Dealers Specializing in the Sale of Antique Bottles, Antique Glass and Period Decorative Arts


ITEM 9512. "U.S.A / HOSP. DEPT," golden yellow in the shoulder shading to apricot in the base with profuse puce striations, cylindrical, smooth base, 9 ¼"H, applied double collar, mint. American, 1860-1870. Bob Pattridge Collection.

Our current offerings include numerous USA Hospital Department bottles collected over several decades. This collection is arguably the most comprehensive ever assembled and we are proud to promote what we believe to be the finest examples in this large and impressive grouping.

Every collection has its "best" bottle and this is without question the star among stars. Not seen publically since the Pattridge Sale in 1983, this wildly colored example is in the discussion for best Hospital bottle PERIOD. I could wax rhapsodic for days about the bottle but will instead let the numerous pictures tell the story of this truly remarkable piece of glass.

Price: $9500 plus shipping and insurance
