These followed me home because of the beautiful salts which have been shared lately by Perfumer. I have always had a thing for Rubina Verde, cranberry with Vaseline and any combination of those two colours plus opalescent glass. Until now I have managed to keep myself to shades in these colours for the most part but..... Then I saw these and the pieces I will add next.
My question is do you believe these to be made in England or are they Bohemian works of art? I am eagerly awaiting the completion of my kitchen so I can use these at our next proper dinner. It would be fun to know more about them.
Is that raspberry shaped prunt any indication of maker? What does it tell us, if anything besides being a mistake, that when the rod was cracked off there is a hole and that is now covered by the prunt? I would think that it was perhaps a bad day for someone but the other salt is exactly the same. Is this a clue? Oh I do hope it is. ;o) There are two applied rows of rigaree one forms the top ruffle and the second provide the ring which holds the salt up in the little plain plated frame.
Thank you for anything you can share with me. I am tickled pink with these delicate little jewels. Thank too to perfumer, who opened my eyes to these lovely little pieces.
Oh one more question? Am I using the correct term for the raspberry which is placed on the bottom? Is it indeed a prunt? I know that is the term used for decorative little additions when they are on the body of a vase or such. I am just not sure if this would also be considered a prunt. Ta very much.
