Decorative EARLY monument cologne, OP, perfect!
- Source: eBay
Here is an wonderful find from an early privy near the Baltimore area. This is an 1820-30s monument style cologne bottle that is the cutest little highly-decorated piece! Nice columns and archways, along with a cross-hatch pattern surround a maiden in the center. The glass is clean and aqua, and probably from the Boston or Pittsburgh area. It is identical to Plate 109, row 3, #10 in McKearin's American Bottles & Flasks and Their Ancestry (page 396). Nice open pontil base and inwardly rolled lip.Condition is excellent... you would never know that it was dug. There is a tiny bit of residue that will wash out. Just a wonderful figural cologne in a desirable miniature size (3 3/4" tall)! A WONDERFUL early figural cologne bottle!! Buyer pays shipping. 7 day return policy if not as described.
