ITEM 3315. UTILITY JAR, bright golden
amber, three piece mold cylinder, smooth base, 8 7/8"H x
3 1/2"D, crudely applied mouth, mint. Blown at a Stoddard
Glass Works, Stoddard, NH, 1860-1872, scarce.
Having owned half-a-dozen different examples of this whiskey
jar over the years I can confidently state that you will not
find a better example of this piece, PERIOD. I have seen others
in better color (you might remember the RED one that was on the
market in the late 90s) and even one that was equally crude.
However, I have not seen ANY with the combination of color, crudity
and condition exhibited by this attic mint example. And, to top
it off, the bottle also features the crudest and most unusual
neck and mouth treatment of any example we have seen. With that
said, the bottle does truly qualify as the "best possible
example" and we are pleased to offer this fine piece with
our very highest recommendations.
