SCARCE COLONIAL ERA FREEBLOWN JAR - DEEP OLIVE GREEN

 

ITEM 3422. FREEBLOWN JAR, deep olive green, cylindrical, sand chip pontil scar, 8"H x 4 1/2"D, crudely applied mouth, about mint (1/16" top of lip flake with no appreciable depth). A Colonial Era jar blown at either an early New England Glass Works or imported from England, 1780-1820, scarce.

This beautifully constructed jar is topped by an applied mouth that is IDENTICAL to the mouth treatment commonly found on the olive green "HS" Masonic flask. With that said, though it is perhaps "English" in form, this jar is quite possibly Keene, NH in origin. Further evidence of this attribution can be found in Harry Hall White's article on Keene where similarly "heavy" mouth treatments are pictured.

SOLD!
