ITEM 6793. MINIATURE PAN WITH
BEEHIVE TOOLING, aquamarine, cylindrical, pontil scar, 1 1/8"H
x 2 ¼"D, mint. Blown at a Southern New Jersey Glass
House, C. 1840, extremely rare.
This extraordinary miniature pan is another of the fresh to the
market South Jersey objects included in our current offerings.
The beehive tooling technique (a means of simulating threading)
is peculiar to the Southern New Jersey Glass Houses and rarely
encountered. The use of this technique in conjunction with this
form is to our knowledge unique. It is my strong belief that
the object is equal in quality to the small but important group
of South Jersey miniatures first collected by McKearin and subsequently
owned by Elsholz and the Levines.
