PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, 32 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the right, sea green, pontil scar, 6 11/16"H, a mint bottle exhibiting some expected usage wear. Blown at a Midwestern or New Jersey Glass House, 1810-1830. Scarce color.

Oft catalogued as Midwestern, it is my strong sense that this sturdy Pitkin-type flask was instead blown in Southern New Jersey, perhaps in Clementon. The bottle does exhibit some overall usage wear but the ribbing is strong, the form is pleasing and the color is uncommon for flasks of this type blown in this period. It is a winner for sure and for certain!
