This little salt dip is quite similar to #1875 and #1931 in the collector's guide, "5,000 Open Salts," by William Heacock and Patricia Johnson. Made of porcelain, it stands 7/8" tall and measures 1 7/8" wide. The cream-colored glaze has the delicate crackle finish which is typical of traditional Japanese Satsuma porcelain. T are green leaves and irises painted inside the bowl, and they are accented in gold. The bottom is unsigned, and this piece is in excellent condition with no nicks, chips or flakes. Buyer pays winning bid plus $2.00 postage in the USA...a bit more to other parts of the world.
