ITEM 7181. THREE-PIECE MOLD WHISKEY,
golden olive amber, cylindrical, iron pontil scar, 11"H,
applied sloping collar with ring, a mint bottle in need of cleaning
with soap and water. New England, probably blown at a Stoddard
Glass House, Stoddard, NH, C. 1850.
This attractive Stoddard-type whiskey bottle is the last of the
"good bottles" recently discovered in the small Addison
County Vermont town of Ripton. The bottle is HAMMERED with whittled
and blown in a very pleasing shade of golden amber bottle glass
with numerous bubbles and impurities. This is NOT an average
example but rather a superior specimen of a New England (probably
Stoddard) made three-piece whiskey bottle.
