ITEM 3179. FREEBLOWN OR DIP MOLDED WHISKEY BOTTLE, olive green, cylindrical, tubular pontil scar, 11 3/8"H x 3 1/8"D, applied sloping collar with ring, mint. American, C. 1850, rare.

This outstanding American whiskey bottle is unusual in several regards. The bottle is freeblown (or dip molded) rather than fashioned in the traditional three-piece mold. And in addition, the tubular pontil is housed within a deep kick-up as one would expect to see on a French hock wine. However, the distinctive collar and glass texture speak to an American origin and we are as near certain as we can be that the piece is, in fact, of domestic manufacture. We have never seen another whiskey bottle of this type.
