ITEM 2579. "BOLEN. WAACK & CO. NEW YORK - MINERAL / SPRING / WATER", (not listed in Tucker), grass green, cylindrical, smooth base, pint, applied sloping collar with ring, a mint bottle retaining some content residue. A partially open top-of-lip bubble is a non-distracting manufacturer's flaw. American, 1870-1880, extremely rare.

To our knowledge, this is one of less than a handful of known PINT-sized mineral waters with the Bolen Waack & Co. embossing and it is quite possibly the only example blown in this bright shade of grass green bottle glass. (The only other example that we can find in our reference material was amber.) The bottle is fresh from an estate in Randolph, Vermont and it has NEVER been offered previously. As noted, there is a small, non-distracting partially open bubble on the top of the lip but there is no other damage, wear or staining. The embossing is exceptionally bold and the glass is filled with a multitude of tiny bubbles that add notably to the bottle's character. This a truly RARE bottle that would make an important addition to any serious collection of mineral waters!
