Literature: Parallels Bickerton - Eighteenth Century English Drinking Glasses, p. 215, figs. 641 and 642, decoration on p. 282, fig. 895; Jacobite symbols also discussed in Lanmon - The Golden Age of English Glass, p. 176, fig. 56. Catalogue Note: This glass is from a group assembled during the 1930s and 40s by Mrs. Warfield E. Haw, who primarily purchased from English and occasionally American dealers including mainly Arthur Churchill and Cecil Davis of London, among others. Mrs. George E. Haw (Warfield) (1887-1968) was an extremely active collector and member of the preservation community in Richmond. In addition to being a member of the Antiquarian Society and Director of the Association for Preservation of Virginia Antiquities, she was Chairman of the Furnishings Committee at Wilton House Museum from 1948 to 1965. She ushered Wilton House Museum through a period of rapid collection growth, loaning many pieces of her own as well as soliciting donations, gifts, and loans from other members, family, friends, and even strangers. Per her memorial, "[Mrs. Haw's] enthusiasm for her task was so contagious that she was able to interest members and friends, not only in giving treasures to Wilton, but also in bequeathing to it silver, furniture, rugs, and porcelain. She made people feel it was a privilege to do so."

Lot: 15 - ENGLISH FREE-BLOWN STRAIGHT STEM ALE / WINE GLASS

ENGLISH FREE-BLOWN STRAIGHT STEM ALE / WINE GLASS, colorless lead glass, the trumpet bowl atop an extraordinarily thick drawn stem with single tear, conical foot with folded rim and rough pontil mark; the bowl is finely engraved with the six-petal Jacobite rose with a single rose bud off to its left and four leaves, the rose's thorny stem adjoining a thistle with two of its own leaves and two thistle flowers, the rear with "Fiat" engraved below the rim and a long oak leaf below, and the foot is engraved with the three-feather Prince of Wales emblem reading "ICH DIEN", also known as the badge of the heir apparent. Glass circa 1740, engraving probably circa 1900-1920. 7 1/8" H, 3 3/8" D foot. Literature: Form parallels Bickerton - Eighteenth Century English Drinking Glasses, p. 139, figs. 345 and 346, decoration modeled after that seen on a glass on p. 282, fig. 894. Catalogue Note: The remarkably skilled engraving on this piece indicates it is quite possibly the work of infamous Dublin-based forger, Franz Tieze (1842-1932). An exiled Bohemian glass engraver, he produced fabulous original Irish patriotic designs, but also conspired with various identified (and unidentified) Irish and English glass dealers, and with the Pugh Brothers' flint glass factory in Dublin, to poison the market with various fakes and forgeries around the turn of the 20th century. Related pieces have long resided in museum collections around the world, with reassessment ongoing after a 1994 article appearing in The Burlington Magazine helped to expose the fraud. For a related/properly identified example, see object number 79.2.115 in the collection of the Corning Museum of Glass. This glass is from a group assembled during the 1930s and 40s by Mrs. Warfield E.

Lot: 47 - A. BININGER & SON, NEW YORK APPLIED SEAL BLACK GLASS WINE / SPIRITS BOTTLE

A. BININGER & SON, NEW YORK APPLIED SEAL BLACK GLASS WINE / SPIRITS BOTTLE, very dark olive green/black glass, tall cylindrical form blown in an unmarked three-piece mold, applied round seal at midsection embossed "A. BININGER & SON / BROAD / WAY / NEW YORK", applied tapered double collar mouth, kicked-up base with off-center disk pontil mark. It once had a rectangular paper label with chamfered corners, which has fallen off but is still present, and which reads "Sr. H. H. (illegible) / Madeira". Abraham Bininger & Son, New York, NY. Circa 1830. 11 3/4" H, 3 1/4" D base. Literature: Jim Bender - A. M. Bininger Bottles, p. 40, seal no. BPK-5; unlisted in David Burton - Antique Sealed Bottles 1640-1900 and the families who owned them. Catalogue Note: Applied seal Bininger bottles are notoriously tough to find, and are well known as the earliest Bininger bottles from the famously confusing and long-lived New York operation. In fact, most of the well-known Bininger figural bottles were marketed by Abram M. Bininger, who is believed to be a cousin of the Abraham Bininger (born in 1740, died in 1836), the merchant for which these applied seal bottles are believed to have been blown. This particular seal is listed by Bender and known on a broken bottle; at the time of publication there were no known whole examples. This particular bottle is part of a small assemblage which descended through the Pierrepont family, originally of Brooklyn, NY. Monticello acquired this group from Anne Pierrepont Luquer, great-great-great granddaughter of Hezekiah B. Pierrepont, each bottle said to have come from the famed Pierrepont family wine cellars in Brooklyn Heights, with many having related paper labels. The Pierreponts were an 18th and 19th century New York mercantile dynasty whose patriarch, Hezekiah Beers Pierrepont, is most famous for his 1790s seafaring adventures and unlucky involvement in the complicated geopolitical issue of "French spoliation". Hezekiah chartered a ship named the Confederacy, partaking in lucrative international trade without incident until 1797 when his ship and all its cargo were stolen/seized by French privateers (pirates). The Confederacy and its cargo were soon sold at public auction in Nantes. Aboard the ship was a large quantity of Madeira, at least some of which was re-purchased by Pierrepont at that auction, and re-imported to New York City. This Bininger bottle's presence in the Pierrepont assemblage with an old Madeira label is potentially noteworthy, although the contents are long gone, and any relationship between the two merchants is unknown.

