Glass Works Auction – The “Colors of Fall” – October 19th

Glass Works Auctions big fall event comprises 375 lots with an substantial offering of historical flasks, rare soda bottles, pontil medicine bottles, bitters, fire grenades and much more.

Of special note is the rare California Fire Extinguisher in amber with embossed bear. It’s one of the most desirable fire grenade bottles out there, and not surprisingly, it attained a high bid of $5,000 long before closing day.

Another very exiting bottle is the GXII-15 “Union” / Clasped Hands – Eagle with Banner / “E. Wormser & Co / Pittsburgh in a deep blue green color. Examples in unusual colors (besides aqua and amber) in Group 12 are unusual, and this one is just amazing. Several days before closing, the bidding had achieved $19,000.

Bidding closes Monday evening, October 19th.
