ITEM 9312. "FROM THE / LABORATORY
- OF / G.W. MERCHANT / CHEMIST - LOCKPORT, N.Y.," bright
blue green, rectangular with concave beveled edges, iron pontil
scar, 5 ½"H, applied sloping collar, about mint (minor
exterior scuffing and a wisp of interior haze). Blown at the
Lockport Glass Works, Lockport, NY, C. 1850.
Decidedly "bluer" than most, this handsome Merchant
bottle is an excellent example with pleasing glass crudity and
a strong mold impression.
