The color is superb, the glass making is the finest. This unique and unusual example of 19th century glass was made by the Sandwich Glass factory. Circa 1825-50 (see No. 3237 in Barlow & Kaiser, Guide to Sandwich Glass Witch Balls, Containers & Toys, 1987).

This is a cover ball and it was used as a cover on food containers or jars. The color is outstanding and a fabulous example of the gorgeous blue-green color only Sandwich could make.

The ball about 2 3/4 inches diameter and has thick walls so it is heavier than a packing ball. There is a small knob or nipple on the top where it was removed from the blow stick. Bit of ash on the inside from a dirty blow pipe and a touch of moisture residue on the inside.

Even so, this is a scarce and rarely found example and makes a great addition to any collection.
