Description

    Manhattan Project Glass
    Manhattan Project Hanford Site
    Southeastern Washington, USA

    This awesome rectangular bar of clear yellow Manhattan Project Glass is some 8 inches (20 cm) tall and features some interesting geometric angularities. There are some minor nicks to the glassy surfaces, but the piece is overall in good condition. This hefty representation of material is associated with the Hanford Facility that housed the first Plutonium reactor involved with the development of the first atomic bomb. This example is elegant in form and represents a large amount of the popular Manhattan Project Glass. The extremely dense compelling material has a high Lead component but is not considered radioactive.
    Overall Measurements: 7.95 x 1.57 x 1.50 inches (20.20 x 4.00 x 3.80 cm)

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500.