Lot: 48 - JOHN AMBROSE DATED 1720 ENGRAVED ENGLISH BLACK GLASS MAGNUM ONION / UTILITY BOTTLE

JOHN AMBROSE DATED 1720 ENGRAVED ENGLISH BLACK GLASS MAGNUM ONION / UTILITY BOTTLE, medium-dark olive green/black, large magnum size, wide compressed "pancake" form with inwardly tapering neck and applied bladed ring/collar below the sheared and tooled mouth, kicked-up base with wide sand pontil mark. Diamond-point engraving to shoulder which reads "John Ambrofe / October * 27 / 1720" with the year underlined. Circa 1720. 8 3/8" H, 8" D widest point. Literature: Parallels Van den Bossche - Antique Glass Bottles, p. 72, pl. 13, fig. 1. Catalogue Note: The engraved year and date's significance are unknown, but a possible candidate for the bottle's owner is Rear Admiral John Ambrose, Esq. of London and Bath, England, who was born in 1700 and died in 1771. He served in the Royal Navy, being court martialed for allegedly demanding a bribe in 1744, but was acquitted by a jury of other captains who spoke highly of his general conduct. 

Lot: 48A - 18TH / 19TH CENTURY WINE OR SPIRITS BOTTLES FROM THE CELLAR OF HEZEKIAH BEERS PIERREPONT (AMERICAN, 1763-1838), LOT OF TWO

18TH / 19TH CENTURY WINE OR SPIRITS BOTTLES FROM THE CELLAR OF HEZEKIAH BEERS PIERREPONT (AMERICAN, 1763-1838), LOT OF TWO, olive-green or black glass, cylindrical forms, blown in a three-piece mold with medium length necks, applied double-collar mouths, disk pontil marked bases. One empty, the other filled at high- to mid-shoulder level with reddish-brown liquid, seemingly well-sealed with cork and red wax. The empty bottle is embossed "PATENT" at shoulder and "RICKETTS & Co. GLASSWORKS BRISTOL" to underside of base. Two pieces total. First or second quarter 19th century. 10 3/4" H. Literature: Abbot Low Moffat - The Pierreponts, 1802-1962; the American forebears and the descendants of Hezekiah Beers Pierpont and Anna Maria Constable. Catalogue Note: This full bottle (and the accompanying empty bottle) are part of a small assemblage which descended through the Pierrepont family, originally of Brooklyn, NY. Monticello acquired this group from Anne Pierrepont Luquer, great-great-great granddaughter of Hezekiah B. Pierrepont, each bottle said to have come from the famed Pierrepont family wine cellars in Brooklyn Heights, with many having related paper labels. The Pierreponts were an 18th and 19th century New York mercantile dynasty whose patriarch, Hezekiah Beers Pierrepont, is most famous for his 1790s seafaring adventures and unlucky involvement in the complicated geopolitical issue of "French spoliation". Hezekiah chartered a ship named the Confederacy, partaking in lucrative international trade without incident until 1797 when his ship and all its cargo were stolen/seized by French privateers (pirates). The Confederacy and its cargo were soon sold at public auction in Nantes. Aboard the ship was a large quantity of Madeira, at least some of which was re-purchased by Pierrepont at that auction, and re-imported to New York City. The empty bottle in this lot has a typewritten label - still present but having fallen off - indicating its contents had been H.B.P.'s "French Spoliation Madeira" or "Black Seal Madeira", as it has come to be known. The full bottle has a very old label reading "CONSTITUTION" in script, the meaning of which is unknown. The contents are unknown as well. A possible connection is that in 1797 the ship U.S.S. Constitution was launched. Its entry into the harbor was widely celebrated in the press. Numerous accounts indicate it was christened by having a "choice bottle of old Madeira" broken across its bow. One might speculate that the sealed bottle could contain a Madeira named to celebrate the launch of this famous ship, which is now a museum. However, until the bottle is opened, no one can say for certain.

