 ITEM SP56. PITKIN-TYPE FLASK, clear olive green, 30 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the left, pontil scar, 6 ½"H, crudely sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint flask with a very crudely rendered mouth. American, probably blown at a New Jersey Glass Works, 1760-1800.

Charmingly misshapen and rather crudely blown, this unusual Pitkin-type flask was blown in a 30 rib mold and it is my best estimation that it is New Jersey in origin. The 30 rib count is quite unusual, as is the rather loose, waffle-style pattern.
