three-piece mold cylinder with expanded mouth, early smooth base,
8 3/8"H x 3 9/16"D, crudely applied mouth, an attic
quality jar with a skin deep 1/16" body flake that probably
occurred when the jar was removed from the mold. Blown at a Stoddard

FOOD JAR, deep greenish aquamarine,
three piece-mold cylinder, pontil scar, 10 1/4"H x 4 1/4"D,
crudely applied mouth, a mint jar with an interesting manufacturer's
flaw - the applied mouth does not entirely cover the sheared neck.

cylindrical, pontil scar, 9 3/4"H x 4 ½"D, delicately
flared mouth, a mint jar exhibiting the expected light usage wear.
Blown at a Midwestern Glass House, 1820-1840.
