spectacular connecticut serving bottle or table decanter


ITEM 7346. SERVING BOTTLE OR TABLE DECANTER, clear olive green, cylindrical, pontil scar, 7 1/8"H, sheared and tooled mouth, mint. Blown at a Connecticut Glass Works, 1790-1820.

Bottles of this type are contemporaneous to the ubiquitous chestnut bottle but far more difficult to obtain. A predecessor to the blown three mold decanters of the 1820s and 1830s, these handsome bottles were used on the table as a means of serving liquids. Blown in several different sizes and rough capacities, this mid-sized example is a particularly appealing specimen with a distinctive offset neck and a brilliant luster.
