LABELED NEW ENGLAND SNUFF BOTTLE WITH DETAILED EAGLE

 

ITEM 7527. LABELED "RAPPEE SNUFF" BOTTLE, golden amber, rectangular with beveled edges, pontil scar, 4 3/8"H, sheared, tooled and fire polished mouth, a mint bottle with some label loss as shown. Blown at a New England Glass House, 1830-1850.

It is both the earthy label featuring a fiercely depicted eagle and the original cork that takes this already wonderful snuff bottle to the next level. The bottle itself is "boxier" than most and in fact, I do not recall seeing or owning another snuff blown in this exact mold.


SOLD!
