RARE PLAIN BACK CONGRESS & EMPIRE QT YELLOW OLIVE!

ITEM 6621. "CONGRESS & EMPIRE SPRING CO. / C / SARATOGA. N.Y.," (Tucker# C-14:A Type 3), bright yellow olive, two-piece mold cylinder, smooth base with embossed centering circle, quart, applied sloping collar with ring, about mint (shallow, 1/16" flake on the lower bevel of the applied collar). American, C. 1875, rare.

Catalogued by Tucker as "rare" in this color, this crude and bubbly Congress quart is also quite beautiful. The bottle is one that Holly and I owned in the 90s and it is a pleasure to reacquire the piece and again offer it to the collectors.

SOLD!
