Circa : 1842-1873.

Item Dimensions: 5 7/8" HOA, 6 3/8" D rim, 3 1/2" D foot.

Provenance : Recently discovered at a tag sale of the Rickenbacker estate, Columbus, Ohio.
Ex-collection of George S. McKearin.

Attribution : One of five glasshouses in Stoddard, New Hampshire.

Catalog Note : Published: The McKearins - American Glass, pl. 72, fig. 7, text p. 216.
Catalogue Note: The text for this bowl referenced above states that "It is one of three found in a private home near Stoddard about 12 years ago [1929]. All three were filled with earth and were being used as plant jars." The height and foot diameter of the present bowl match those listed by McKearin in the text, while the rim diameter is off by a 1/4". Despite this small discrepancy, there are tiny reflecting scratches visible in the McKearin photo that match up exactly with the present bowl leaving no doubt it is the actual example published. It is also possible that this bowl was exhibited at the famous 1929 Girl Scout Loan Exhibition of the McKearin collection, listed under the "Stoddard Factories" category, #243, "Dark amber bowl with heavy, folded rim, resting on flaring, circular foot."
A second example of the three McKearin notes resides in the Corning Museum of Glass collection, accession #50.4.475, ex-collection of Herbert Delevan Mason, acquired from George S. McKearin.
