STODDARD, NH FREEBLOWN HANDLED JUG

 

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.
