Lot 93: CD 162 HAMILTON GLASS  Color: Light Aqua  Description: Some nibbling at the edge of the base, typical of many "mold line over the base" pieces, otherwise in great condition. The Hamilton Glass Company, active in the glassmaking during the last half of the 1800s, embossed its name on only one style of insulator, and it is relatively difficult to find one. A large, nearly 1" wide bubble can be prominently seen in the front skirt, and there are loose flakes of soot that move around in the bubble as you rotate the insulator! For an extra challenge and hours of entertainment, try to get half of the soot flakes on one side of the bubble and the other half on the other side! (#0100)
Estimate: $100 - $150  Open: $10
