The cover is vibrant gold with an intense magenta blue corona, an amber ridged button finial seated in the center. Measures 10 inches by 8 1/2 inches across the shoulder. There are a couple of factory labels, one reading “Durand Art Glass, Vineland, N.J. Handmade” another reading “No. 1964-8” (hand written), Price (blank) and Dec OK (hand written). There is a cloth tape attached, appearing to be factory with writing in old ink with the shape number & height 1964-8” and where an inconceivable price of $30.00 pr. is recorded. This urn and a companion urn in this auction apparently left the factory together. Impressive vessel in excellent original condition.
