PURE AMBER DIP MOLD SNUFF BOTTLE - PITTSBURGH?

 

ITEM 7298. DIP MOLD SNUFF BOTTLE, deep amber, rectangular, 4 7/16"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, about mint (some exterior wear). American, 1830-1850.

Although generically catalogued as simply "American," it is my sense that this is a Pittsburgh made bottle and not one blown in New England. I make this assessment by considering the color and nature of the glass (consistent with Pittsburgh made objects) and also by the manner of construction, most notably the unusually "slotted" dip mold in which the bottle was blown. It is the combination of these traits that lead me to conclude of an origin outside of New England and likely Pittsburgh.



PRICE: $165 plus shipping and insurance
