RARE HIGH SHOULDERED LYNCH & CLARKE QUART

 

  ITEM 2993. "LYNCH & CLARKE / NEW YORK", (similar to Tucker# C-1:C), yellow olive, high-shouldered two-piece mold cylinder, sand chip pontil scar, quart, applied sloping collar with ring, about mint (shallow 3/16" lip edge flake). Probably blown at the Mount Vernon Glass Works, Mount Vernon, NY, 1823-1833, rare.

This wonderfully crude quart-sized Lynch & Clarke does not appear to match any of the three variations documented by Tucker. It is most similar to C-1:C but the letters are larger than noted. As with most known examples of this rare bottle, the piece is not perfect but the noted lip flake is very shallow and barely noticeable. The bottle is otherwise mint and it is without question one of the more attractive examples we have encountered.
