Early American Patteren Molded Salt

Year: 20th century - early 21st century

Weight:0.05 lbs

Unuasual 18 rib early American salt.This salt was made from clear non lead glass that has an opalesant look to the glass.Id say is an early piece,possible late 18th century.Not typical Mid Western looking piece so I only can guess it was made somewhere in the Mid Atlantic area of the U.S.State.There is a small finger nail shaped chip that someone tried to repair long ago.It would make a good study piece or a rare example of a early salt one ive never seen.Maybe someone out there knows more.I bought this from Arlene Palmer.If my memory serves me well she was unsure of its origin also but speculated the Philadelphia area.
