J. & R. Dunster London - A Scarce Stoddard, New Hampshire Bottle:
A scarce bottle that was blown from that famous Stoddard, N. H., ox-blood colored glass.The style is the sameas the C. A. Richards bottle. It stands 9 1/2" tall, and is about 2 3/4" square. The lip is a wide, sloping band with a flow of glass coming out from underneath it that sitson a short neckthat ends inrounded shoulders. The base is flat for 5/16" then it drops into a sunken dome. The body consists of four, flat panels with arched tops. The corners are beveled. One panel is embossed in two, vertical lines as follows; J. & R. LONDON . The glass has a wonderful texture to it with many, tiny bubbles, a small one and a large one. There are some wavy lines in the body and some fold marks in the lip that at first glance look like a crack but I have studied them with a glass and am very sure they are not. The only thing I can find wrong with the piece is a tiny fleabite to the lip that unfortunately I just did while trying to study the lip. This is a great bottle that will surely add to any collection of Stoddard glass.

O. for me. I will do my best to expedite the shipping of your purchase but please bear with me as things are out of my control.
