CONNECTICUT (?) WIDEMOUTH INK OR MUCILAGE BOTTLE

 

ITEM 7319. WIDEMOUTH INK OR MUCILAGE BOTTLE, clear olive green, two-piece mold cylinder, pontil scar, 2 ¾"H, outwardly folded mouth, about mint (a small flake is located on the underside of the rolled mouth). Probably blown at a New England Glass House, 1820-1840.

This unusual ink or mucilage bottle is unlike anything we have previously encountered. Blown in a shape and construction manner much like the de Halsey inks, my sense is that this is a New England (probably Connecticut) made bottle of the first half of the Nineteenth century. With that said, the bottle may be earlier than catalogued, as it shares many characteristics of the chestnut bottles blown in the 1790-1820 period. It is, in any case, a very interesting and appealing early bottle in a highly unusual form.



PRICE: $765 plus shipping and insurance
