NEW ENGLAND FLARED LIP UTILITY OR INK BOTTLE

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.

SOLD!
