    Clear glass, height 4", smooth base, excellent condition with just some light haze.

  7. Swirled Rib bottle Click to view photo
    Light olive green color with swirled ribs sort of like a pitkin flask, small pontil hole mark in bottom. Since glass is not very crude but heavy and thick with smooth pontil, must assume this is a reproduction bottle. In fact, I've learned from Sean Jones sbj3a@virginia.edu that a vase like this is sold in the gift shop at a glass blowing house in Jamestown, Virginia.

  8. WHITTEMORE BOSTON / FRENCH GLOSS Click to view photo
    Citron glass, height 4 5/8", BIM with smooth base, rectangular shaped, near mint condition.
