Hello Mary~
That's quite a bit of interesting information.
Thank you so much.

Hi Trish - Nina was correct that your salt is French - Made by Vallerysthal - Sometimes they were marked with raised lettering inside a bowl but most times not - At one point they were probably in the $50 to $60 range - but salt prices have dropped quite a bit and the price market is more what a buyer is willing to pay than what an item is shown in the books to be worth -

Thank you Nina!
I'm not a collector and this was from a family member's estate.
It took me awhile to ascertain what it even was!
Appreciate your guidance ;-))

Hi, Trish. Your salt is likely Victorian era and if I had to guess it is probably French in origin. It’s a delightful one! Enjoy!

Donna...are you sure about the marking on your yellow one? A "D," inside a heart would be Degenhart, while a, "B," inside a diamond would be Boyd.

I loved the Bird with berry (and without) article in the National Newsletter. I find I have a yellow bird with berry with a heart with a b in it.
The other bird I have has no berry and is ruby red and is a toothpick holder.

There are some three part condiment sets, Joyce. But there are also clear glass items with three bowls in them that were part of desk sets, meant for paper clips and such. Can you post a photo?

I also wondered if it was more of a condiment piece rather than salt. But I just can't find anything similar to it

I wonder if the large piece with the cover is a mustard or a jelly.

OK I read most of it. Very interesting. Thank you. Does this give you any clue about what it's worth?

Actually we just looked again and low and behold we found a very faint WMFB stamping.
