ITEM 2720. CATHEDRAL PICKLE JAR, brilliant aquamarine, square with fancy cathedral arches, early smooth base, 8 5/8"H x 3 1/4"W, outwardly folded mouth, mint. Willington Glass Company, West Willington, CT, 1860-1872, rare.

This is the smallest of the three sizes of Willington pickle jars and it is also the hardest to locate. The jar is FRESH from a Maine estate and it is a superior example of its type with damage, wear or staining. Though it is smooth based, the jar is certainly of the "pontil era," dating to the 1860s. The small Willington pickle only rarely comes to light (I do not personally recall seeing an example on a show table or at auction for nearly ten years) and it is truly a bottle collecting "classic."
