UNIQUE BOTTLE GLASS SOUTH JERSEY TUMBLER EX. MCKEARIN

ITEM 6749. DIP MOLDED TUMBLER, golden amber, ten-sided, pontil scar, 3 3/4"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. Blown at a South Jersey Glass House, C. 1840. ex. George McKearin and Dr. Gary Johnson.

Obviously blown to emulate the high-style flint pressed glass tumblers made in Pittsburgh, this Jersey made piece is instead made from ordinary bottle glass and created in a dip mold. The piece is unique to my knowledge and it retains McKearin's original (though now illegible) labels. Last owned by the late Dr. Gary Johnson, it is my understanding that the tumbler was purchased at one of the famed McKearin Pennypacker Sales in the early 1960s.



SOLD!
