ITEM 7768. SNUFF JAR WITH DEBOSSED
"F" ON BASE, bright, clear olive green, rectangular
with beveled edges, pontil scar, 4 ¼"H, about mint
(some iron-like residue on the base). New England, probably blown
at a Stoddard Glass Works, C. 1850. Ex. Bud Lane Jr. Collection.
Those who participated in the last Heckler Sale are by now well
acquainted with the name Bud Lane. A second generation collector,
the Lane Collection was accumulated over an eighty year period.
In addition to an exemplary collection of flasks, the Lanes also
accumulated a wonderful group of New England utility bottles,
of which this is one. Purely "green" in color, this
attractive Stoddard bottle features a very boldly debossed base
marking and exhibits loads of pleasing crudity.
