ITEM 7778. FANCY COLOGNE BOTTLE
WITH MATCHING PRESSED STOPPER, clear flint glass, square with
bulbous neck, pontil scar, 8 3/8" to top of stopper, flared
mouth ground for a stopper, bottle is mint, stopper has several
chips on its underside. American, probably blown at the Boston
and Sandwich Glass Works, Sandwich, MA, 1820-1840, very rare.
Never before have we encountered this bottle with the added details
of a factory cut neck and original pressed stopper. Likely blown
contemporaneously with the blown three mold decanters of the
period, we are of the strong belief that this rare bottle was
blown at Sandwich.
