Great Stoddard NH Demijohn!

$485.00

Here is a small size (scarce) demijohn, formed from a dip mold (no seams), produced at the Stoddard NH Granite Glass Works, 1840s. How do I know this? Well, this example has an iron pontil scar that looks like a flower petal, and I have seen this used on many pieces from Stoddard. This one is very small in size, 9 3/4″ tall, and maybe a 1/2 gallon? Anyways, it is a tough size to find. The glass is filled with character… bubbles, swirls, debris, etc. The applied lip is a sloping collared top, and quite sloppy… looks like a medicine bottle top. Very nice primitive piece in exceptional condition!
