Flaccus Bros Steers Head in Emerald Green - North American Glass May 2011 Auction

I received a notice from Greg Spurgeon regarding the latest North American Glass on-line auction of quality bottles & jars that will open on Monday, May 23rd. You can now preview all 231 items at his North American Glass website.

What caught my eye when I visited the new auction was his Gallery Featured Items. In particular lot #2664, the Flaccus Bros Steers Head Fruit Jar in Emerald Green (pictured above). I love these jars. They are so detailed and simply gorgeous. They also come in great colors. I’ve posted a few pictures below.
