Sealed Wine Bottle, Bladder Form, English, I / S Centering Small Diamond
Date/Period: 1730-1740’s


Sealed Wine Bottle, Bladder Form, English, I / S Centering Small Diamond, entire view

Material: Glass

Condition: The bottle is in excellent condition There is a small light-colored inclusion in
the seal which is original from the time of manufacture. The bottle is in remarkable
condition with one bruise on the bottom edge but no other damage. There is minimal
scratching on the sides, especially the flattened sides, as expected. There is some
internal staining. However, there are no string rim or mouth chips and no star cracks.

Additional Information: A rare transitional form of bottle between the onion
and the straight sided mallet. The manufacturing of the bottle began as an onion form
and then two opposing sides were marvered (flattened). The shape of the early wine
bottles made it difficult to store them in the cellar. The bladder bottles allowed the
bottles to be placed on their side, preventing the cork from drying out. While this was an
improvement in design, for some unknown reason, it was rarely made, and bladder
bottles are one of the rarest of all sealed bottle forms. This is a particularly good
example.

Blown Glass Sealed Wine Bottle, Half Size Squat Mallet, America Owned & Used
Made for Boston Silversmith Rufus Green
Date/Period: 1728 - SOLD


Blown Glass Sealed Wine Bottle, Half Size Squat Mallet, America Owned & Used Made for Boston Silversmith Rufus Green, entire view

Measurement: Height: 6.75"

Condition: Glossy surface, chips to sting lip with all else fine

Additional Information: Half size squat mallet form English sealed bottle made for
Rufus Greene, Boston silversmith (1707-1777) who traveled to England in 1728,
returning home to be married in the same year. Almost certainly he ordered a number of
these bottles while in England, probably to commemorate his marriage.
Sealed Bottles made for Americans are very rare. That this can be documented to a
Colonial Boston silversmith is quite remarkable.

Reference: See David Burton, Antique Sealed Bottles 1640-1900: And the Families that
Owned Them;
page 440, Chapter Eight – Sealed Bottles in Major Public
Collections…the author states, “The most important is a squat mallet bottle sealed R /
Greene / 1728, within a beaded border. Three examples are known: two are held in the
museum collection
[Museum of Fine Arts, Boston] and the third in a US private
collection
[subject example].
Rufus Greene (1707-1777) noted American silversmith, was apprenticed to William
Cowell Sr., active 1728 to 1749; married Katherine Stanbridge on December 10, 1728.
Subsequently a wealthy Loyalist merchant, active in colonial Boston, Massachusetts.

The engraving of this seal is excellent as is the impression…
Date/Period: 1770


Blown Glass Sealed Wine Bottle, Early Onion Form, Initials, Date…& MONTH The engraving of this seal is excellent as is the impression…, entire view

Measurement: Height: 6.5"

Condition: The bottle is in excellent condition; mostly glossy finish except scattered
superficial trivial areas of gloss breakdown as often encountered.

Additional Information: English sealed glass bottle, seal marked *M*/C*E/Apr/1700.
This is a bold, early onion of great dating to the first decade of the eighteenth century,
the magic "0" decade.
While initials and years are seen on many English bottles, the month is almost never
included…exceedingly rare. Dates on bottles are thought to represent a significant
event in the owner's life rather than vintage of contents. April 1700 must have been a
special time for this family.
Until now, this bottle has been unknown and is unrecorded in reference books.

Wine Bottle, Mallet, Cockerel Seal, English
Date/Period: c. 1730


Wine Bottle, Mallet, Cockerel Seal, English, entire view 1

Measurement: Height: 7"

Material: Black glass

Condition: Excellent condition except dullness to the surface suggesting it may have
spent time in the water, perhaps in a stream. Not chips or cracks.

Additional Information: This is an interesting bottle. The seal shows a cockerel which
most likely is the seal of a tavern as this is less likely an individual's crest, though that is
possible. The Cock Tavern was a common name throughout England. There was a
Cock ale house in the Strand in London and a Cock Inn in Leadenhall Street, London in
the eighteenth century and probably earlier.
