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.
