ITEM 3621. PATTERN MOLDED GLOBULAR BOTTLE,
pale apple green, 18 vertical ribs, pontil scar, 8 1/4"H,
applied sloping collar with ring, a mint bottle exhibiting the
expected light usage wear. Midwestern, probably blown at a Pittsburgh
District Glass House, Pittsburgh, PA, 1820-1840, unusual mouth
Discussions with longtime Pittsburgh Glass collectors lead us
to believe that this is a particularly early globular bottle
most likely dating to the first quarter of the Nineteenth Century.
This assessment is based upon both the unusual lip treatment
and the color/texture of the glass. The bottle is in any event
just different enough for even the novice collector to understand
that he/she is looking at something "special."
