Got this 32oz Lava-Simplex globe the other day, just the globe. It's labeled as a model 300 Carlisle from 1975 but the cap is silver. Doesn't look like it was once gold but faded, and the paint looks factory. Also the top has a plastic plug in it, something I've never seen on old Simplex globes. Is this a later Lava-Haggerty product and someone just mixed up the caps? Or did they actually make silver Carlisles?
Most likely someone painted a Carlisle cap silver at some point. Looks like a pretty good bottle though, and they did use those plugs for a time however. I don't recall ever seeing a "Silver Carlisle" though that would have been easy enough since they start out as spun aluminum (which is silver) and are then sprayed with a gold/brass tinted coating. Just skip the gold/brass coat and viola! Silver!
I've never seen a model sticker with the model name!
