#1195      CD 145      H.G. CO.       PETTICOAT.       Bright orange amber.

“E” mold.  Among the darkest of the amber shades found in CD 145 H.G. beehives.  Scarcer than the lighter, yellow amber examples, and the "medium amber" units.  Production of amber beehives at the Hemingray Glass Company factory was likely circa late 1880’s to middle 1890’s time period.

In all likelihood, the amber coloration found in some HG Co. beehives was the result of glass being used that was initially made for other products such as Globe fruit jars, lamps and other products that were intentionally made in amber coloration.

Amber H.G. Co beehives were found primarily along the Great Northern Railway route in western Montana, northern Idaho and eastern Washington.  Some were also used in the Denver, Colorado area and a few have surfaced in Missouri.

SPECTACULAR CONDITION!  Appears unused!   They simply don't get any better than this!  After close examination, we can't even find as much as a flake 1/10 the size of a pinhead!  We'll call it "very, very near mint" to play it safe.
