Mary Gregory Glass Dresser Bottle with Octagonal Stopper
The bottle is square with a tall frosted neck and a tall stopper, frosted at the base. Both bear a pattern of arches at the end of the frosted segment, and this is divided into eight sections. The octagonal motif is repeated up the stopper and down the neck to the shoulders of the bottle. The bottle itself is decorated with the dragonfly, birds and foliage common to bottles in the Mary Gregory style. The underside of the bottle is impressed with a star-burst design. There is no maker's mark.
The bottle measures 4" tall, 6" with the stopper; stopper alone is 2 7/8" tall x 1 3/4" at widest point. Bottle is 1 3/8" in diameter at the mouth and 2" square at shoulders. Its condition is near perfect with a few teeny bubbles, inside the glass near a top corner, which do not show unless one looks for them.
This is a lovely example of art glass to add to a collection; but it could also be used!
