Rare complete 8 piece salt set, 4 cut glass salt dishes with 4 English sterling silver salt spoons, in original black leatherette case - Scottish case. Silver spoons: Maker: C. B. & S, City of Sheffield, sterling, year 1901. Hallmarks: Maker (C B&S), City and Standard (crown and standing lion with front leg raised), and Date (i).
Inside of the case is marked with "To the Admiralty, 10 Gordon St. Glasgow, J. R. & W. Laing, Diamond Merchants". The salt dishes are in mint condition as well as the spoons. The leather case is in good exterior shape but interior in poor shape. The lining has stains and deterioration, and the lower/hinge side of the cover/top is torn in the corners on the inside.

Depression glass. Graduated tear drop rim. Sterling silver overlay design of leaf, vine and grapes in the interior corners extending down on to the center. The interior edge of the rim is trimmed in silver also. Condition: very good; slight roughness in a couple of spots along inside edge which may be flea bites or manufacturing flaws. No cracks, flakes, or repairs. The silver overlay seems to be intact but may need polishing. I haven't polished in fear of damaging the intricate design.
The blank (3-part dish, #555) was manufactured by Paden City Glass but not sure they did the silver overlay. Usually a silver overlay company bought blanks from a glass company and added the overlay design. Paden City Glass Mfg. Com was located in Paden City, WV, and operated from 1916-1951. It appears the blanks for #555 were used in several other Paden's patterns like Gazebo and Utopia with etching added.
