Old Glass Salts


Old Glass Salts

The use of salt cellars was documented in classical Rome and they continued to be used up until the first half of the 20th century. Usage began to decline with the introduction of free flowing salt in 1911, and cellars were almost entirely replaced by salt shakers. Our original, pressed glass Victorian and Edwardian salts are now popular again especially for sea salt.
Salt spoon not included but we have a selection to buy instore.

The prominent 19th and 20th century manufacturers in the north east is area included Davidson & Sowerby in Gateshead, Greener in Sunderland, Heppell in Newcastle and Edward Moore in South Shields amongst others.
They produced wide ranges of pressed glass products and different manufacturers are often identifiable by their designs, factory or registration marks. Sadly none of these manufacturers exist today but much of the old pressed glass we have on offer is their legacy.
