No other group of the Lacy Salts represents a more historical aspect as a whole then the Eagle group. Sure there is the busts of Washington,Lafayette and Henry Clay but they are rather plain square salts with small busts on the side panels. These Eagle salts are some of the most ornate and beautiful also of all of the salts. I have 5 different variants in my personal collection with all of them being quite rare .
EE-1 Eagle salt in Clear glass listed as scarce. This salt was made at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company.
The Neal listed EE-3 and the EE3-B.
The first of these two Eagle salts is listed as the EE-3. It is clear in color and is listed as rare by Neal. This salt was manufactured at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company. The difference between this salt and the next on the EE-3B are the small vertical beads running in the American coat of arms below the eagle. Other then this minute difference they are identical in every other aspect including the base of each one. EE-3
The Shield in close.
EE-3B This next one as you can see is exactly the same as the other eagle above except for the vertical stripes in the coat of arms. This salt is the EE-3B. It is clear in color and is listed as scarce by the Neal's. This salt was also manufactured at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company
EE-5 Clear rare
This large Eagle salt dish was made at the Providence Flint glass company. Providence was not a large operation and only made 6 or 7 total salts. All of the Lacy salts produced at these works are at a minimum scarce in nature. This particular salt is listed as rare by Neal and is clear in color.
The next salt in the Eagle group in my collection is the EE 7A. This one is clear in color and is listed as Extremely rare by Neal. It was manufactured at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company early between 1825 and 1830. This is a very large heavy Flint glass with a grey hue to it. The ornamentation on this salt is second to none.
