Mary Gregory Hand Blown Green Glass Jar With Stopper – Circa: 1880's
This lovely glass jar is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks or repairs. The hand blown ground glass stopper is also in excellent condition with no nicks or chips.
This amazing glass jar weighs 12.2 ounces is 6 inches tall and the base is 2 ¾ inches in diameter. The base also bears engraved hand written words that we were unable to identify completely but may refer to the place where this fabulous piece was created.
It is important to note that this exquisite antique Mary Gregory bottle green glass jar came from the private collection of the internationally renowned collector Dorothy-Lee Jones, creator and driving force behind the Jones Museum of Glass & Ceramics in Sebago, Maine. This non-profit, publically supported museum was unique for many reasons including its focus on teaching about all aspects of glass making and history in addition to its eclectic and internationally known collection. The museum had strong ties to such organizations as the Smithsonian, Corning Museum of Glass, Philadelphia Art Museum and several others. Sadly the museum, established in 1978, filed for bankruptcy in 2005.
Just imagine this magnificent green Mary Gregory hand blown jar with stopper gracing your sideboard or dining room table and adding much to your collection.
