Important Silver Mounted “1749” English Dated Sealed Wine Bottle! #BB675 - For Sale
Important Silver Mounted “1749” English Dated Sealed Wine Bottle! #BB675
Here is a rare 1740’s dated English mallet black glass wine bottle that has been silver mounted and converted into a table serving bottle in the mid 19th century. The silver mounting is exquisite. We have never seen finer! The silver mounting appears to date in the 1740 - 1750 period so “great grandpa’s old wine bottle was probably converted into a fine serving bottle about 100 years later! Quit possibly to preserve the memory of great grandpa.
The bottle measures about 10” tall overall. Both bottle and heavy solid silver mounting are in perfect condition. Even the original cork with silver top (some shrinkage) is still present! Seal reads “P R 1749” Base of bottle has deep kick-up and “sand pontil”. Color is deep olive-amber but more green than amber.
