CRUDE IRON PONTILED CATHEDRAL PICKLE JAR - DEEP GREENISH AQUAMARINE

ITEM 2859. CATHEDRAL PICKLE JAR, deep greenish aquamarine, square with fancy cathedral arches, square iron pontil scar, 11 7/8"H x 3 1/2"W, applied collar, a mint bottle with a few scattered scuff marks. American, 1855-1865.

This brightly colored pickle jar is literally bursting at the seams (it is WAY overblown and several of the panels are wildly bowed) and as shown, the piece is plastered with whittle marks. The neatly molded base houses a square iron pontil scar and the crudely applied mouth sits just below the top of the neck. The glass is either a deep greenish aquamarine or light green in color (take your pick) and the bottle is blown in a fancier than usual mold with beautiful gothic motifs in the shoulders.
