Catalogue Note: This extremely rare and important salt is one of only seven recorded in this color. The example from the Elsholz collection was exhibited at the CMOG in 1954 and the HFM in 1960; formerly in the collection of Mrs. Harry S. High, it was purchased at the Elsholz auction by Gary Stradling. The example at Corning and illustrated by Spillman is from the Louise S. Esterly collection and is the same specimen illustrated by McKearin. The example illustrated in Barlow/Kaiser is from the Bennington Museum. The Metropolitan Museum of Art was gifted the Dr. Charles W. Green example in 1951 by his widow. An unpublished example, purchased from Abraham & May, resides in a private New York City collection. A sixth example with a reattached leg surfaced in 2005 from the Esther Ludwig collection sold through Freeman's in Philadelphia.
