ITEM 6792. BLOWN WINE GLASS, deep aquamarine with subtle olive yellow swirling in the applied foot, generally cylindrical with a drawn stem and applied foot with light crimp marks, pontil scar, 3 7/16"H, mint. Blown at a Southern New Jersey Glass House, C. 1830.

It is likely that this is the earliest of the blown glass we recently acquired from a Southern New Jersey estate and it may in fact be older than cataloged. The piece is to my eye superior to the few bottle glass wines we have encountered in the past, as the proportions, thickness of the metal and chunkiness of the applied foot work in perfect unison to create an appealing whole. As a result of the object's economy of line and relative simplicity of form, the wine has an undeniable appeal that would have merited inclusion in "American Glass" or "Glass Gaffers of New Jersey."
