Pitkin bottle?

Hello, I was sure this was a pitkin flask. Can you check it out and let me know your thoughts? Thanks!!!!


  • Most people would say the Pitkin type flask implies that the bottle was made in the German half post method where a second layer of glass is pushed over the initial gather - such bottles have a noticeable ridge at the neck/shoulder (see examples both old and new here: http://www.bottlebooks.com/germanhalfpost/german_half_post.htm)

    Your bottle above is hand blown but is not half post.

    This is a 20th century modern remake of 18th c. Steigel type diamond pattern flasks. These were made by the Clevengers and other glass houses in New Jersey.

    I notice that you tried to tag this thread with a link to an ebay auction - it is ok if you want to add a link directly in a reply to this discussion.
