MW124. CATHEDRAL PICKLE JAR, brilliant aquamarine with a strong green tone, square with fancy cathedral arches, iron pontil scar, 11 7/8"H x 3 7/8"W, applied mouth, a mint bottle with a bean-sized bubble on the shoulder that is open at the surface and onionskin in depth. Probably blown at the Willington Glass Works, West Willington, CT, 1850-1860, ex. Norman C. Heckler collection.

This superb Willington, Connecticut pickle is a brighter than normal example of a bottle collecting "classic" that exhibits richer than normal color and features extremely bold embossing with the best possible mold definition. As shown, the glass is heavily whittled and decidedly "green" in tone. Best of all, the bottle is of attic quality with no post-manufacture damage whatsoever.
