EXCEPTIONAL OCTAGONAL NEW ENGLAND SNUFF BOTTLE

 

ITEM 8994. DIP MOLD SNUFF BOTTLE, olive green, octagonal, pontil scar, 4 3/8"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. Blown at a New England Glass House, 1790-1820, very rare form.

First period (1790-1820) New England bottles of eight equal sides are quite rare and have long been coveted by collectors. McKearin documents several jars of this type in American Glass, including an example that was almost certainly blown in the same dip mold used to produce this beautiful example. In nearly two decades of collecting utility type bottles we have encountered just over a handful of these elusive jars and were proud to offer this undamaged, fresh to the market example.
