For sale is a lovely gold iridescent salt made by Tiffany Studios, New York. This footed style of a Tiffany salt is one of the harder shapes to find especially with the ribbing. I have only seen a handful of these through the years. The salt stands 1 1/2" tall and is 2 1/4" in diameter.
The salt has a very strong gold iridescence with strong fuchsia and blue highlights. The top lip shows a nice platinum blue color against a gold iridescence background. The salt is supported by a round foot. The salt resembles a classical Grecian urn shape. There is heavy vertical ribbing throughout and inside the bowl has some of the strongest blue platinum Gold Favrile color once can imagine. There are 8 of these vertical ribs. This salt is similar to some Steuben Gold Aurene salts I have seen as well.
The salt is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The Gold Favrile, Aurene is simply outstanding!! The salt is signed on the bottom L.C.T. for "Louis Comfort Tiffany". You commonly find the flat ruffled and salts with pigtails but these round footed salts that have this heavy ribbing are not that commonly found.
Those of you who collect salts and want a hard to find example in excellent condition look no further. This salt will enhance any art glass salt collection. I have provided a black and white photo of the different salts that Tiffany offered from a wholesale sheet. This particular salt shape is located top right 3rd salt to the left. I believe this price of $5-$7 was for a serving of 6 but not absolutely sure. This salt was made 1902-1910.
