The world renowned tallest cobalt blue EC&M, measuring in at OVER 5 inches tall, made a brief appearance before quickly changing hands. This beauty, complete with aqua striations in the dome, was purchased in 1970 by Marvin Collins. He owned and enjoyed it for 42 years, then decided it was time to let someone else have the honor. It has made several appearances at shows and in displays over the years, always amazing its viewers by its super "tallness". The base extension measures in at just over 1-1/8" ! No, that's not a repair at the left lower side, it's a massive fold of glass.
