ITEM 5102. FANCY PICKLE JAR, deep aquamarine, generally cylindrical with fancifully embossed arches at base and shoulder - eight flattened panels at midbody, iron pontil scar, 10 3/4" H, hand-tooled single collar mouth, a mint, attic-quality bottle with a bean sized bubble that is open on the surface and onion-skin in depth. American, C.1850, extremely rare.

When we bought this bottle a number of years ago it was the only example of its type that we had seen and it remains so, although I have since found reference to a similar piece that was sold through Glass Works Auctions in the late 80s. As shown, the bottle's richly shaded glass is percolating with bubbles and the crisply embossed detailing is a testament to the gaffer's skill.
