OLIVE GREEN 31 RIB MIDWESTERN PITKIN FLASK

 

ITEM 7361. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, clear olive green, 31 ribs ribbed and swirled to the right, pontil scar, 6 1/4"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint flask exhibiting some usage wear at the base edge. American, probably blown at a Midwestern Glass House, 1810 to 1830, scarce rib count.

It is the large, unbroken bubble extending across the body of the piece that makes this flask a singular example. The flask's form, rib count and overall clarity make it particularly appealing to the eye.
