ITEM 9379. UTILITY CYLINDER OR
INK, clear olive green, cylindrical, tubular pontil scar, 4 5/16"H,
delicately flared mouth, a mint, attic quality bottle with an
extra bit of glass on the exterior that occurred during production.
Blown at a New England Glass House, C. 1850.
Definitely New England and ostensibly "Stoddard," this
attractive utility cylinder is delightfully crude and attractive.
The extra bit of glass adhered to the body is a result of excess
glass (from the previous bottle blown in the same mold) that
makes it a singular example exhibiting the clues of hand production
at a rapid pace.
