Figured bottle: Jenny Lind
Overall: 10 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 in. ( 26.7 x 14 x 10.8 cm )
embossed: on obverse; "JENNY LIND" embossed: on reverse; "FISLERVILLE GLASS WORKS" typed: on tag; "HERB SALAD/ WINE VINEGAR flavored with herbs, garlic, and shallots/ from Juniper Hills/ HOUSE OF HERBS, Inc./ Canaan, Conn./ 1 quart/ WINE VINEGAR" typed
Light-green, non-lead glass bottle blown in a full-sized, three-part mold (McKearin GI-107a) with a bust of Jenny Lind beneath the inscription "JENNY LIND" and above a spray of foliage on the obverse, with a glass house below the inscription "FISLERVILLE GLASS WORKS" on the reverse; bottle is calabash-shaped with molded ribs and an applied and tooled collar and a rough pontil mark; bottle is sealed with red wax and contains liquid vinegar.
This bottle is a counterfeit of a nineteenth-century Jenny Lind bottle. While the general shape and decoration of the bottle is like that of the original, there are obvious differences in the bust of Jenny Lind and the view of the glass house that clearly differentiate this from a genuine specimen.
