We consider this to be an important early American pattern molded bottle. Attributed to Pittsburgh, PA circa 1800 to 1830, a very rare and exciting “new find” from a small auction in Ohio, Sold
Note: American vertical ribbed globular bottles are rare. Most of the known examples are aqua or some shade of amber in color. Green examples are extremely rare. This one has outstanding form, brilliant green color, an extremely rare rib count and is the second tallest vertical ribbed globular bottle we have seen.
