Circa 1850 Calabash Flask - GI-103 Jeny Lind / Glasshouse
This is listed as scarce by McKearin and it's a terific example. It's very stout and boldly embossed. Attributed to the Whitney Glass Works, New Jersey. The embossing impression is strong. Large open pontiled scarred base, and the top is an applied taper. Loads of seed bubbles and character.
Embossed: JENY LIND / (picture of Jenny Lind within a wreath) / (picture of glass house)
Height: 10 5/8"
Condition: near mint - perfect structurally (no chips, dings, etc), pretty clean, just the normal base wear.
