This type of open salt cellar is known as Mercury Glass. It is rather light in weight. There are 3 applied hand blown glass feet with each having a slightly ball-tipped end. It is listed in the OSC book on page 93, plate 273, and it is listed circa 1850-1900. Measuring 1" tall and 1-3/4" wide. First discovered in early nineteenth-century Germany, mercury glass was used as an inexpensive and tarnish-free alternative for objects such as silver candlesticks, vases and goblets...

Heavy ols glass creamer and sugar set with hand blown applied handles. Silver overlay design of flowers and vines. Sugar measures 2 1/8" tall, and creamer is2 7/8" tall. I have noticed where the handle has been applied on the sugar, is a chip look area. This was definately done when the handle was applied during the making of this piece, as it looks like they buffed it smooth. The bottom edges are cut and polished. These were quality pieces from a higher end glass company.

They are 4 1/2" tall and each are hand painted with a single flower...
