Pontiled Miniature Case Gin






Circa 1820-1840 Pontiled Black Glass Miniature Case Gin, Circa 1820-1840

This is an amazingly crude gin from a collection of early New Orleans bottles. It has a sand chip pontil and tilts to the side. The crude flare lip is flared on one side but not the other, very uneven. The side panels are deeply indented, and it has overall marbled crude character. This bottle is a truly unique early gin that is hard to part with.
