I should have known to ask one of my best friends about the glass piece I was questioning on my last post. I have know Peg for 15 years, she has been in the antique business for more than that (but I won't post how long because I love her!). She's one of those people who know just about everything regarding antiques. I emailed her a picture of my find and asked her what it is, here is what she told me:
You have a good eye- you have a master salt- used at the table to fill individual salts. It would have had a small silver spoon with it. Remind me when you come out- I'll give you one. I date it around 1900.
Yea, I love a good find. Even if I don't know what it is at the time!
p.s. School is almost out.... time to start meditating
