Vintage Set of 500 mL Fisher and Kimax Round Bottom Flasks and Metal Holder
This is a wonderful set of six vintage Pyrex (2) and Kimax (4) round bottom 500 mL chemistry lab flasks. The boiling flasks are 12 1/2 inches tall and 3 1/2 inches at the widest part of the flasks.
These vintage round bottom flasks are rare, however new ones that are labeled Pyrex no. 5420 are priced at $550 each on Wilmad Labglass web site. We have two of these in the display. The collection also includes four vintage 500 mL Kimax round bottom flasks, which are priced as $45 each on the VWR scientific website.
We found the collection at an American art fair. We are showing how it could be used as a beautiful display arrangement with flowers. Flowers are not included in the sale of the item. There are also pictures without the flowers to give you another view.
We are selling the collection of six bottles and the holder as a set. For the scientific equipment collectors, this is a great collection of lab flask contained in a metal holder with the "Fisher Scientific Co Elmer and Amend" label on the metal holder (please see the photos). Elmer and Amend was New York based equipment/materials supplier that Fisher acquired in 1940. We can date this holder to between 1940 - 1981. Fisher was acquired by Allied Corporation in 1981.
If you are a collector of scientific items, this is a great find. But if you are a decorator, wouldn't this be great a table setting.
