tall Forma coffee pot with RED version of Purple Myrtle

Another amazing find from Jim. I was possibly the last to notice this at our group's meeting this morning at Jim's place, there was just so much to see.

I believe the tall Forma pot is rare in itself but with this once seen only pattern it must be worth at least one hundred at auction, perhaps a few more. Jim paid $4.

When Mark Cleverley addressed the exhibition of his work at Object space I questioned him about Arthur and Martha, Captain Sharples, and Purple Myrtle. Mark told me that the purple was a mix of red and blue, and I recall seeing a photo of a "Blue Myrtle" can but thought it may have been a sample rather than a production piece. Now I've seen the red, just once but it's out there.
