HASH(0x95fb536c) out of 5 stars 5000 Open Salts 3 Jun. 2011
By Maisry - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've already owned two copies of this book, myself,(one signed by one of the authors) and purchased this new copy for a fellow collector of open salts. It's the best reference for the money, and most of us would not be without it. There aren't many reference books for the specific collectible, open salts, and this one is the most comprehensive of all of them. Even the two authors of the beautiful "The Open Salt Compendium" a more modern and better presented book on open salts, would agree. Nina and Sandy developed their book to take up where "5000 Open Salts" left off.

HASH(0x95b09450) out of 5 stars THE BOOK ON SALTS 23 Dec. 2012
By Jeanne Messer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a thorough review of everything you need to know about "salts". My sister has a 200+ collection and found out extensive information in this book that I purchased for her when she was just beginning her collection. She now has an eBay business and has sold over 10,000 items.

Gave the history of salt cellars, big & small, and how and why they were used. The pictures were great and I was able to identify what ones I had. The variety of salt cellars was amazing! Master salts and individual salts & etc.

HASH(0x95929318) out of 5 stars 5,000 Open Salts 25 Jan. 2010
By DottyeB - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good "reference" book for any collector or antique dealer to have for valid identification of collectible open salts. Because it includes all types of open salts, i.e.porcelain (china), glass, silver, etc., it is invaluable for not only the beginning collector, but for the advanced collector wishing to positively identify their collection. It gives just enough "history" and information about this interesting little collectible to make the book interesting, but happily, the focus is on identifying individual salts for the collector. The photos are such a nice plus (as some guides have only line drawings). One needs to purchase another "guide" that gives values and rarity, but as an identifying source, "5000 Open Salts" is wonderful.
