EXTREMELY RARE NEW ENGLAND LONG NECKED ALE BOTTLE

 

ITEM 7442. LONG NECKED ALE BOTTLE, golden olive amber, two-piece mold cylinder, tubular pontil scar, 7 1/8"H, applied sloping collar with ring, an attic quality bottle with a TINY radiating stone in the neck. Blown at a New England Glass House, 1830-1850, extremely rare.

Having aggressively bought, sold and collected New England utility bottles for more than a decade it is not often that we happen upon a bottle that it unknown to us but such is the case. Since acquiring the piece I have learned that there is another example known, albeit with a large crack extending across the pontil scar. Highly unusual for any number of reasons, it is the wildly elongated neck and deeply pushed up base that make this an especially intriguing New England bottle.


SOLD!
