18TH CENTURY VERTICALLY RIBBED PITKIN-TYPE FLASK

 

ITEM 6385. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, clear olive green, 30 vertical ribs, pontil scar, 6 3/8"H, sheared and tooled mouth, about mint (minor exterior wear and some interior haze). American, probably blown at a 18th century South Jersey Glass House, rare.

This early Pitkin-type flask is unlike any other we have encountered. The flask is blown from a metal reminiscent of the so-called "Wistarburgh" chestnuts and it displays the same suspended bubbles as one associate with that factory's products. The vertical ribbing is in itself quite an unusual feature but when combined with the flask's odd, coin-shaped form and probable date of manufacture the result is a uniquely satisfying whole.


Price: $2800 plus shipping and insurance
