Facon de Venise Spanish Footed Salero

A small Spanish Facon de Venise footed salt possible Catalonia, of straw-tint. The bowl is straight-sided with rounded base applied with six scroll handles of alternating blue and straw tint, above a spreading foot with bulbous collar and folded rim.  The bowl did have a lid. Thanks to Hans van der Weijden’s comment and also for sending a picture.  We are now able to show an example with a lid below.  The glass shown with lid is from the Museum for Decorative Arts in Barcelona, Spain.

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Allaire, A few months ago I made this picture in the museum for decorative arts in Barcelona. As you can see the salero (#100) looks like yours and has a lid!

    I enjoy receiving your posts and reading your blog. Thank you, Hans van der Weijden Maastricht, the Netherlands http://www.hansvanderweijden.nl
