ITEM 7105. DIP MOLDED SNUFF JAR, brilliant yellow with a slight olive cast, rectangular, 4 5/8"H, crudely sheared mouth, mint. New England, probably blown at a Connecticut Glass House, 1790-1820, very scarce.

Over the years it has been our pleasure to handle a handful of these yellow Connecticut snuff jars and each exhibits a similar glass texture that features pits, stones, swirls and a multitude of foam galaxies. Snuffs of this type are among the earliest blown in New England and it is likely that they were blown at either Pitkin, Mather's Works in East Hartford or at the short lived Glastonbury Glass Works in the late 18th or very early 19th century. Dramatically asymmetrical, beautifully colored and almost impossibly crude, this is a bottle any collector
