ITEM 7804. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK,
16 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the right, bright yellow green,
pontil scar, 6 ½"H, sheared and fire polished mouth,
about mint (some light exterior wear). Blown at a Southern New
Jersey Glass House, late 18th century.
This startlingly beautiful pattern molded flask is of the type
that we now know was blown at Wistarburgh thanks to recent archeological
evidence and the spectro-analytical work of Victor Owen.
