1. “LYNCH & CLARKE / NEW YORK”, (Tucker, C-1-C), New York, ca. 1835 - 1845, olive green high shoulder quart, improved pontil base, applied double collar mouth.

A lengthy crack just above the base travels most of the way around the bottle. A 3/8” open surface bubble below the embossing has been filled in.

A rarely offered bottle, but in an even rarer unlisted pure green color! Yes it has damage, but due to the density of the color at the base is not readily seen!

Pristine condition, and loaded with trapped air bubbles and impurities, many are on the surface.

At some point in time the entire bottle was encased in wicker, but only the lower two-thirds remain. A prime example!
