ITEM 6016. PATTERN MOLDED GLOBULAR
BOTTLE, deep amber, 24 ribs swirled to the left, pontil scar,
7 3/8"H, outwardly folded mouth, a mint bottle exhibiting
the expected usage wear. Midwestern, probably blown at the Zanesville
Glass Works, Zanesville, OH, 1820-1840, rare size. Ex. Jack Whistance.
This eye-opening little pattern molded glob is more than one
inch smaller than most and decidedly "squatter" in
form than what one would expect. Unusually deep and rich in color,
the bottle is also very boldly ribbed and it retains a pioneer
collector's label upon the base. Please note that we are offering
the bottle both singly and as one of an assembled "pair"
with an abnormally large example. The bottles are not only startlingly
different in size and color but also ribbed in different directions.
