ITEM SP66. BLOWN THREE MOLD DECANTER, (McK# GIII-19), bright, light forest green, cylindrical, pontil scar, quart, sheared and fire polished mouth, an attic quality bottle with a hard-to-find radiating potstone in the shoulder. Blown at the Keene Marlboro Street Glass Works, Keene, NH 1820-1840, scarce mold, rare color.

Never let it be said that the New England Glass Houses didn't make bottles in pretty colors. Blown in a lovely shade of forest green bottle glass, this quart-sized Keene decanter commands immediate attention and elicits the question of "have I seen one like that before?" (The answer, at least for this seasoned cataloguer, is "NO!") The noted radiating stone is a small one (three tight 3/16" lines) and well-hidden by the complexities of the mold. This is a truly beautiful piece of blown-three mold and a singular example of a bottle collecting classic.
