Opalescent Puff







Circa 1840 Medicinal Puff - Opalescent

This was dug in an early wood-lined privy barrel in north Philly. It's in its natural state, uncleaned because the stain is super pearly and iriidescent (bencia effect). The ring top is applied. The bottom open pontiled.


Height: 5 7/8"

Condition: perfect structurally with significant chips, dings, or cracks. Not much wear. It is stained but the type of stain that adds rather than subtracts. Pics don't do it justice.
