Debi, Glad you pointed out that you were looking for a double holder for those lovely cut glass salts as I would have never pictured them that way and thought they were just a beautiful pair/set of salts.

Nancy D., Another appropriate picture. It was 45 degrees here this morning and after a very hot summer it does make you feel like staying indoors, on the sofa, under your favorite throw. But alas...fall clean up work in the gardens need to be attended to, so only the dogs will get to occupy the sofa today...bummer!!

My salt(s) of the day are a pair of ruby red glass salts in silver dragon or dolphin holders that are marked "Pairpoint" with a diamond mark and the numbers 4996. If they had cobalt blue liners I fear I would have to lock them down as I would be having a midnight visit from my Big Sis Mary!!

Joan, I agree it could be any type of metal holder, but it really needs to be a double. The cut glass salts have a lot of sparkle on their own so it doesn't need to be shiny silver. I haven't searched for any lately. When I did they were complete with salts and pretty expensive. Yours is a real beauty.

Thanks Nancy, I think you may be right about its age. I just realized how crooked the salt was in the base. It usually stands straight, but I guess I didn't replace it correctly after I cleaned it.

Hey Debi, It just dawned on me that the two "peg" bottom cut glass salts you were looking for bases for may fit into a base similar to the one I just posted. This salt has that same "peg" bottom. Not that I'm planning on giving this one up anytime soon, but just thought I would point it out as you may have been looking for silver bases and a brass or bronze base may be another alternative to search for.

Jan, Looking forward to seeing those six-sided salts. Will be neat if you managed to find the Duncan, Flawless version as well.

Love the old jewel tone blue and purple glass salts. I only have one purple salt and I believe it may have been irradiated.

Have no idea the age of my salt of the day, but it's a pretty blue cut-to-clear glass with the base being a heavy brass or bronze that is marked Austria.

Nancy D's picture this morning is very appropriate for these scary times. Please keep our President, First Lady and our country in your prayers.

Linda, the design argues for the piece being fairly recent. These cloisonné pieces are seldom identified with a particular maker, maybe just country of origin, somewhere in Asia. Probably not made as a salt.

this is one of the smallest I've seen, its about 7/8 inch tall, enameled all over. If anyone has a clue who made it and when I'd appreciate the information

Joan, I adore that black and white salt! I've never seen one in person. And Jane, what a pretty red flowered clear one. Don't tempt me. Off to watch my Met opera of the day, Marriage of Figaro with two singers I like. I watch one almost every day.

The blue at bottom left in front of the case is a different shape, six-sided cuts with fluted cuts below. I've had these in various colors, only the blue remaining.

I yearned for one of the Webb cameos for years, had seen a number of them in a posh shop in London's Camden Passage, including a three colored one. Much too expensive until I found this one, a little plain for the type, but really lovely, and I like the red.

Here's a picture of the little glass case with my many colored six-sided gems. Some are round and some oval.

Almost forgot to post my salt of the day. It's a "black" salt with pate-sur-pate work (a type of composite layering technique), circa 1870-1890, and pictured in plate 567 of The Salt Compendium. It has a different face on each of the three sides.

Lovely examples of the little 6-sided gems. I've never had one in black and those are smashing. I'll try for a picture of my case of them later. All I can think of to put next is a different version of a flowered salt, Webb cameo maybe.

Jan, You have such a good eye for details. I may have picked up on the size difference of that clear salt, but probably would have missed the difference in the rays of the flower. Neat too how some are frosted and others are not. And love, love, love all you black glass salts.

Debi, We don't have Jan's black six-sided rectangular pictured in the H&J Project #617. Do you have enough room to add it, or if not at least add black to the list of known colors? Sorry that I'm asking you to do more work, and for Jan as well as she will probably need to take a single picture, but it's always so exciting to find another version of a salt and make the project info even more accurate and complete.

Judy, Thanks for letting me know that the frosted flower salt also comes in clear. I have now added it to my wish list. Love your black version of H&J 344. It’s a shame so few salts were made in black glass as I think the ones that were look very classy. According to the H&J project info on 344, its maker is unknown. I found a smaller version of this salt with a “Made in Czechoslovakia” label. Maybe it’s a clue as to where his big brothers were made?

Lynda, I wonder if that Nevada was hand decorated by someone. Green isn't a likely stain color. The little decorations on the side don't look like amateur work though. This is a puzzling salt.

Judy love all those colors. The only one I could add is vaseline. Red and purple are hard to find.

Thanks for the correction, Jan. I was torn between Washington and Virginia and thought a far western state less likely. I think there was some controversy about the name for that salt anyway. I was wrong to try to go on hazy memory instead of going to look it up.

Should have said, mine are Scalloped 6 Point, Nevada, and Diamond & Fan. Most ruby stained ones are rare, but the Diamond and Fan turned out to be fairly available. I sold a few for high prices back in the day, recently bought a couple for very low cost for myself because I've always liked them.

True, Judy. I don't spend much time looking through eBay for salts now, but I have seen the same ugly salt or two listed at 3-4 hundred dollars for month after month. Seems they would get the message.

I looked through my few pattern salts to see what I could find. I like stained patterns and had a picture of three ruby stained ones.

  Nancy V, I seemed to flow from one type salt to another as time went by. I flowed from clear glass individuals, to colored salts to intaglios to art glass but for me 'always' was the master pedestals.
