edge flake). Blown at the Keene Marlboro Street Glass House,

This truly exceptional blown three mold decanter is one of four
known examples and one of only two in private hands. The other
examples can be found in the Toledo Museum of Art, Winterthur

on Cape Cod and sold in Heckler Auction #5 for $9900.
