 ITEM SP51. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, bright yellow olive, 36 ribs loosely swirled to the right, tubular pontil scar, 5 1/4"H x 3 3/4"W at widest point, sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint flask with a manufacturer's touch mark beside the pontil scar. New England, probably blown at a Connecticut Glass Works, 1780-1820, a most unusual Pitkin flask.

This loosely ribbed half-pint is among my favorites of the collection we are currently offering, as it excels in all regards. Most notable however, is the unusually wide spacing between the ribs, which gives the appearance of a basket weave pattern when displayed in a window.
