Vintage Atterbury Master Salt - Old Opal Glass - Milk Glass - 1870's.

This very old Atterbury master salt is a really nice one. There are two Patent dates on the bottom. June 30th, (18)74, and March 23rd, (18)75. The pattern is basketweave with rope handles, rope and scalloped top edging, spool swirl stem and a top rayed foot. Lots of patterns going on, on a small item.

Atterbury was out of business by 1903 so this piece is somewhere between 110 and 137 years old.

The condition is excellent, no chips, cracks, scratches, or repairs. There are two manufacturing blemishes. Along the inside of the top scalloped rim there is a bit of light surface gray on four of the scallops. Probably some ash residue that was deposited there when the pieces was made. ( pictured ) The second is a sandy feel in the bottom of the salt bowl. I thought it was a bit of salt clinging but no, it is in the glass. Actually, not too bad when you consider the conditions glass was made under in the 1800's and the age of the salt.

The size is 3-3/4" wide from outside handle to outside handle. The salt bowl is 2-3/4" OD and 2-1/4" ID. 2-1/2" Tall

Reference: "5000 Open Salts" by William Heacock and Patricia Johnson. Picture on page 218; #4466 description, page 269.

This master salt is somewhat scarce. I have seen the individual salt in this pattern from time to time but not this master salt.

Don't let it get away!

Thanks for looking.
