GIII-2 Quart Decanter, Olive Green, Mount Vernon Glass!

$4,250.00

One of my first GREAT pieces of Early American Glass was one of these fine decanters that I purchased from Mark Vuono roughly 25 years ago! This is an iconic and beautiful piece. It is a QUART GIII-2 decanter, produced at the Mount Vernon Glass Works, 1820-30s. This particular example is a beautiful shade of olive green, and with good clarity (they can be muddy). Another fine feature is the exaggerated flared lip, nearly twice the size as normally seen! This one was in an older collection (base sticker) and it is the first time I have ever seen it. It is one that you don’t forget! Nice pontil base, excellent mold impression, overall fantastic luster! This one is close to being perfect, outside of two narrow burst bubbles going into the inside of the neck. You can feel them, but they don’t distract visually at all. This is a GREAT example of American Glass!
