uNUSUALLY FORMED PINT-SIZED NEW eNGLAND PITKIN-TYPE FLASK

 

ITEM SP53. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, gold, 36 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the left, pontil scar, 6"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. New England, probably blown at a Connecticut Glass Works, 1790-1820.

We have bought and sold many Pitkin flasks over the years but none quite like this elongated half-pint. The flask's color, superb mold impression and overall form work perfectly in unison to produce an object of singular beauty.




SOLD!
