Black Glass Rickett's Quart






Circa 1840 Pontiled Black Glass Quart Ale - Rickett's Bristol Glass Works

This is the nicest Ricketts I have seen. They are usually found in the pint size and the bottom embossing is typically very muddy or worn. This one is the larger quart and the embossing is very crisp and large font. It was blown in a 3-part mold and has an applied double taper top. The glass has great, wavy and hammered character. Great condition!
