Rare Large-Sized Glazed Redware Bottle, New England origin, probably North Shore, MA, second quarter 19th century, unusual rotund form with tooled shoulder, acorn finial at base and long, tubular neck, the surface covered in a heavy lead glaze over a colorful green ground with reddish spots surrounded by orange rings. Incised stippling to acorn shell. The first of this form that we have seen. As the bottle does not sit flat, some light traces of wear to the shoulder indicate it may have been stored upside-down in some sort of rack. Wonderful form with excellent glaze. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, which recently surfaced in New England. Excellent condition with wear to rim, light surface wear to shoulder, and few minor in-the-firing contact marks to the finialed end of the bottle. L 14".
