ITEM 8504. DIP MOLDED SNUFF BOTTLE,
straw yellow, square, pontil scar, 4 ½"H x 3"SQ,
sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. Blown at a Connecticut
Glass House, 1790-1820, extremely rare form.
The pictures tell the story of this spectacular cube-shaped Early
American snuff bottle. We have actively collected New England
utility bottles for nearly two decades and this is the first
example of its type that we have encountered. The form, color
and glass character work in perfect unison, creating a truly
special late 18th/early 19th century artifact.
