Pontiled WHITNEY Cylinder







Circa 1855 Whitney Glass Works Whiskey Cylinder - New Jersey

This is an exceptional attic mint example of a Patent shouldered Whitney cylinder, one of the nicer ones I've seen. The pontil is weak but probably because the bottle looks to have been lightly tumble polished. The top is a hand applied double taper.