Lot: 49 - 18TH / 19TH CENTURY WINE OR SPIRITS BOTTLES FROM THE CELLAR OF HEZEKIAH BEERS PIERREPONT (AMERICAN, 1763-1838), LOT OF TWO

18TH / 19TH CENTURY WINE OR SPIRITS BOTTLES FROM THE CELLAR OF HEZEKIAH BEERS PIERREPONT (AMERICAN, 1763-1838), LOT OF TWO, olive-green or black glass, free-blown cylindrical forms, round laid-on collars below the plain mouths, pontil marked bases. One empty, the other full of reddish-brown liquid below mid-shoulder, seemingly well-sealed with cork and red wax. The empty bottle carries an old 20th century paper label and both have fragments of earlier labels. Two pieces total. Bottles first or second quarter 19th century. 11 3/4" H. Literature: Abbot Low Moffat - The Pierreponts, 1802-1962; the American forebears and the descendants of Hezekiah Beers Pierpont and Anna Maria Constable. Catalogue Note: These bottles are part of a small assemblage which descended through the Pierrepont family, originally of Brooklyn, NY.

Aboard the ship was a large quantity of Madeira, at least some of which was re-purchased by Pierrepont at that auction, and re-imported to New York City. The empty bottle in this lot has a handwritten label indicating its contents had been H.B.P.'s "French Spoliation Madeira" or "Black Seal Madeira", as it has come to be known. This label appears to be from the early 20th century and likely reiterates what was written on an earlier label, fragments of which still remain on the bottle. Fragments of an identical label are also on the full bottle here, which also has an area where it appears to have once had one of the same 20th century labels as the empty one. It seems reasonable to assume that the sealed bottle could contain the very same historic Madeira indicated on the empty bottle. However, until the bottle is opened, no one can say for certain.

Lot: 50 - 18TH / 19TH CENTURY WINE OR SPIRITS BOTTLES FROM THE CELLAR OF HEZEKIAH BEERS PIERREPONT (AMERICAN, 1763-1838), LOT OF THREE

18TH / 19TH CENTURY WINE OR SPIRITS BOTTLES FROM THE CELLAR OF HEZEKIAH BEERS PIERREPONT (AMERICAN, 1763-1838), LOT OF THREE, olive-green or medium green glass, cylindrical forms, double collared mouths, two bottles machine made and one blown in a three-piece mold. Each full of tawny brown or reddish-brown liquid at either mid- or high-shoulder level, seemingly well-sealed with cork and brown or red wax. Two bottles carry old 20th century paper labels and the other is instead painted. Three pieces total. Bottles first and second quarter 20th century. 12 1/4" H. Literature: Abbot Low Moffat - The Pierreponts, 1802-1962; the American forebears and the descendants of Hezekiah Beers Pierpont and Anna Maria Constable. Catalogue Note: These bottles are part of a small assemblage which descended through the Pierrepont family, originally of Brooklyn, NY. Monticello acquired this group from Anne Pierrepont Luquer, great-great-great granddaughter of Hezekiah B.

The Confederacy and its cargo were soon sold at public auction in Nantes. Aboard the ship was a large quantity of Madeira, at least some of which was re-purchased by Pierrepont at that auction, and re-imported to New York City. The older (hand blown) bottle is painted with "Mariett / Brandy / 1804". We could find no information about it, although it must have been bottled much later on, since the bottle itself cannot date much prior to 1900. The other two bottles are a similar story, both are machine made and date to likely the 1930s or 40s, both have typewritten labels reading "DEMIJOHN MADEIRA - B '40" with "MADEIRA" crossed out and different contents penciled in. The labels suggest that these two bottles were filled from a larger demijohn stored in the cellar, in 1940. One bottle seems to be "Brown Sherry" and also has "H.B.P. 1829" penciled below. The other one is tough to discern but seems to be "Rivadet(?) Brandy". It seems reasonable to assume that this lot contains two bottles of brandy and one of sherry. However, until the bottles are opened, no one can say for certain.

Lot: 51 - 18TH / 19TH CENTURY WINE OR SPIRITS BOTTLES FROM THE CELLAR OF HEZEKIAH BEERS PIERREPONT (AMERICAN, 1763-1838), LOT OF FOUR

18TH / 19TH CENTURY WINE OR SPIRITS BOTTLES FROM THE CELLAR OF HEZEKIAH BEERS PIERREPONT (AMERICAN, 1763-1838), LOT OF FOUR, dark olive-green or amber glass, cylindrical forms, applied double-collared mouths, each blown in three-piece or turn molds, two of the four bottles with pontil marks. One bottle empty, the other three full of tawny brown or reddish liquid at either the high-shoulder level or base of the neck, seemingly well-sealed with cork and red wax. Four pieces total. Bottles second and third quarter 19th century. 11 1/2" H. Literature: Abbot Low Moffat - The Pierreponts, 1802-1962; the American forebears and the descendants of Hezekiah Beers Pierpont and Anna Maria Constable. Catalogue Note: These bottles are part of a small assemblage which descended through the Pierrepont family, originally of Brooklyn, NY. Monticello acquired this group from Anne Pierrepont Luquer, great-great-great granddaughter of Hezekiah B.

