|On the bottom of both of these salts is a paper label that reads, "Carbone, Boston, New York, Chicago, Ven 4030". They are an intense ruby red glass, with applied handles that are composed of red glass with a clear outer layer of glass applied over that. The clear layer shows gilding, some of which has worn off. The salts stand 2" tall, with a base diameter of 2-18" and about 2-7/8" across the bowl. I would estimate that they probably date to the 1920s. The only damage I can see is roughness at the tips of the handles at the clear glass overlay.|
