This souvenir clear glass salt dip commemorates the 27th Trienniel Conclave held in Pittsburgh, Pa. Oct 11-14, 1898.  These salt dips were used on the family dinner table prior to salt and pepper shakers.  These little dips were filled with granulated salt and people would pinch what they needed and sprinkle it on their food.   This dip was made by the U.S. Glass Co. and "Pittsburgh 1898".  It measures approximately 2 1/2 inches square and 5/8 inches deep.
