MINT 3/4" Akro Agate Red/yellow POPEYE CORKSCREW

Item# GM1696
A beautiful crystal clear base glass that has an abundance of white wispy threads, the defining character of a POPEYE, is surrounded by red and yellow corkscrews running around the marble from pole to pole. Although hard to see, the ends of the colored corks show the tiny eyelash-like marks, AKA "pre-Freeze improvement marks", that indicate a manufacture date of early 1922 at the latest.
CONDITION: MINT 9.6 The surface is wet and shiny with no sign of wear that I can find using a bright light and lens; however, close inspection shows some clearl as-made tiny pin-points that you can see in the sixth picture.
