ITEM 9916. MEDICINE BOTTLE,
bright forest green, rectangular with beveled edges, tubular
pontil scar, 5 7/8"H, applied sloping collar, mint. Blown
at the Mount Vernon Glass Works, Vernon, NY, C. 1840, rare. Ex.
This unembossed "Covert's
type" medicine bottle is actually less often seen than the
lettered examples and of those few I have encountered this is
the finest. The bottle has all of the hallmarks of Mount Vernon
production, including glass color, glass texture, pontil type
and mouth application. The glass is pure green, filled with
bubbles and it exhibits a pleasingly whittled surface. There
is no damage or wear.
