Larger Blacking Bottle w/nailheads!

$265.00

Here is an 1830-40s New England blacking bottle that is relatively larger than usual, standing at 5″ tall, in a beautiful golden amber color! Looks like a Keene or Stoddard NH bottle, this one has two round mold marks that are often referred to a nailheads or rivets. Anyways, I have only seen a couple of these over the years, and this particular example has been in my collection for many years. Super character, open pontil base, and sheared lip. Tough to improve upon this scarce mold!
