ITEM 6335. PATTERN MOLDED GLOBULAR
BOTTLE, light, bright golden yellow with an olive cast, 24 ribs
swirled to the left, pontil scar, 9"H, outwardly folded
mouth, mint. Midwestern, probably blown at the Zanesville Glass
Works, Zanesville, OH, 1820-1840, rare size and color.
It has been our good fortune to own and offer three oversized
globular bottles in the past several years and of the three,
this is unquestionably the finest. Blown in the "best"
globular form (nearly spherical body with a short, straight neck)
and possessing tight, well-controlled ribbing, this singular
example offers a bold expression of the gaffer's artistry. The
unusually light, bright and olive tinged metal further enhances
the beauty of this truly special piece of Midwestern blown glass.
