Top Diameter: 1-7/16" (1.417" or 36mm) Bottom Diameter: 1-1/8" (1.180" or 30mm) Length: 1-1/2" (1.500" or 38mm)
Size #17 Cork Stoppers in Extra Select Grade are superb tapered corks. Made from 100% natural cork. Size #17 Extra Select Corks Stoppers are manufactured to exacting standards to provide a secure fit every time. All cork stoppers are visually sorted depending on their quality grade. The cork grade is determined by the lenticels (crevices) that occur naturally in the cork. Extra Select are among the highest grade available, meaning they have smaller and fewer lenticels than a XXX or XXXX grade.
The corks were purchased as replacements for the traditional Thermos Bottle which used a cork stopper. The quality is very high and the cork does fit but it is just a little too fat on the bottom and not as long as the original corks designed as vacuum bottle stoppers. If WIDGETCO would make replica corks
for vintage thermos bottles and advertise them on ebay they would sell a lot of them because these corks are in demand and go for too much on ebay.
WIDGETCO: make a longer cork stopper with the correct taper and bottom diameter and advertise and sell them as Thermos Bottle Cork Stoppers.
[Reply from WIDGETCO: Thank you for the suggestion. It's not exactly our market, but does anyone know the dimensions of the original cork? We like to know these things for future consideration.]
