ITEM SP54. PITKIN-TYPE
FLASK, clear olive green, 36 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the
right, pontil scar, 5 3/8"H x 3 1/2" at widest point,
sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint bottle with a small manufacturer's
pontil flake or tool mark. New England, probably blown at a Connecticut
Glass Works, 1790-1820.
Although the vertical ribbing is not terribly strong, this startlingly
pretty little Pitkin is blown in the best possible shade of Connecticut
green and near perfectly formed.
