This "salt dish" has a pedestal base and a flared scalloped edge. An example of this form is shown in "The Glass Industry in Sandwich, Volume 5" by Barlow and Kaiser. While described as a salt, the authors feel this was not a practical use, and this may have been intended for some other purpose, such as a posy holder.

Size: Approximately 3.5" high, 3.75" top diameter

Condition: Mold roughness at edges of base, small flake on end of one petal. No other chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
