ITEM 6094. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, clear olive green, 16 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the right, pontil scar, 5 5/8"H, crudely sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint flask exhibiting some usage wear. American, mid to late 18th century.

This rare and very early Pitkin-type flask is of the type that may well have been blown at Wistarburgh. The flask's color and rib count are consistent with known Wistarburgh products and the form of the piece is decidedly 18th century.
