ITEM 6188. BLOWN GLASS HAT WHIMSEY, deep "Congressville" green, cylindrical, pontil scar, 5 ¼" at the widest point, tooled rim, mint. American, probably blown at the Congressville Glass Works, Saratoga, New York, C. 1870, rare.

Blown with the aid of a dip mold, this generously sized hat was constructed using the same metal as one would find in a Saratoga Mineral water bottle. It is most likely that Morris Holmes was the gaffer responsible for making this attractive piece of Early American Glass.
