ITEM 7103. DIP MOLDED SNUFF JAR, golden olive amber, rectangular, tubular pontil scar with some iron residue, 4 9/16"H, tooled and flared mouth, mint. Blown at a New England Glass House, C. 1830.

Retaining its original glass brilliance and showing few signs of wear, this perfectly preserved snuff jar is a superb example of its type. The bottle was likely blown in the 1830s, post-dating the "chestnut glass" snuffs made in Connecticut and pre-dating the two-piece molded snuffs that were later blown at Stoddard and other New England Glass Houses. Snuffs of this type were created with the use of shallow dip molds to give general shape and then expanded outside of the mold to completion.
