ITEM 8930. EAGLE / "NEG
/ CO" - MASONIC, (McK#GIV-27), greenish aquamarine, pontil
scar, pint, sheared and fire polished mouth, about mint (the
base has been lightly polished). Blown at the New England Glass
Company, Cambridge,MA, 1819-1826.
Notorious for their typically weak embossing, this fine GIV-27
is instead a wonderful example with easily legible lettering
and crisp mold definition. The center of the base has been polished
for the bottle to stand and because of the heavy wear covering
portions of the polished area it would appear that this was done
soon after (if not a part of) manufacture.
