ITEM 7429. HANDLED JUG, bright
orange amber, cylindrical with applied solid glass handle, tubular
pontil scar, 5 ½"H, applied sloping collar, mint.
Blown at a Stoddard Glass Works, Stoddard, NH, C. 1855, rare.
Not to be confused with the somewhat later jugs of similar form
blown in Baltimore, this rare bottle is in fact a Stoddard product
that was found in a Southern New Hampshire attic. We have seen
just a handful of these jugs over the years with this unquestionably
the finest due to the spherical nature of the body and perfectly
proportioned handle. It is interesting to note that the applied
sloping collar is formed by the same tool responsible for creating
the mouth of a Kimball's Jaundice Bitters.
