William Dudley

William Dudley 1923 - 2011

Just in from Greg Spurgeon at North American Glass:

North American Glass has been commissioned to disperse the collection of the late Bill Dudley of Xenia, Ohio. Bill was an enthusiastic collector for many years, focusing on fruit jar items from the Hemingray Glass Company, as well as patented closure jars and the earliest blown glass wares. Refer to the photos below for a glimpse at a few of the items in the collection.

From Findlay Antique Bottle Club: Bill has been a good friend and mentor to many collectors, sharing his knowledge freely, and helping to shape the fruit jar collecting hobby. He was at one time called “Mr. Wax Sealer.” He is now and has been known for many years in the collecting community as “Mr. Hemingray”.
