RARE 18 1/4"H CASE GIN BOTTLE - CLEAR OLIVE GREEN

ITEM 5616. MAMMOTH CASE GIN BOTTLE, clear olive green, tapered square case gin form, tubular pontil scar, 18 ¼"H, crudely applied mouth, a mint bottle exhibiting the expected usage wear and retaining some content residue. Probably blown at a Dutch Glass House, 1760-1800, rare size.

The black glass collection we have been fortunate to acquire includes not just one but two mammoth case gin bottles. Don't let this fact fool you, these are very rare bottles, especially when found without damage. This big old beauty is probably the prettier of the pair (sadly it is also the smaller) and it has withstood the test of time with stout resoluteness, much like the man brave enough to conquer the original contents.


SOLD!
