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?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
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.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
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.Beautiful collection! Is that an amber Perfection pint? And what on earth is the black streaked Kerr Anniversary?
So did you buy them? They look like 3 of the dream series jars.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.
