AMETHYST MIDWESTERN CHILD'S MUG
ITEM 6600. MINIATURE BLOWN GLASS
MUG, rich purple amethyst, cylindrical with applied solid glass
handle, pontil scar, 2 ¼"H, sheared and fire polished
mouth, mint. Blown at a Midwestern Glass House, 1820-1840.
This diminutive mug is unquestionably American and surprisingly
"gutsy" for its size. The metal and handle treatment
are reminiscent of the pattern molded mugs attributed to Pittsburgh
and it is my best guess that the piece was blown there.
