A most unusual free blown bottle
24 October 2015
Here are some really cool pictures and an email from Gene Baudouin about a most unusual free blown bottle. I posted it on the Peachridge Glass FaceBook page and the airwaves really lit up. As expected, the New England collectors were all over it. Gene replied in a later email that he had several offers in the first hours of it being posted. Obviously somebody knows Gene pretty well as I do not traditionally note contact information.
Ferdinand, I recently got this great little bottle in a collection that I bought. I guess that it must be a New England tobacco storage bottle. It is 5 and 3/4″ high, and 5 inches in diameter. Open tubular pontil. Wonderful swirls in the glass. Has its original carved wooden stopper. A collector in New England says that he has not seen anything like it…and it stands alone. Would any of your readers have any ideas about it? Thanks
