3 ¾ ”h., Brilliant yellow green, soda lime with possibility of lead from cullet, ovoid shape body curving inward at midsection then flaring outward at spout with , pattern molded with fifteen diamonds over flutes, beautiful sculpted top, applied semi ear shaped handle crimped with good curl, applied short cylindrical and tapered foot, pontil scar; attributed to Mantua , Ohio, c. 1822, mint condition; possibly one of two known to exist, see the exhibition of Mr. John Hays Hammond, jr, originally assembled by Leslie Buswell, collection courtesy of Mrs. William Greig Walker, lot no, 100, in light green, McKearin says “ An almost unique specimen in this color, probably an Ohio or Midwestern piece in the purest Stiegel tradition. This creamer is made from the fifteen diamond over flutes half pint flask mold, pictured in Bottles, Flasks and their Ancestory, by McKearin, Wilson, plt.97, no, 2, brilliant yellow green, half pint. Tableware from Mantua Ohio patterned with 15 diamonds is extremely rare and near impossible to find. To date there are two pans in yellow green, both in private collections, and a sugar bowl in yellow green in the Corning museum . Other rare artifacts include a 15 diamond hat in yellow green and the only known Mantua 15 diamond inkwell made in aqua. All and all this is one of the finest pattern molded Ohio creamers known and likely made by an 18th century glass blower or the son of an 18th century glass blower, it is a jewel! The color is rich and beautiful and the impression is as good as it gets for the 15 diamond which is often overblown; one of the finest footed creamers from the Midwest, and one that exemplifies the westward expansion in relation to the term Ohio/Stiegel.


Absolutely stunning mint condition, it is flawless!
