Original vintage magazine ad, PHOENIX METAL CAP CO. of Chicago, IL. and Brooklyn, NY. From the famed strato bowl in the Black Hills on November 12, 1935, rose a titanic, pear shaped bag which carried Captain Albert W. Stevens and Orville A, Anderson to a world's altitude record of 72,395 feet. This conqueror of the rarified and subzero atmosphere of the stratosphere was Explorer II, largest balloon ever built. Phoenix Metal Caps of themselves can not send sales soaring into the stratosphere. But in sealing ability, protection of product and decorative value Phoenix Metal Caps are tops! Old 1938 glass industry advertisement would look fantastic matted and framed.
Approximate size 8 x 11 inches.
