Circa 1850 J. BOARDMAN Sided Cobalt Blue New York Mineral Water

This is an 8-sided deep cobalt mineral water soda from New York. It has an applied taper top and iron pontiled bottom.

Embossed: (5-pointed star on shoulder) // J. BOARDMAN & CO // - // NEW YORK // - // MINERAL WATERS // - // THIS BOTTLE / IS NEVER SOLD

Height:  7 3/4" 
Color: deep cobalt blue

Condition: the shoulder on one panel has an in-making large open bubble that is fully annealed, natural crudity. Otherwise, it's almost perfect structurally, just a bit of roughness over about 1/4" of the underside of the taper top collar. Never tumble polished, natural glowy patina but some spotty wear and dullness, and someone scratched across the pontil residue. Great character.

Reference Number:  GW313

Price: $375
