Item details

Vintage from the 1940s



These are old lab glass stoppers. The bottles they fit haven't survived, but these are pretty nice on their own. Heavy, with interesting bubbles and imperfections from the mold.

These would be great in an assemblage piece, sitting on a windowsill, on a desk as paperweights, or as who knows what.

All are sound (no cracks; what look like cracks in one are actually surface ripples). The smaller stopper has some minor chips on the plug end but the knob is in original condition.

Flat stoppers (2 available) measure 2 1/8" at the bottom, tapering out to about 2 1/4"; knob is 1 7/8"; height is 1 3/4".

Tapered stopper (1 only) measures 1 5/8" across the knob by 2 1/8" tall. Looks like it would fit a bottle with a 7/8"-1" opening.

Returns & exchanges

Most of my pieces are made from vintage objects on the outside, with new functional parts inside. This means they will show signs of their age, which is part of their appeal, but the works will last for a long time. Unfortunately, photographs can unintentionally either disguise or exaggerate the wear on a piece. I encourage you to take this into consideration when making the decision to buy. If you find you aren't happy with your choice, you have 14 days in which to return it for a refund of the item price, not including shipping.

Shipping policies

In most cases, postage to the western U.S. will be lower than what's shown. Don't hesitate to contact me for accurate shipping costs to your location. In any case, if shipping is significantly lower than what you are charged, I will automatically refund the excess.

I am also happy to ship overseas or use expedited shipping. Please contact me to set the process in motion.

I insist on insurance. That cost is included in shipping.
