It was cool in 1851 when Langstroth "received first prize from the Philadelphia Horticultural Society for his specimens of comb honey in glass. To obtain perfect combs for market, beekeepers placed glass tumblers upside down in upper boxes ("supers") directly over holes cut to permit the bees from the hive to store surplus honey in those receptacles. Such a device provided a "fancy" article for the market."Very cool idea.
