Black Glass Sealed and Dated Wine Bottle, M.L. / 1766, Squat Cylinder, Olive Green
English, 1776
Straight sided body with basal “kick up.” [ML] initials are yet to be identified. - SOLD


Antique Black Glass Sealed and Dated Wine Bottle, English, 1776, entire view

1776 is a magical year for US citizens as it was the year of the signing of our Declaration of Independence. While English sealed bottles dated 1776 do not commemorate that momentous occasion, for US collectors, the date adds interest. Not many bottles are dated 1776. At the time David Burton wrote his book: Antique Sealed Bottles 1640-1900 and the families who owned them, he had identified only 26 bottles dated 1776. While this bottle is one that is listed in the book on page 761, no photographs were available to include with the entry. Photographs of this bottle will be included in the next volume (Vol. 4) of the book to be published soon.
(There is a chip on the string rim which has been filled so that it is not noticeable (see photo). It is otherwise in mint condition with full gloss; H: 10” Base: 4.5”)
