- Amethyst German Quilted Target Ball
Amethyst glass, diameter 2 1/2", circa 1870s, mint condition with just a rough
lip where it was cut during the manufacturing process,
from the East German town of Gablonz in northern Tschechei,
- IRA PAINE'S FILLED BALL PAT. OCT 23 1877
Golden yellow amber glass, height 2 1/2", 3PM, variant with an extra "B"
above the "C" in "OCT", American, circa 1877-80, near mint condition,
- Man Shooting in Circle
Pink amethyst glass - lighter shade than you normally see,
Color was hard to capture with photo since ball looks lighter
inside and darker outside but the one marked "Color" shows
the color and best and also shows the amethyst swirls,
this is the rarest color for the Man Shooting balls that
come in a variety of colors with cobalt blue being the most
common, if you are trying to put together a rainbow set
of these then this will is the hardest color to get,
color is swirled - being almost clear in some spots
but light pink amethyst overall, crude glass that is slightly
caved in on left side (front photo shows this - due to being
slightly underblown at manufacturing time),
all embossing/pattern is nice and crisp,
2 5/8" diameter, sheared top, circa 1880s, mint condition.
This was lot 598 in the Oct '99 Glass Works Auction where
this ball was pictured on the back cover of the catalog.
sold on eBay - ends Sep 16, 2002.
