RARE AND BEAUTIFUL REDFORD, NY SARSAPARILLA OR BEER BOTTLE

 

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. Very rare.

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.
