EC&M from Dennis Eastley to Dennis Bray in Reno

Dennis Bray sent me this email and pictures of a great EC&M addition to his collection. That is Dennis Eastley and Dennis Bray in the picture above with the EC&M.  This occurred at the Reno Bottle Show a few weeks back.


Here’s the piece itself. It’s a beautiful emerald green, full of seed bubbles and a small nail embedded in the glass. It has a milky transparency which insulator collectors refer to as jade or jading. Simply a spectacular one of kind piece. For a figural bitters collector, you could liken this to the cobalt fish.

Thank you!
