ITEM 6454. DIP MOLDED STORAGE JAR, golden olive amber, pontil scar, 9 1/16"H x 6 ¾"D, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. New England, probably blown at a Stoddard Glass Works, C. 1850.

Blown with aid of a dip mold typically reserved for creating one gallon demijohns, this Stoddard jar is a rare and important survivor. The color and texture of the metal are identical to that of the flasks blown at the Granite Glass Company and I strongly believe the piece to have been blown there. As shown, the jar is teeming with sinuous strings of glass and there several pockets of unmelted frit that add further character. Several patches of "bloom" on the exterior add further evidence of the jar's origins, as this phenomenon is regularly encountered with Stoddard-made objects.
