Final Bid
 

1. "WASHINGTON" / BUST OF WASHINGTON - "BALTIMORE GLASS WORKS" / MONUMENT, (GI-18), Baltimore Glass Works, Baltimore, Maryland, ca. 1825 - 1835, light to medium cobalt blue pint, open pontil sheared and tooled lip.

An in-making pontil crack starting at the edge of the pontil travels 1 1/2" up the Monument side and 2" up the Washington side. This is an extremely rare and unlisted color for this mould and the flaw, (although of size), takes little away from its overall appearance. In perfect condition the ‘sky’s the limit’ on this one!

 
7 $ 1,600
 

2. "WASHINGTON" / BUST OF WASHINGTON - "BALTIMORE GLASS WORKS" / MONUMENT, (GI-18), Baltimore Glass Works, Baltimore, Maryland, ca. 1825 - 1835, pale sapphire or ice blue pint, open pontil sheared and tooled lip.

Some moderate to heavy wear is mostly on the monument and a tiny open surface bubble is on a medial rib at the shoulder. A scarce mould that is in a light, but rare color! An extremely bold impression as good as any weÕve seen, which is probably the reason for the wear.

 
12 $ 550
