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.
