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.
