ITEM 7645. DIP-MOLDED SNUFF BOTTLE, clear olive green, square with beveled edges, pontil scar, 5 ½"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint bottle exhibiting the expected usage wear. Blown at a Connecticut Glass House, 1790-1820.

This early snuff is blown of "chestnut glass" and as a result it is lighter in weight and more delicate than is the norm for this form.
