Table of Contents
In many ways, Open Salts are the ideal collectible. They are plentiful, most are reasonably priced, and there are so many, many unique patterns! However, over a century has passed since Open Salts were commonly used. This makes identification all the more challenging, since old catalogs reprints & other forms of documentation are quite scare.
Fortunately the authors of this book have done an outstanding job of identification, making the passion of the collector/ dealer so much easier, by their exhaustive treatment of this topic. This fine reference includes thousands of salts pictured, as well as an accompanying item number, which is correlated to the description. The description, in turn, provides attribution to maker, measurement, pattern name, and year of make.
Also included as such things as a Pattern Index, Open Salts in Color, Index to Makers & Types & more. Some of the key sections are outlined below:Round Shapes Pressed Oval Shapes Pressed Square Shapes Pressed Rectangular Pressed Assorted Shapes Footed Salts Pedestal Based Salts Unusual Shapes Cut Glass Salts Intaglio Salts Crystal Master Salts Victorian Novelties Animal Shaped Salts Double Salts (European & American) Sterling Plated Pewter Salts Pottery Salts Milk Glass China Mistaken Identities Much, Much More!
