I have a wooden case full of the semi-precious material salts that I've brought from Brenda(30 or more) did I show you guys the picture, when I did a program on them? I LOVE them, and even two of the same material, are different!

I love my set of silver viking ship with paddle spoon and pepper horn. I think pictures have already been posted.

Just found they aren't there. Here's a picture, and I found another couple of silver salts.

Lynda, you didn’t copy me, you have a great shot of the pepper horns. They are overlooked a lot. I just thought our friends might have forgotten about the box I showed. I do have a few of the boats with matching horns, but they are hard to find. I will try to photograph them when, and if, I can find them and get to them.

People in areas that are fairly clear so far might consider getting set to nest in place as soon as you can because it's coming down the road. My daughter brought me a large load of groceries that I thought was excessive, but now I'm happy I have it. Many basic supplies are no longer on the shelf, and my apartment complex just confined everyone to his or her apartment. Meals and even mail will be delivered to our doors. That's how bad it is in Dallas. If people confine themselves before the virus gets near, maybe some of the explosion can be averted. Read about Italy where they did almost nothing until things got really bad.

I hope you are all staying home and ordering things delivered. Yes, people are hoarding store items, and wearing masks and gloves isn't as silly as it may look. Unfortunately, I've read that the masks available are of no use with this virus. Gloves do make sense because the virus lives on hard surfaces. Do listen to the good sources and avoid contact with others as much as you can. Here in Texas people are being very careful. I live in a senior independent living apartment complex and we are almost completely should down--no outside visitors except for necessary services , even family, and all group activities cancelled within the facility.

Pretty sure 122 is Royal Doulton, not Sowerby. Slater patent. I thought the gold surface was just gilded, not metal, but I'm not going to scratch it to see.

I'm amazed at the variety here and loving it. Some of the stone salts are lovely. I think I had a flourite one once, but I'd never have let those dark blue stone ones go.

Linda: Your #122 is Doulton, not Sowerby. It's just a gold paint finish on the pottery. I've seen a few over the years where the gold was wearing off. Your salt looks like new. Your #141-142 I heard were from the Middle East, like Iran, Iraq, or maybe Turkey. Looks like you did well in the auction, lots of new pretties.

Thanks Jane. I wish I could find out more about it. Obviously there are no photographs from the 16th and 17th centuries, but I have searched several times and can't find anything helpful on what a medieval table setting would look like. I don't know what museums here in the US would be good at evaluating them. There is a language barrier with European museums.

French enamel over copper. I believe this pair was at one time part of a centerpiece that probably included a candle holder. The enameling is similar to other salts in museums that date back to the 16th and 17th centuries.

  I am shocked at the amount of non glass, china, pottery, sterling salts there are. I HAVE #99, KAYERZINN pewter. Huh, interesting. Now I have to figure out how to have that piece labeled, when I get it unpacked.

I see the same 7 animals. I've been trying to figure out what might be missing but no luck so far. Was there a dog and a lamb or is that the same one? Or a duck and a swan, or the same one? I used to have them but don't any more.

Lynda, Oneida sold several animal salts in the ‘60’s. My in-laws gave us a few for an Anniversary. Other animals are a snail, fox, hen, and swan. There probably are others that I cannot remember..

Yes, Debi, you probably got the candy salt from me. I have another, I think. All I can remember was that a woman came, only once, to a meeting of either OSCAR, NEOSC, or joint meeting many years ago. She said something about making The candy salts from using her real salts as molds. A novelty, indeed.

Thanks Jane. it seems, if the person I got it from was truthful, that it used to be in a museum in Switzerland, and when the museum closed, someone in the US bought most of the contents, and this dealer got several of these smaller pieces. I know he had some reeeeealllly nice pieces. This was about the only one I could afford
