ITEM 8753. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, 36 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the right, pale olive yellow, pontil scar, half-pint (5 7/8"H), sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. New England, probably blown at a Hartford County, CT Glass House, 1790-1820.

With its tight, bold ribbing, transparent glass and brilliant luster, this top shelf Pitkin flask is truly an exceptional example of its type. The flask is of attic quality and it was formerly included in the collection of the discerning Stew Putney.
