SUPERB CONNECTICUT UTILITY CYLINDER - BRILLIANT GREEN!

 

ITEM 7104. DIP MOLDED UTILITY JAR, bright forest green, cylindrical, pontil scar, 4 ¼"H, outwardly folded mouth, mint. New England, probably blown at a Connecticut Glass House, 1800-1830.

Blown using the same metal used in the chestnut bottles of the period, this hefty little jar is in fact much rarer than the ubiquitous chestnut. Of special note are the beautifully formed mouth and the startlingly beautiful green color of the glass with which the bottle was blown. Both the bottle's color and metal quality point towards Pitkin or Willington as a probable place of origin.
