ITEM 4701. UTLITY OR MEDICINE
BOTTLE, golden olive amber, rectangular with concave beveled
edges, pontil scar, 7"H, crudely applied collared mouth,
mint. Blown at a Stoddard, NH Glass Works, C.1850, rare.
Known colloquially as the "Stoddard Tombstone," this
rare and oh-so impressive bottle is as fine an example as we
have encountered. Of the two mouth finishes in which this bottle
can be found, the single collar is widely recognized as the more
attractive and the crude rendering of this particular collar
will make a Stoddard Glass Collector's mouth water.
