ITEM 2245. "GREELEY'S / BOURBON WHISKEY / BITTERS. / GREELEY'S", (Ring# G102), brilliant aquamarine, figural barrel, smooth base, 9 1/2"H x 2 1/4"D, applied square collar, shallow ¼" top of lip bruise and several small lip edge flakes. American, C. 1875, very rare.

Fresh from a home in Rochester, Vermont, this is the first time that this very rare bitters barrel has been offered publicly. As shown, the bottle does exhibit some minor lip damage but the remainder of the piece is PERFECT with no staining and BRILLIANT glass. The strong, spiky embossing is bolder than usual and the piece exhibits a pleasing "bluish" cast that is stronger than examples that we have previously encountered. Check your auction catalogs - the Spiller example brought more than $7000!!!!!!
