RARE 10"D SOUTH JERSEY BLOWN GLASS HAT WHIMSEY - DEEP AQUAMARINE

ITEM 5666. BLOWN GLASS HAT WHIMSEY, deep aquamarine, cylindrical with widely flaring brim, pontil scar, 5 7/8"H x 10" across brim, outwardly folded rim, about mint (minor potstone radiation in shoulder). American, probably blown at a Southern New Jersey Glass House, C. 1850, rare size.

This oversized hat is a superb example of the mid-Nineteenth century wares produced in the South Jersey (Germanic) tradition of glassblowing. Most likely blown using a dip mold typically utilized in making demijohns, this well-constructed piece would have served as both a whimisical and utilitarian purpose.
