ITEM 6045. "GRIFFITH, HYATT & CO. / BALTIMORE, MD," shaded yellow apricot, globular bottle with indented label panel and applied solid glass handle, tubular pontil scar, 7 5/16"H, applied square collar, an attic quality bottle with a manufacturer's pontil crack. American, probably blown at the Baltimore Glass Works, Baltimore, MD, 1846-1860, scarce bottle in a rare color.

Yes, it is cracked. BUT, this gorgeous bottle is still as good a Griffith and Hyatt as I can recall seeing. The bottle is not amber but rather a funky yellow apricot as you might see in some of the very expensive Baltimore flasks. In addition, the glass is crude and whittled with a few striations of color further enhancing the bottle's appearance. The damage undoubtedly occurred during manufacture and unless you display your bottles "bottoms up" you will quickly forget that it has a flaw. If you have a string of Griffith and Hyatt bottles or a collection of whiskeys this is one that you don't want to miss.
