Linda R, I have a couple of the little hens that have candles in them, and one has what looks like lip balm. An elderly lady told me she remembers some having candy in them. Like a lot of the early pressed glass covered dishes they sold them to "Packers" who put their own products in them.
I like the old ones, but I really love the Boyd ones with all the variety of color.

Thanks...some have marks, others don't. I just would live to know how they came about, who and how were they used....etc.

There's a whole book dedicated to Hen on Nest Dishes by Shirley Smith. I thought she also had a website but I can't find it now. You could try "googling" it. Also Ed Bowman has some info on his website opensalts.net

Are you able to post pictures of your chicken salts, Linda? That might help us point you in some direction, although, they do come from many sources. As long as you enjoy them, that's the main thing! :-)

Linda ~ the first thing to know about chicken salts is that they've been heavily reproduced for decades and far too many are sold at "old" prices either intentionally or because the person doesn't know how to tell the difference.

Hi, I just discovered sweet little glass chicken salt cellars. I can't seem to find any information on the history of them. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Why are all the beautiful display pieces on the wrong side of The Rockies ----- Nice of you and Donna to pitch in and help though I am sure all three of you wish it were not necessary - m

Hi again Douglas - The original of this was produced circa 1890 by Challinor, Taylor & Co. - It was only made in milk glass and purple slag - All of the colored glass ones are recent productions by Wright - Wright referred to its fish as a toothpick and it well could be that the C T & Co were also originally advertised as toothpicks - The main and easy to spot difference between the two productions - other than the glass colors - is that the old have a slight arch in the middle of the base that only allows the front and the rear to touch the table - Certainly the older version would be quite a bit rarer and have a higher monetary value than the Wright pieces - Right or wrong to purists - they are often listed both as toothpicks and open salts as they fit nicely in either collection - Hope this helps - Mary
