ITEM 9610. SARSAPARILLA OR BEER
BOTTLE, deep, brilliant aquamarine, cylindrical with conical
shoulders, pontil scar, 10 ¼"H, applied sloping collar,
mint. Blown at the Redford Glass Works, Redford, NY, 1838-1850.
This gutsy Redford, NY bottle was obviously made in a form more
typically seen in stoneware bottles of the period and it's likely
that it was used to contain a beer or sarsaparilla product. Two
identical bottles can be found in the Clinton County Historical
Society with firm ties to the Redford factory. This big, bold
and beautiful bottle is one of very few known outside of a museum.
