STUNNING EMERALD GREEN 18TH CENTURY LONG NECKED UTILITY BOTTLE

 

ITEM 8920. MEDICINE OR UTILITY BOTTLE, emerald green, rectangular with wide chamfered corners, pontil scar, 7 ¾"H, outwardly folded mouth, mint. American, probably blown at a Suthern New Jersey Glass House, 1760-1790, very rare.

This crude and bubbly bottle appears to have been blown in a dip mold typically utilized in the production of snuff bottles and then expanded into this medicine type form. The glass color, texture and overall construction technique are all consistent with the glass blown in Southern New Jersey during the 18th century. Both Wistarburgh and Glassboro are probable origins for this remarkably beautiful and well preserved piece of 18th century American Glass.
