ITEM 6778. PATTERN MOLDED BOWL
IN THE SHAPE OF A HAT, brilliant yellow green, 24 ribs, pontil
scar, 7 ¾"D at the widest point, outwardly folded
rim, a mint bowl exhibiting the expected usage wear. Blown at
the Zanesville Glass Works, Zanesville, OH, 1820-1840, unique.
Ex. Norman C. Heckler, Sr. Collection
This extraordinary bowl was without question started in a 24
rib dip mold typically utilized in the creation of globular bottles
and then tooled to its current form. Evidence of usage wear on
the bowl's interior shows that this was an object meant to be
used, not simply a decorative piece. Formerly included in the
noted collection of Norman C. Heckler, Sr., this is a very important
piece of Ohio pattern molded glass with loads of eye appeal.
There are no known counterparts to this piece.
