ITEM 7258. FREEBLOWN GLOBULAR BOTTLE, pale but brilliant olive green, pontil scar, 10 1/2"H, crudely applied mouth, about mint (a pinhead sized surface stone at the base edge is surrounded by an inconsequential bruise). New England, probably blown at an early Connecticut Glass Works, 1790-1830.

Nicely proportioned and brimming with bubbles, this much better than normal Connecticut globular bottle is a delight to the seasoned eye. A foam galaxy of tiny bubbles and impurities lends the bottle a sense of fluidity, giving the whole an unusually dramatic appearance, especially when backlit or displayed in a sunny window.
