Early New England Utility Bottle!

Here is a rather scarce JAR or UTILITY bottle, New England, probably CT, 1780-1820. These early jars are made of the same earthy glass as the chestnut bottles of the era. This one is very crude and attractive! Applied globby top and a dainty pontil scar on the base. Freeblown or dip molded form. Wonderful glass color, clarity and condition! A somewhat different form as well.

This one is very crude and attractive! Applied globby top and a dainty pontil scar on the base. Freeblown or dip molded form. Wonderful glass color, clarity and condition! There is a chip on the base from the pontil mark. This one is a somewhat different form than you usually see.
