This color was a runner up for a MOSS anniversary salt. The shape is the same but the color that won was the bright lime green.

Judy, my Crider blue carnival is my favorite and best one. The color on them is outstanding. I don't have white on mine.

Jan, everything about your little piece says "French" to me. I suspect it's a toy piece, looks like a toy goblet.

A friend pointed point it out to me the top square salt in the photo we've been discussing isn't Fostoria #93 because Fostoria #93 was not introduced until 1898 and the photo says these were advertised in 1892.

  I love those honeycomb salts. I think of them as faceted diamonds. I can't believe that 3rd salt is in H/J. I missed it. I often miss the salts near the crease. They just don't make it into my line of site.
   Debi, are you going to post a monthly topic for us to show our pictures? We could do salts in holders???? There are a lot of those.

I think people put salts like No. B into holders they were never made to have. You can see that the salt doesn't seat perfectly in the holder.

Judy, there were many foreign makers of salts like No. B, but I'm pretty sure only Fostoria made it in the USA. I've never seen it in any other USA catalog. I think the salts Butler Bros is advertising on that page are USA manufactured salts. I agree about the square one though. Could have been several different companies.

Inez I'm very reluctant to say that No. A or B is Fostoria. There were so many of these salts made that fit the picture and very general description. I have No. C but so far I've not found the manufacturer. Mine is 2 13/16" in diameter at the base, 1 13/16" at the top, 1 1/4" high.

Inez, I don't think "C" is Fostoria. It is H&J 2922 (a page we have not done for the H&J Project) but Heacock says it is an unknown maker and I agree since I have not seen it in any catalogs. I think I have every known open salt and nut cup made by Fostoria on the Fostoria reference page.

I did find that the Fostoria #93 was introduced in 1898 and discontinue in 1909. The Fostoria #95 was also introduced in 1892, but discontinued in 1910.

Butler Brothers, not Barker. Yes, that #B is Fostoria #95. It is shown in their 1898 catalog. The #A is Fostoria #93. With Butler Brothers they may not all be from the same maker, unless they call them an assortment, which in this case they are not. So only #C is elusive so far. I have many of the Fostoria books, including the series from the club. My earliest resource for Fostoria is 1897 and is for their opal items. Thanks!!!!

   Hi everyone.
   So nice to see you Inez. When I saw your catalog page I immediately thought FOSTORIA. Go to the referance page for FOSTORIA and see if you agree. The last picture, I'm lost on but wish I had it. I love the shape.
   Nancy D, love the kitty. I dearly enjoy animal pictures. Almost as much as pictures of salts. Lolololol I'm missing Judy

   All those Mosers are so pretty. Such outstanding work. Enamel on cranberry glass is always a hit.
   Hi, everyone. Hope you are all doing well.
   I have these strange pieces. These have lines of.... purple(?) I also have the short one with no color added. At 1st I thought it was a cut down piece but it keeps showing up in other collections. So I guess the rim is supposed to look ground down. Strange little piece.

Thanks for the American penny licks, Nancy. I'm sure that is the bowl shape someone here was thinking of. The English one wouldn't hold a lot more, just a longer, thinner bowl.

Here is my ice-cream, old English one called a "penny dip." At least, it was sold to me in England as such. Someone on this site said not long ago that it doesn't have a bowl small enough, because they held only one tiny scoop. It is small, only about 3" tall. What ever mine is, I like it, and the lavender color is pretty.

Lynda, I love all the melon salts. The one at far left back row is the only Wavecrest one. I like it because it's harder to find, but the ones with smooth sides are really prettier. I have the one with pansies and the gilded prunis blossoms.

   Judy, Are these your salts? You are blowing my mind. When I think of you, my mind immediately goes to glass pattern girl. You have some very choice sub-collections. I love it. Your Wave-crest is making me drool. I have wanted for years, to get some melon salts. I haven't found any til recently. I've gotten a number from Mary. Thank you Mares. I had a few but now I have a variety.
   Nancy V, it does sadden me when the decoration gets worn off. It happens on these melons and on any with the gold embellishment. Guess we need to figure a way to handle them differently and leave the decoration intact.

Judy, your Wavecrest salt is in nicer condition than mine. My background color is faded almost away, and there is some wear to the dainty little flowers. I think this is the only Wavecrest salt shape, except possibly for a simple rectangular one the has been identified but I've never seen.

Thank you, Carhy. I thought it was Nina but was not sure. I think your totem pole one is wood,
is it not? The other one is of the composite that I wrote about. I think you are privileged to have the original with the totem pole. Nevertheless, they are both lovely.

Hi, everyone!

I’ve been following the BOMA salt discussion and will toss in my 2 cents worth. I have both of the First Peoples salts along with their spoons. The one on the left (the totem pole one) came from Harrison Hot Springs in British Columbia; I bought it in August 2006. The one on the right (the seal) came from Nina Robertson in March 2007 after she purchased a bunch to sell to those of us who were interested.

