A black glass collectors dream. A freeblown sealed mallet in a transitional form - from a squat wine shape to a cylinder wine shape. This beautiful English bottle is 10" high and sports an applied downtooled lip and string rim. The pontil is a typical British one of the period. Now for the bonus, this bottle has a history. It was found in the cellar of Sir Reginald Pole-Carew and bears the seal of the Carew family of Devonshire. The seal consists of a mainmast with a seated demi-lion. All in all a very nice bottle.
