Charlie .... Have you ever seen any of these Kelly Cabins ? ..... It's not glass . It's more like stoneware or ceramic with an Aqua glaze. I have another one that has a White glazing.
I wonder if anyone has info on who and when they were made ?

BRIAN...I read an article about this and some others a few years ago, but can't recall any details or in what publication. I had a GeoWashington-Father of His Country flask made of ceramic with a colored glaze...sold it on Ebay for $20.....only paid $5 , so I did okay.
I'll try and recall where I read about them...

Glad it was of some help.
I'm still racking my brains on where I saw those ceramic repos ...in some book. I checked all my books and came up "zip."
Also looked around on Google, but nothing came up there either.
Seems there were 3 or 4 types of those repos...besides the Kellys and the GeoWashington.
I'll keep thinking on it...maybe a bolt will strike me outta the blue.[8|]
