18TH CENTURY PITKIN-TYPE FLASK - WISTARBURGH?

 

ITEM 7434. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, 16 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the right, bright yellow green, pontil scar, 6"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint flask exhibiting the expected usage wear. American, probably blown at a New Jersey Glass House, mid to late 18th century.

Likely New Jersey and quite possibly Wistarburgh in origin, this appealing flask is a rare 18th century survivor. The flask's color, mold impression and overall aesthetic appeal are each superior and the resulting whole is a particularly successful example of its type.
