ITEM 9609. MASTER SNUFF BOTTLE, golden olive amber, rectangular with beveled edges, pontil scar, 6 5/16"H, sheared and tooled mouth, mint. American. Probably blown at a New England Glass House, 1820-1840. Rare size.

Holly and I have collected New England utility bottles for roughly two decades and over that time we have seen no more than a handful of these oversized snuffs. This fine example has Stew Putney provenance and it is a spectacular piece of glass with good transparency and loads of tiny bubbles. The bottle is in undamaged, attic quality condition. Please see the photo below to better understand the stature of this impressively sized bottle as compared to a typical snuff of the period.
