Intaglio Salt Cellars

Today's word for the January list is 'collection'. I collect vintage Czechoslovakian intaglio salt cellars from the 1920's. My favorites are the dogs. 'Intaglio' is engraved glass, where the design is carved from underneath. I purchased my first one several years ago at an antique shop at the beach.

Still stuck indoors on antibiotics. I'm afraid if I am limited to the indoors, you all may be stuck looking at everything I collect down to the dust! And I have a large collection of that, as I spend lots of time on 365!
Very cool

What a cool collection. I am looking for a Corgi in there.
Thanks for sharing that.
Hope you feel better soon.

Great composition of this collection! They are so fun, how many do you have?

@kathyladley I only have about a dozen dogs, and about seven others. I actually haven't looked for any for about a year.... tiny as they are I'm not sure where I would put any more! So a fairly small collection!

Perry would love the greyhound. I love how you have arranged them, the glass shines nicely.

@drussell The greyhound was the very first one I bought!

What a neat collection! I've never heard of them. And I know exactly what you mean about the dust! It's amazing how much time I spend on taking pictures, editing pictures, posting pictures, and commenting on pictures! What will I do with all my free time when I'm done?
