Akro Friday


Recommended Posts

I know I've already posted this one but the oxblood in it is near black, an almost anemic type color, all my other blue aces have the lighter colored ox. a pic of it alone and beside a regular colored one for comparison. " Oop's" Happy Akro Friday all.

Nice Akros!


I don't collect them but I have  a few.

I don't collect them either but I sure ended up with amess of them, every time I bought a lot or went to an estate sale and got some there was always Akro in there so I decided I would keep the best and sell or give away the rest, well the rest is starting to build up or creep up on me

A very nice multi Ric, man those really used to draw the $$ anything over 3 colors really set Akro collectors off. Nice and wet, I see why you kept it. :thup:

Two of my favorite akros. No matter what I do the second photo will only load upside down. The last time I posted this pic it was right. Thanks

Yes Jess, not many around anymore I know, but there are some. Did a big thread on blueberry and other ade's on the other forum, just about any color they made had a patch to go with, because of the small number of the white ones I take it they weren't a big hit with the kids.

Oop !

 I thought it was Sat. Lost one somewhere there. Here's a dome I bought at an antique store for $20.00. It was full of thimbles being that's what it was designed for in the first place. You can see the little upraised bumps between the mibs, I just put rubber o rings in between each thimble holding bump and I was in business. I ran into another One at an estate sale, also full of thimbles, the same amount of shelves but a little bigger in diameter $ 30.00 this time after they took out the thimbles. I Googled these and $75.00 each, plus mine rotate and te ones for sale didn't, a nice set of displays at 1/3 of the price. I have since went to flats and wall mounts for space reasons.

I've lost track of what's posted and not so I'll go to a favorite store and post some of their goodies for a little Friday night Akro education. I haven't smoked in over 12 years but still enjoy the glass, I have some tabbed ashtrays but that's it, here's a little variety for all you Akrozoners.

Short tabbed, shown in oxblood


An Akro black amethyst Hamilton match puller ashtray


A very early Akro agate ashtray, check out the early embossing on this one.


The embossing on the bottom "AA" Akro Agate, a very plain but rare ashtray


Akro hexagonal design


The dreaded Akro ellipsoid, even the name is cool


At 1 1/4" tall these thumb pot are tiny, I have 2 of them one is already pictured and is uv. The rarest 2 colors are black & amethyst, the little dimple in the bottom is a knockout if you want a plant in it, used for a water drain. Every size had these.


I better slip in a few mibs just to make it legal.

An egg yolk ox


an imperil cork


I can't believe it Steph, I got rid of a double post, deleted it completely.

peter piper pic...... never mind I bet I could never pull that one off again !!
