 ITEM SP55. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, yellow with an olive tone, swirled to the left, 36 ribs, pontil scar, 5 1/4"H x 3 3/4"W at widest point, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. New England, probably blown at the Pitkin Glass Works, East Hartford, CT, 1790-1820.

Primarily yellow with just a slight olive tone, this wonderful Pitkin flask would serve as the perfect antidote to those folks who mistakenly believe that the early New England factories did not produce "beautifully colored" bottles. As pretty (or prettier) than the Baltimore and Dyottville flasks blown half-a-century or more later, this early 19th century piece is truly a joy to behold!
