Description

#979      701.1        Unmarked.      Vivid green.

Known as the "Sandwich Egg," the 701.1 is different than a 701 "Magnetic 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.  Among the most attractively colored threadlsss, considering all types produced.

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.

Spectacular, shiny, very near mint condition!
