This is an antique set of 6 clear cut glass salt dips or open salts in the Honeycomb or Diamond pattern made 1890-1900 in England. Each open salt or salt dip measures .75 inch high by 2 inches in diameter and has 6 sides and a 12 point cut star bottom. This salt is pictured on page 147 of 5000 Open Salts by Heacock and Johnson. The salt dips or salt cellars are in very good ++ condition but they all exhibit wear. There are tiny fleabite chips on all of them on the facet edging or the interior ring and one has a facet point chip. But they are still a neat set of victoriana.
