 ITEM 6054. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, pale moss green, 36 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the right, pontil scar, 5 1/8" H, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. New England, probably blown at a Connecticut Glass Works, 1790-1820.

Although I already have a number of nice Pitkin flasks in stock I simply could not pass up this startlingly beautiful example. Pale in color and boldly ribbed, the flask is blown from a particularly gritty batch of metal with small stones and frit throughout the glass. The form is perfect, as is the condition of this beautiful survivor.
