ITEM 7761. HANDLED WHISKEY JUG, deep puce amethyst, globular body with applied solid glass handle, pontil scar, 8 ½"H, applied sloping collar, mint. American, probably blown at a Baltimore, MD Glass House, C. 1850, rare.

Although appearing quite dark in reflected light, strong backlighting reveals that this fine oversized whiskey jug is a deep puce amethyst in color. Our sense is that the jug is a Baltimore made piece but one could also make the case for it to have been blown in Southern New Jersey.
