Lot 3: CD 701.6 {Unembossed} [010]  Color: Translucent Aqua  Description: What sets this apart from nearly all the other "Confederate Eggs" is its fantastic bubbly translucent color! One can see a lot of snow and bubbles floating around inside, as well as several dark streaks and milk swirls. Most of the "Confederate Eggs" are fractured to some degree, but being blackglass it is much harder to see the damage. This example has a fracture up the side. Off from that, there is an arc-shaped fracture that starts at the lower wire ridge and goes across above the upper wire ridge and down to the base on the other side of the insulator. The outside of the insulator, including the base, is in great condition for this style. The only area of significance is a 3/4" x 1/4" bruise/flake on the side of the dome. This "egg" looks great backlit and will stand out head and shoulders above your dark and blackglass examples!
