OVERSIZED 18TH CENTURY SOUTH JERSEY CHESTNUT BOTTLE

 

ITEM 9294. CHESTNUT BOTTLE, clear olive green, pontil scar, 10 ¾"H, crudely applied mouth, a mint bottle exhibiting the expected light usage wear. American, probably blown in an 18th century New Jersey Glass House. Scarce size.

This big, beautiful chestnut bottle is a hard to find 18 century survivor that was likely blown either at Wistarburgh or one of the contemporaneous glass houses owned or operated by the Stangers. The piece comes from an old time collection that was assembled by a 1930s artist who bought bottles to use them as "props" for his oil on canvas still life paintings.
