ITEM 5046. DEMI-JAR, deep olive green with profuse "black" slaggy striations, two-piece mold cylinder, 13 ¾"H x 7 ½"D, HUGE (nearly 3"D) red iron pontil scar, mint. American, C. 1850, extremely rare.

Where to begin? Manipulated from a 3 or 4 gallon demijohn mold, this incredible jar is unlike any piece of period glass we have seen. Awash in slaggy striations, the metal appears as if it was dredged from the very bottom of the pot. With that said, it is the HUGE red ion pontil that is this bottle's most salient feature. If you are in the market for something "different" to add to your collection, this is the piece for you!
