ITEM 7640. UTILITY JAR, olive green, square with widely beveled edges, pontil scar, 3 7/8"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, about mint (some minor exterior wear and several small, shallow open bubbles). American, late 18th/early 19th century, rare form.

Utility bottles of this form (nearly octagonal) are rarely encountered and this bubbly example is a particularly fine specimen. My sense is that this is a Connecticut made bottle from the early 19th century but one could also make the case for an 18th century South Jersey attribution. Either way, this is a good and early American made utility jar of startling visual appeal.
