Description

Vintage Clear marked “U.S.A.” Globes, which stands for “United States Army.”  Most, but not all, of these globes are marked by MacBeth Glass Company “845-A.”  These globes have rust on them so we believe this box we acquired was glass put into storage after being used.

 

Dimensions:
■ Height: 4 1/4″
■ Top: 2 1/4″
■ Bottom: 2 13/16″

 

PLEASE NOTE: We can not guarantee any consistency or quality in antique glass which is susceptible, but not limited to:  Imperfections;  Small flaws;  Scratches;  Chips;  Flea bites;  etc..  We have a standard for our antique glass and will not send you something extremely flawed.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE:  Vintage Red Glass, (and other colors and clear,) is often susceptible to a chemical imbalance in the glass that appears as “Glass Cancer,” also known as “Crizzling” or “Glass Disease.”  Glass may already show signs of glass cancer when purchased, and we advise you not operate a lantern with this globe as you do run the risk of the issue getting worse.  There are many articles on Glass Disease, but simply put, crystals on the surface will flake off and make the surface of the glass rough to the touch.  The globe may not appear to have this issue, but heat may reveal the issue further.  Again, We Advise Not to use Antique Globes with a Flame.
