1/2"H, ground mouth, mint. American, probably blown at the
Boston and Sandwich Glass Works, Sandwich, MA, 1860-1888, rare.
Jars of this type are generally attributed to Sandwich and they
are blown from the same type of glass that one will see in a
Sandwich cologne. This fine example retains its original pewter
cover and as shown, it is blown in the perfect shade of amethyst.
