Hi Lisa,
You might already know about these publications but they are the only ones I know of. The first is a large book called "5,000 Open Salts" by William Heacock and Patricia Johnson. My current copy is copyrighted 1982. I don't know if there is a more current version. Inside the cover is printed "Additional copies may be ordered from: Patricia Johnson, P.O. Box 1221, Torrance, CA 90505." Again I don't know if that is a current address or not. I found the book for sale on Amazon.There is a set of 8 or 9 books written by someone names Smith. I have some of the books but we moved recently and they have not been unpacked. I also found listings on the internet: http://opensalts.us/References/Books/Books.html. Hope this helps.

Hello, Lisa. You may want to join Open Salt Collectors of the World Facebook page. You can post photos there to ask for assistance ID’ing the salts you will be selling. An excellent resource for you would also be “5,000 Open Salts” by Heacock and Johnson. This book has many, many salts and is easy to use to find pressed pattern glass, etc. if the collection includes more rare salts, Art Glass, etc., you might like to look for a copy of “The Open Salt Compendium.” Keep in mind the book prices capture a moment in time. Since you are in the business you surely know that most antiques are in a down market right now. This is where the Facebook page will come in handy. You can ask us where the market is, as well as ask about salts you can’t find in the reference books. How exciting for you! We will all be interested to see what you have for sale!

I own Antiques & More at Staley Road in Champaign IL. I have a client that collected Salts from all over the world. Her collection is vast and there are probably 1000 in the collection. I am looking for some help in identifying the different salts. I am wondering if there is anyone that can direct me to some resources or help me in any way. These will be for sale as soon as the research is done also. Thank you and I hope to hear from someone soon. My email is antiquesandmore606@gmail.com and the store number is 217-351-3488

Kathy, if you are on Facebook, I would suggest you post this information in the group that is called Open Salts: Buy, Sell or Trade. You will likely get a wider response, as it seems we have all migrated to FB. Best of luck!

I own 8 carmen/red open intaglio salt dips/cellars. All from the same house. I have had them for few years, now want to sell them as a lot. A couple have small chips, and a few are marked with a butterfly. I know carmen/red glass is always a little more pricey than other colors, as I collect glass and other antiques. Is anyone interested in purchasing the set, email me at Teach0314@aol.com with an offer. I will have a friend take pictures that I will send at that time. All resonable offers considered.

Hi all, Whitley Auctions, Florida, is selling Elaine Cooper's salts. "Worth Their Salt: The Open Salts Collection of Elaine Cooper" The first group are for sale on January 19th and contain the best items from her collection. Many of the items for sale are in her book, Daulton Open Salts. I do not know when they will sell the remaining salts. Enjoy!
