NEW ENGLAND PITKIN-TYPE FLASK WITH WIDE MOUTH AND BOLD IMPRESION

ITEM 8752. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, 36 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the right, pale olive yellow, pontil scar, 6 3/4"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. New England, probably blown at a Hartford County, CT Glass House, 1790, 1820, scarce form.

Holly and I purchased this stunning Pitkin-type pint many moons ago, sold the piece to noted collector Stew Putney and repurchased the bottle this past fall. The flask's most obvious asset is its wider than normal neck and mouth but it is also boldly and tightly ribbed and beautifully light in color. Best of all, the bottle is free of damage or high point wear and it stands proud as a superior example of its type.


SOLD!
