This vessel is New Old Stock - it was in storage for almost half a century - recently discovered - never touched nor used - rare and unique. Have you heard the term New Old Stock (NOS)? For example, if you were lucky enough to come across a collection of baseball cards (hopefully still in the old wrappers and un-opened), that could be NOS. Other New Old stock items are art glass, pottery, pens, watches, toys, or other things - you may have received as a child - but never used or opened. The real trick is to be lucky enough to find New Old Stock. In the marketplace, NOS is like the "holy grail" of anything collectible, and is so highly prized that it often commands high prices.
