Fantastic Early New England (or Northeast) Bowl on A Stand!



This one is a gem, and one of only a few known examples. This is a deep aqua bowl on a nice compressed ball stem and wide heavy foot! 1840s, probably either NY or NH. I lean more towards Suncook NH, as it is a very similar match to an item in the Currier Museum (which was gifted by a descendant of the Suncook factory), although it has a bright Redford NY glass look as well. Doesn’t really matter… it is an awesome piece that “stands” on its own! The dimensions (4 3/4″ tall, 4″ base, 4″ rim) are larger than the couple other known examples. I have owned this one for almost 10 years… and proudly displayed! It is a great piece of tableware, with the appropriate wear inside the bowl, and along the base. Very elegant and symmetrical form, great color, solid pontil base. Just a fantastic piece of Early American Glass!!!
