Absolutely amazing JNS. I think I talked to the guy at a show that made those Kerr Liberties he had the mold there and everything.i hope my collection will be half as impressive as yours some day.WOW
Really interesting that you met the guy with the mold. The amber and pink ones in the picture just sold in a NAG auction. What other colors did he have?

You must have run into Phil Smith - he's the guy who owns the mold. He had Jeff Vanaman & his team of glassblowers make the new jars in the mold. I believe they made a dozen or so in various colors.

Beautiful collection! Is that an amber Perfection pint? And what on earth is the black streaked Kerr Anniversary?
Yes, that is an amber Perfection pint, and it has a gauze label on the other side. As for that weird color Kerr Anniversary jar, I've heard that some of the colors that were intended to be made didn't actually turn out well & Alex Kerr used most of those as the jar for the gold painted ones.perfection-embossed side.jpgperfection-label side.jpg1387 Kerr Anniv jars.JPG1387 Kerr Anniversary jars.JPG

I believe in the one picture he was handing me a clear one. I don't really remember but I believe he was asking like $400 for them

Check out those three midget Pints they are on Greg's spurgeon table first picture. Amber,milk,black glass. Those are my favorite of the whole show. I was very jar drunk that day still get excited looking at the photos.

So did you buy them? They look like 3 of the dream series jars.
