These tapered cylindrical blown glass vessels are known as "flip" glasses due to their original use of serving a concoction by that name. This was hand-blown into a mold to achieve the paneling around the lower section, and displays the imperfections of early American glass-making. It has an engraved band of pointed ovals with cross hatching (a common design used on these).

Pontil scar and wear on bottom as expected. Nice bell tone, and clean. Probably New England, ca. 1800.

Size: Approximately 4" high, 3" top diameter.

Condition: No chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
