ITEM 6467. FREEBLOWN BELLOWS BOTTLE, clear with white and cranberry loopings, elongated flask form with applied rigaree, feet, neck rings and body decoration, pontil scar, 11 3/8"H, applied double collar, mint. American or English, C. 1860.

Even the casual observer would immediately recognize that this object is a glassmaking tour de force. Profusely decorated with tooled and applied bands of glass, it was no easy trick to create such a complex object. The glassblower's skill is further evidenced by the evenly spaced multicolored loopings which display a degree of attentiveness not often found in the period. We have had several bellows bottles in the past but none as impressive as this beautiful example.
