ITEM SP71. BLOWN THREE-MOLD DECANTER, (McK# GII-28), light to medium sea green, square with beveled edges, pontil scar, pint, flared mouth, cracked. Blown at the Keene Marlboro Street Glass Works, Keene, NH, 1820-1840, scarce. Ex. Roland Sallada Collection and pictured on Plate 5 in "Keene and Stoddard Glass" by Pappas and Lane.

Though it's surprisingly hard-to find, this decanter is definitely cracked but that still does not keep me from cataloguing it as the most aesthetically pleasing example of its type that I have seen. Noticeably out of square and more richly colored than most, this beauty is also distinguished by its wider than normal neck and delicately flared mouth. Unlike most, the piece was never ground for a stopper and as noted it is THE example pictured in the Lane and Pappas book.
