YELLOW GREEN MIDWESTERN PITKIN FLASK - UNUSUAL FORM

 

ITEM 7362. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, brilliant yellow green, 24 ribs ribbed and swirled to the left, pontil scar, 6 15/16"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 color.

Noticeably taller and narrower than is the norm, this brightly colored Midwestern Pitkin-type flask is an especially successful expression of the glassblower's art. The flask's color, form and strength of impression are each exceptional attributes.


SOLD!
