Lot 186: SI 106 "HEMINGRAY"  Color: Clear w/ Pyroglaze Lettering  Description: An amazing salesman's sample that is a full size CD 106! Tri-colored pyroglaze lettering reads on the front in yellow letters on a dark blue background "HEMINGRAY / ANOTHER [OI logo] PRODUCT". On the rear, dark blue script lettering on a yellow background reads "World standard / since 1870". A ding on the crown and a little speck missing on the yellow [OI logo] as seen in the photo. What is especially interesting is that this does not have any typical embossing, but it was made from a mold that was not engraved! Probably made in the late 1930's when Owens-Illinois purchased Hemingray. Only a handful are known so don't let this unique piece slip away!
Estimate: $600 - $800  Open: $10
