 ITEM SP37. FREEBLOWN DEEP BOWL, medium to deep green, cylindrical, huge tubular pontil scar, 6 1/4"H x 10 1/2"D, outwardly folded collar, manufacturer's pontil crack and several open surface blisters on the base. American, possibly blown at the New Geneva Glass Works, Pittsburgh, PA, 1800-1840.

OK, let's get this over with right off the bat - this soulful bowl is not technically perfect but the so-called "pontil crack" is no more than a manufacturer's flaw and simply the price one must pay for a prehistoric scar of this type. The bowl is otherwise an oft used but obviously well-loved piece of tableware with generous size, GREAT color and a widely folded rim reminiscent of documented bowls blown at New Geneva in the first decade of the 19th century. If we did not already own a similar bowl you would not see this fabulous piece with a price tag. It is GREAT!
