Thanks everybody. Unfortunately these tanks are really hard to find as only 300 were made in the 20's. There were some repros made but they didn't have the slate bottom. They were also more expensive than the originals and apparently didn't sell well.
I bid on a really neat one from the 30's that had catfish in each corner of the tank, tail at top and head at bottom, and the same bulb edge glass as my Jewels but this one was made of aluminum and painted. I bid too low but I would have restored it to its former glory if I had won.
I'm going to be selling my smaller 4 gal. Jewel in the near future as I don't have room for both of them.
Let me know if anyone's interested. It has all its original finish and is restored with glass over the slate bottom and black silicone. Only drawback is it has water etching to the glass which I was unable to remove. It doesn't look bad when its full of water but you can't get this bulb edge glass anymore.
