RL11. "HARRISON'S / COLUMBIAN /
INK", yellow green, octagonal, jagged tubular pontil scar,
1 15/16"H x 2 1/4"D, inwardly rolled mouth, mint. Probably
blown at the Whitney Glass Works, Glassborro, NJ, 1840-1850,
rare in this unusual shade of yellow green, ex. Watt White collection.
This extraordinary ink was purchased from the Watt White sale
and it is a truly spectacular example of a sided Harrison's.
The color is not deep but it is BRILLIANT and as shown, the glass
is breathtakingly crude, with bubbles and foam galaxies throughout.
The base is somewhat deformed by either a manufacturer's tool
or a mold deformity and as seen below, this trait further bolsters
to the ink's charm and individuality. Sided Harrisons are RARE
in this delightful shade of yellow green and we are pleased to
offer this fine piece with our very highest recommendations!
