Pontiled Lager - Rau, Philadelphia







Circa 1845-1850 Late Lager - Friedrich Rau, Philadelphia

This uncommon Philly squat has sloping shoulders, a late lager style. The top is an applied double taper. Iron pontiled base with lots of residue.

Embossed: FRIEDRICH / RAU / PHILAD..A // R (fancy letter)

Height: 7 1/2 "  
Color: deep green

Condition: near perfect structurally - only issue is a 1/4" spot of roughness on the collar. An uncleaned bottle with some patchy stain and overall light scratchiness that would polish clean nicely. Nice natural state on a late lager.

Reference Number: GW131

Price: $199
