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.
