ITEM 9607. "GUILFORD MINERAL / (monogram) / GUILFORD / VT / SPRING WATER," grass green, cylindrical, smooth base, quart, applied sloping collar with ring, about mint. American, 1870-1880.

At one time plentiful the supply of Guilford quarts has dried up noticeably over the years and we do not happen upon then often these days. Notoriously plain, it is a pleasure to offer this highly whittled example in a somewhat different color than expected. The piece was owned by pioneer mineral water collector Buzz Owen and prized for its overall crudity and beauty. Many other examples were culled over the years in order to keep this unusually fine specimen.
