19th century, egg cup or open salt cellar in light amber glass pedestal nine-paneled bowl with three rows of design which reflect into the inside of the bowl. 2" X 2 1/2". Impressed star on base, good shelf wear, Free of chips, cracks and repairs. Possibly Anglo-Irish, having similar form to other examples. However, it is noted by Judy Lacasa: "The second edition of “The Country House Salts Exchange” came out, and I just had to have this one. I called, and am sending a check for this, which I decided to write up in advance, as I am just now doing a few of the preceding ones. This is a very unusual one, and herewith is the commentary in the Smiths’ book. In fact, this is the very salt that is pictured in the book. “An interesting Boston and Sandwich light amber glass pedestal salt. Note that the style of the rim is somewhat unusual in a salt and also that the color is a slightly different shade of amber. The story goes that these pieces were originally intended to be egg cups but because there became an over supply of egg cups it was decided to turn down the rim and call them salts. It is a lovely piece with scalloped base and, when one peeks under the rim, one finds a nine-paneled bowl with three rows of design which reflect into the inside of the bowl.” Can’t wait to see it!"
