Perfect ‘attic’ mint condition! This is the very rare mold that is missing the ‘Union Glass Works Philada’ embossing. Jack Englert Collection.

This is the first offering of early soda and mineral water bottles from the Jack Englert collection. The collection consists of over 130 bottles most being from the pontil period. Condition was important to Jack so many of the bottles in the collection are in excellent condition. Look for more offings from the Englert correction is future auctions.
