Hi Diane - if you can tell us approximately where you are located, that would help. And perhaps an estimate of the number of salts you have. Thanks!

Hi Judy & thanks for your Post, however I'm really not into salts, but just trying to determine if the Ripley/Duncan pattern "LillY" Master Salt had a Patterned Companion individual salt for the sake of simply being correct. We've been going to the WVMAG on & off for the last 30 years. We are some 400 miles & 6 hours away so we are hardly frequent visitors since our traveling days have become extremely limited. Thanks again, Jim

Judy Johnson here - logged in as the web master so I can delete the occasional spam. Jim, did you know that there are two cases of open salts at WVMAG? We (salt collectors) had a meeting there a number of years ago to dedicate the two cases to Ed & Kay Berg, the King & Queen of Open Salts. Are you located in that area? You really should join one of the clubs - or all of them! And get our national newsletter! (Enable, enable, enable....)

Hi again for your conversation, which is so encouraging at solving this Glass Mystery or anomaly's as well as furthering and refining Glass research. I do not believing in taking 50 years of glass experiences and taking it to my grave as it benefits absolutely NO ONE. So all my papers will go to TOM FELT at the WVMAG who is the archivist among other things. Since we are about 10 to 11 generations removed from the Major Glass Industry of yesteryear there are only a handful or two Glass workers who can reflect on the Golden era of Glass making. So it's up to us Glassies to salvage as well help create pattern history where it no longer exists.............See I am truly Glasscrazie

Well now Nina you have peeked my interest - I shall look carefully in the H&J and also the Smith books - Jim - hang in there - we ain't through until we just can't look at another page of salts - and that seldom happens - Well it does for me because I have a tendency to forget what I looked at in the first hundred pages - There are 10 Smith books - Not much information but would at least let us know there is one -- As long as I do not have to do any research and can just look at pictures I am good to go - I leave the heavy duty research to Nina and others more capable and willing - Soooo check back in a couple of days - oh right the Smith books - okay in a week--Fun talking to you and glad you stopped by - Nina I will be interested in what you find even if it is a different pattern but similar --

Mary...! You are so funny! I’m gonna try to find that rectangular individual. You don’t normally find a master and individual in different basic shapes though. So it is probably a different pattern all together.

I think there may be an individual with that design around the base, but it is a footed rectangular salt. I’ll have to check to see if I have one.

Hi Mary, So Join the Club & I'll put you in charge of CHAOS that way confusion will be soooooo much easier to conquer. Anyway are there really any YOUNG GLASSIES???? I learned everything through the Glass School of Hard Knocks, chips & flakes, so I figured by weeks end I'll know all there is to know about GLASS.......Oh yeah Rots of Ruck. That was some 50 years ago and still haven't found the Glass handle of Everything. So as my name reflects I know a lot about Glass in general but not enough to be proficient in any one category & will always bow to experienced individual collector & why I went to the OSC Board for the answer to my ????? And I thank everyone for helping me out, Jim

Not that I know of Jim - I think only the pedestal style - Could be wrong - but I have never seen one in all of my collecting and have been doing it for a few days - Sorry about the confusion - Guess I thought you were showing us a spooner or other table accessory and asking if that style and pattern was made in a salt - I am old and confuse easily --- among other things

It is shown in the H&J as number 3538 - Listed as STIPPLED SCROLL or SCROLL - Duncan 1880 The one they show as a salt is 2 3/8" high and has a 2 1/2" diameter - Best I can do - and yes Nina I think there was one but cannot remember how far back

I think there was a salt very similar to that in Ed and Kay Berg’s collection. What do you consider the piece you posted? I can determine size from the photo.
