ITEM 4079. FREEBLOWN DEEP BOWL,
deep aquamarine, cylindrical, pontil scar, 8 ½"H
and 8 ¼"D, outwardly folded rim, a mint bowl with
a shallow 1/8" flake stemming from an open bubble on the
rim that is undoubtedly a manufacturer's flaw. Blown at a New
York State Glass House, 1830-1850.
When we bought this bowl from David Good, Holly and I promised
each other that it was "for stock" but several years
have passed and this is the first time the bowl has been offered
for sale. Although the form is not particularly graceful, this
wonderfully deep bowl is a delight to handle and it shows great
overall wear. Blown from thick, heavy bottle glass, this bowl
(as with the pan we are currently offering) is almost certainly
the product of a Western New York State Glass House.
