#007     701.1     Unmarked.     Vivid green.     

Known as the "Sandwich Egg," the 701.1 is different than a 701 "Magentic Egg," having a slightly wider top, somewhat different exterior contours, and the base and interior are formed differently.  

The attractive, bright green glass is of exceptional, high quality.  Of the few similar green examples known, this one is a touch lighter, and thus a little brighter than others. 

Generally believed to have been produced by the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company in Sandwich, Massachusetts.  Typically these egg style threadless insulators, dating circa 1850’s to mid 1860’s were produced with high quality glass exhibiting excellent clarity and richness, consistent with products made at the Sandwich works.  Other New England glasshouses were producing similar high quality glass, including Deming Jarvis’s Cape Cod Glass Works, and are also possible sources of these colorful gems, but all or most were likely made at the Boston & Sandwich factory.

Shallow, slightly smaller than dime size chip on the dome and a lower wire ridge chip are both on the same mold half, as seen in the 2nd image.  Displays very near mint+ from three sides.  A beauty!
