diminutive 16 rib pocket flask or nurser with original pewter closure


ITEM 5989. PATTERN MOLDED NURSER OR POCKET FLASK WITH ORIGINAL PEWTER CLOSURE, pale green, 16 vertical ribs, pontil scar, 5 ¾"H, sheared and fire polished mouth with applied threaded pewter closure, mint. Probably American, possibly late 18th century South Jersey, rare.

Although it was found in Maine, it is my best estimation that this is a New Jersey piece that dates to the 18th century. The bottle is unlike any we have encountered and as shown, it is a diminutive object with exceptional form and loads of character.
