Colour and varieties of same design are listed.

Description: D:\Documents\WEBS\JuicerCollector-2007\Juicers\Images_2\Crown_Bullet.jpg

I have at least one sample of each in my collection.

Description: D:\Documents\WEBS\JuicerCollector-2007\Juicers\Images_2\Crown_Bullet.jpg

I have also identified different developmental stages of Crown Crystal lemon squeezers. In brief, the reamer (cone) gradually got larger.

 

For a photographic comparison of the developmental stages of lemon squeezers, see Crown Crystal Lemon Juicers.

  First type juicers may have Mould Numbers.
  When a listings gives Known numbers it means that these numbers have been found on lemon squeezers in this collection.
 

The type numbers are my own and are only used to identify variations in this pattern. Perhaps, if some other researcher has other ideas then I will go with the flow.

These juicers were made between 1929 and 1965.

During that time the pattern did not change, however, The cone's orientation changed and gradually got larger The later examples, 1950's/60's had much heavier glass.

These juicers are relatively common and are still being used in homes and school hospitality classrooms/kitckens throughout Australia. Coloured varieties are less common.

 

If there is any damage, even if still usable, they have no value to collectors other than as a space filler.

These juicers were made from 1929 to 1950's.

During that time the pattern did not change, however, The cone's orientation changed and gradually got larger The later examples, 1950's had much heavier glass.

These juicers are relatively common and are still being used in homes throughout Australia. While coloured varieties are less common the green glass is not hard to find.

 

If there is any damage, even if still usable, they have very little value to collectors other than as a space filler.

This exists with Green that glows and is not uranium. A lot of green glass had manganese in it which gives a similar green. This glass glows orange/peach colour or a lime green colour.

Flint is a recogonised colour in glass. It is a smokey grey colour as seen in a lot of Victorian era glass. I am aware that some publications call clear or uncoloured glass 'Flint'.

These juicers were made from 1929 to 1950's.

All are very hard to find without any minor chipping. The juicer is very heavy and prone to damage. Chipping less than 1.5mm should be concidered acceptable. Larger damage reduces its value as a collectable. Perfect examples should carry a premium

I have at least 3 different green glass types
Uranium Green (glows brightly)
Green that glows (not uranium)
Green that does not glow.

I have two of the blue glass'
These blue glass juicers are very rare.

These juicers were made from 1929 to 1950's. (*)

Very similar to those made in the USA. Check measurements
Australia has 20oz = 1 Pint. USA has 16oz = 1 Pint

These are very difficult to find complete as the measuring jug had other uses and became seperated. You will/may have to buy the jug and the insert seperately. Be careful that the green glass parts are either both Uranium or both plain green.

This exists with Green that glows and is not uranium. A lot of green glass had manganese in it which gives a similar green. This glass glows orange/peach colour or a lime green colour.
