APRICOT PUCE NATIONAL BITTERS EAR OF CORN

 

ITEM JP0020. "NATIONAL / BITTERS" EAR OF CORN, shaded apricot puce, smooth base, 12 3/8"H, applied double collar, a mint bottle with a few freckles of interior haze. American, C. 1870, rare color.

This beautifully colored ear of corn figural is one of only a few known in this particular shade of color. The bottle is boldly embossed and quite crude with a number of stable potstones in the glass. We had some difficulty capturing the bottles exact shading with the camera and have included a comparison shot with a yellow amber bottle to better show the nuances of the color.

SOLD!