 The name Boma, jogged my memory. I believe that is the company that our friend was able to get the salts from. I looked up the website, and they don’t seem to have any of the salts, but they did use a material named Argillite to make museum quality reproductions. That material mimics wood. Perhaps some one of the lurkers could at least tell us who the collector was that was able to obtain the sets many of us have.

Thanks for all the information, Nancy D. I bought mine on line I think, no clear memory though I haven't had it very long. If I bought it in a shop I'd probably remember. I have about 4 other wood salts, and this one feels very different and is heavy for wood. I see a very even grain on the base. I don't know enough about various woods to be sure what this one is, certainly no knowledge of what wood Eskimos used.

It came with a spoon, looks like pewter, and has a totem pattern.

Nancy V, as for the way the Eskimo salts were made, I think it matters when and where you bought the salt. Those who actually bought theirs in Alaska or Canada before the ‘70’s, (a guess on timeline.) you would probably have the handcrafted wood ones. There must be clues on those such as initials or feel of real wood. I know mine are composition because there was a discussion about them being sold in souvenir shops maybe 15 years ago. Can’t remember who said they could get us some, my guess is, Nina or Judy. Those that wanted them paid the one who offered and there were just two designs. I got both and they came in a plastic see through box. I will try to get to mine and photo them. It might give information on the box.

This is my Eskimo salt. It is composite. Several years back, there was a discussion about these. Someone in the OSCAR club had connection to get a few and several of us bought them. There were two styles and I bought one of each. I think the originals were wood, like Judy’s.

  Judy, I am thrilled to see the groups. Helps me on my quest. Thank you for posting them. I don't think a lot of collectors realize there are salts out there that are the "same but different." It's an eye opener.
  Nancy D, Sunday kitty looks so smug. That face and those words go together so well. Got a good chuckle. How is Ken? Is he behaving himself?
  Too bad we can't get a book going with all these pictures and the H/J project. With 700 salt collectors out there, per F B numbers, they would sell. And there are collectors that arn't on F B that would buy. Even the EAPG group would get some. Oh well, dreams.
  Salt of the day, I've fallen in love with these enameled salts. This one is Murano. But there are Czech made also. The difference is in the leaves. Murano has no off shoots of veins, where the Czech has distinct veining.

Nancy D, that pretty salt with the cabochons is done in the Moser style, but it's a copy. The give-away is that around the raised cabochons there are gold paint patterns I'd call squiggles instead of the Moser typical raised enamel designs. Various pieces can be found on eBay, often listed as Moser. Just look at the decoration around the cabochons to tell the difference. There are other subtle differences, but I've found this the easiest to spot. I hope this picture is clear enough to show the enamel work.

Good morning everyone. Have a wonderful day!

Praying for Lynda’s family. Sounds as if they are on the right track.
My Ken, is doing well but still trying to do more than he should. I spoke to him several times and his spirit is good.

   Nancy D, I love the cat talk, too funny. How is Ken?
   My daughter is at the school having a meeting about the girls. They are using every avenue to help these 2 girls behave and feel self worth. They will be going to Church and working a soup kitchen in Gainesville, to help them understand the world and their choices. Please keep praying for them.
    Thank you so much for your prayers. You are helping heal my broken heart too.

Excellent cat message today, Nancy D!

Here are three old favorites, partly because of memories of finding them in street markets and tiny antique shops in England. Two Royal Worcester and a tiny Clarice Cliff.

Good morning everyone. I guess everyone was enjoying a lovely Sunday. No posts at all yesterday. Perhaps things are finally returning to a semblance of normal. I think we all are hoping for that.
Have a great day!

Can the glass molds be used to make pewter figures? This hen on nest is pewter.
I ran across her while looking for other hon's for the H&J project. She sure looks like
she has been made from a Westmoreland old.

   Nancy D, I hope Ken continues to do well. Love the handcuff idea. Thinking of you.
   Can't say much is better or worse here. Morgan is being watched closely and starts therapy Thursday. I still need your prayers for her and thank you so much for taking this wonderful young lady into your hearts.

Good morning everyone. Have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks for the prayers and good thoughts. My son is home and seems to be doing well. I told his girlfriend to have handcuffs ready. He is not a patient guy and will try to be doing something.
Fortunately, he loves to read and I hope his stash of books will keep him quiet.

Thanks for answering, Judy. I'm not a strict believer of many rules, but I tend to think that very few covered dishes of any size were really salts. Even the lovely, expensive covered lacy salts might have just been lid added to a salt by a manufacturer to create a possible different use, but I'm only guessing of course. One thing I do believe is that any collector should be free to include anything in a salt collection that he/she wishes. I have several that would have to have a question mark after salt--like this: salt?

Hi Nancy -- No I don't consider the 4 3/8 inch Hazel Atlas dish a salt. I picked up two of these covered dishes just to have look a-likes to number 952, (The Mexican made green 3 3/8 inch HON). H&J indicated the maker was unknown, but it is very much like the two I have from Hazel Atlas. "Glass Hen on Nest Covered Dishes Identification & Value Guide" by Shirley Smith Indicated the two Hazel Atlas HON's were copied in Mixico.
