English vintage

  • $ 4800

This is an set of 6 clear cut glass salt dips or open salts in the Honeycomb or Diamond pattern made 1890-1910 in England.

Each open salt or salt dip measures .75 inch high by 2 inches in diameter and has 6 sides and a 12 point cut star bottom.

This salt is pictured on page 147 of 5000 Open Salts by Heacock and Johnson.

The salt dips or salt cellars are in very good ++ used vintage condition but they all exhibit wear. There are tiny fleabite chips on all of them on the facet edging or the interior ring and one has a facet point chip, and there are a couple of tiny bubbles from manufacturing.

But they are still a neat set for tea table or dining table.

Open salts are also currently being repurposed as ring holders, teabag holders and as individual sauce, cream or jam servers. Very versatile!
