Medium emerald coloration, 8-sided, applied tapered blob collar - heavy iron pontil scar, ht. 6 7/8", near mint; (a 3/16" flake and a little minor roughness on a few of the corners edges at base, a tiny pinprick flake at edge of lip, otherwise perfect). A fantastic example of this rare New York State mineral water, and even more rare in this un-dug, 'attic-type' condition.
