SCHOTT S8 Gobs

The last production run of S8 gobs occurred five years ago. Upon conclusion of the run, the factory burned, and the tanks were removed, leaving only crucible melting in Duryea, PA. Consequently, it is doubtful SCHOTT will ever melt the glass again - the demand is just not high enough. The glass was priced around $22 per pound.
