Heiss, Philadelphia






Circa 1850-1855 Cobalt Blue Pontiled Soda - HEISS, Philadelphia

This is the slightly tougher "no star" variant of this classic Philly soda that is becomming harder to find. The top is a rounded applied taper. Nice iron pontiled base with a ring of residue.

Embossed: HEISS (block letters) / PHILAD.A // H (large script) / UNION GLASS WORKS / PHILAD.A

Height:  7 5/8"  
Color: cobalt blue

Condition: excellent - perfect structurally with no dings, chips, bruises or nicks. This bottle has never been tumble polished but is pretty clean, maybe slight dullness. It does have some spotty wear that could be polished up, but I like the natural state and patina myself.

Reference Number:  GW382

Price: $320
