CLAMSHELL CATHEDRAL PICKLE - DEEP AQUAMARINE WITH STRONG GREEN TONES

ITEM 2319. CATHEDRAL PICKLE BOTTLE, deep aquamarine with strong green tones (light to medium blue green), square with fancy cathedral arches and clamshell motif, smooth base, 8 13/16"H x 2 3/4"W, applied mouth, about mint (some light haze in the shoulders and several bubbles that are open at the surface and onionskin in depth). American, C. 1870, very scarce size and pattern. Ex. Terry Gillis Collection.

This richly toned pickle bottle is a scarce item indeed and it is the smallest of the cathedral pickles that bears the "clamshell" motif. The bottle does lack the "clock face" embossing found on its larger brethren but it remains a VERY fancy cathedral that is priced well under the auction result for the11 ¼" Spiller example in similar color. ($3500 plus 12%.) YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED by this super piece!



SOLD!
