RARE 4 3/4" CONNECTICUT PITKIN-TYPE FLASK

 

 ITEM SP50. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, clear olive yellow, 36 ribs swirled to the left, pontil scar, 4 3/4"H x 3 3/8"W at widest point, sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint flask exhibiting some minor wear at the highpoints. New England, probably blown at a Connecticut Glass Works, 1790-1820, an unusually small Pitkin-type flask.

This brightly colored little gem is the smallest of the Pitkin-type flasks in the collection we are currently offering, standing well shy of 5" in height. The bottle is unusually thick and heavy for its size yet the impression remains quite good.


SOLD!
