In 1873, the first recorded flight over Long Island was a balloon piloted by W.H. Donaldson from Brooklyn to Queens Village. In 1909, Glenn Curtiss flew a plane 25 miles from Mineola and won the Scientific American Prize. In 1916 there was the first night flight. The following year, the Sperry Aerial torpedo, a pilotless aircraft, took flight. 1924 marked the first round-the-world flight which arrived at Mitchel Air Force Base, aka- Mitchel Field.
This is just some of the rich history of aviation in Long Island, New York, where The Stone Register is headquartered. Due to our company’s geographical relevance and our unique clientele we have elected to make available some special pieces with certain clients in mind, for one reason or another.
It's no mistake that this stunning creation sits atop a jet black base--"jet" being the operative word. This is a marriage of fuel and fire represented in one striking moment frozen in time. The spinning blades, compressed air, and other mechanics of the jet engine process will have to be left to your imagination; the focus here is that glorious moment of ignition when jet fuel leads to fire leads to motion leads to flight!
The jet fuel and heat are represented by purple for its intensity and uniqueness on the color spectrum. However, watch closely as the finely cut, glazed crystal transitions from deep purple to sky blue entirely, with a change of lighting.
Like setting soar in the open skies, we call this freedom blue. And we call this piece one of the finest we've ever offered; a true work of superior craftsmanship and an absolute essential for your collection.
