ITEM 7508. PATTERN MOLDED SALT CELLAR, checkered diamond pattern, vibrant cobalt blue, ogee-shaped bowl with drawn stem and applied foot, pontil scar, 2 7/8"H, sheared, tooled and fire polished rim, a mint salt with a weakened impression. Blown at John Amelung's New Bremen Glassmanufactory, New Bremen, MD., 1785-1795, rare.

Although not strongly impressed, this checkered diamond salt is one of very few objects that can be attributed with confidence to Amelung. The salt's color and form are outstanding and there is no damage. Of interest is that a checkered diamond salt sold in excess of $10K at a recent Green Valley auction.
