CRUDE NEW eNGLAND PITKIN-TYPE FLASK
ITEM SP52. PITKIN-TYPE
FLASK, yellow olive, 36 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the left,
pontil scar, 5 1/4"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint.
New England, probably blown at a Connecticut Glass Works, 1790-1820.
This funky little flask would be the perfect fit for the collector
who truly appreciates glass crudity. Typically blown from more
refined batches of metal, this singular Pitkin was instead produced
of metal from the bottom of the pot.