Aboard the ship was a large quantity of Madeira, at least some of which was re-purchased by Pierrepont at that auction, and re-imported to New York City. The empty bottle has a 20th century typewritten "MADEIRA 1807" label and an earlier handwritten label "Madeira 1807 / Imported by HBP / ___?____ (illegible) by / C. E. Dudley / Bottled 1860". HBP's initials are self explanatory, and Dudley is probably Charles E. Dudley, a New York merchant and politician, twice Mayor of Albany, and United States Senator from New York from 1829 to 1833. His relationship to the Pierreponts and to the bottle is unknown, but both he and HBP had passed away by 1860 when their descendants apparently bottled their Madeira. The other three bottles in this lot, each full, do not have any legible labels or indication of what their contents might be. Until the bottles are opened, no one can say for certain.

Lot: 52 - OVERSIZED FREE-BLOWN NEW ENGLAND CHESTNUT FLASK / UTILITY BOTTLE

OVERSIZED FREE-BLOWN NEW ENGLAND CHESTNUT FLASK / UTILITY BOTTLE, medium olive green, tall globular body with a smooth taper upwards to the neck, with somewhat flattened sides tapering back inwards to the base, outwardly rolled/tooled and flattened mouth, blowpipe pontil mark to base. Probably New England. Late 18th/early 19th century. 10 7/8" H, 6 3/4" across widest point. Catalogue Note: A very well-proportioned chestnut flask, which Bennington's accession information describes as "about 2 qt. size". Significantly larger than most comparable chestnuts.

Lot: 53 - NEW ENGLAND GLASS BOTTLE CO. (CAMBRIDGE, MA) EMBOSSED WHISKEY CYLINDER

NEW ENGLAND GLASS BOTTLE CO. (CAMBRIDGE, MA) EMBOSSED WHISKEY CYLINDER, yellowish olive-green, blown in a three-piece Ricketts-style mold, cylinder form with a misshapen neck having an applied tapered collar with reinforcing ring, and indented base with wide and jagged disk pontil mark, faintly embossed around base edge "NEW ENG. GLASS BOTTLE Co." New England Glass Bottle Company, Cambridge, Massachusetts. 1827-1845. 10" H, 3 1/4" D. Literature: Wilson - New England Glass & Glassmaking, p. 190; McKearin/Wilson - American Bottles & Flasks and Their Ancestry, p. 188, pl. 45, no. 8 with discussion on pp. 230 and 232; Barlow/Kaiser - The Glass Industry in Sandwich, Vol. 1, p. 26, note #23. Catalogue Note: This is a very early and rare New England bottle, quite similar to an example we sold in our 12/01/2023 sale as lot 1111. As quoted in Barlow/Kaiser, the NEGBCo. was incorporated in 1826 "for the purpose of manufacturing black and green glass wares in the city of Boston and the town of Cambridge". The bottle's provenance is noteworthy, having been purchased by Monticello in 1967 in Massachusetts, where it was unnoticed amongst a group of 34 similarly dusty bottles each dating around the 1820s-1830s range, likely a cellar cleanout. The vast majority of the bottles in the group seem to be of English or Dutch manufacture, many of them embossed with Ricketts' Glassworks information under the base and "PATENT" at the shoulder. Additionally there are a few unmarked iron pontil whiskeys from this group - almost certainly American - selling as lot 62. Still, this NEGBCo. cylinder is the only embossed American bottle from the group, potentially giving an informal estimate of its rarity compared to the cheaply available imported black glass "junk" bottles it aimed to compete against.

Lot: 54 - ENGLISH FREE-BLOWN BLACK GLASS ONION / UTILITY BOTTLE

ENGLISH FREE-BLOWN BLACK GLASS ONION / UTILITY BOTTLE, very dark olive green/black but with pale blue gall surface visible in indirect light, full size, wide compressed "pancake" form with inwardly tapering short neck and crude applied bladed ring/collar below the straight mouth, very heavily kicked-up base with wide disk pontil mark having a cross-shaped indentation at center, showing the use of a molette. 1705-1720. 6" H, 6 1/8" D widest point. Literature: Parallels Van den Bossche - Antique Glass Bottles, p. 73, pl. 13, fig. 1.

Lot: 54A - DIMINUTIVE ENGLISH CRUCIFORM DECANTER / FLAT OCTAGONAL UTILITY BOTTLE

DIMINUTIVE ENGLISH CRUCIFORM DECANTER / FLAT OCTAGONAL UTILITY BOTTLE, colorless heavy flint glass with very high lead content, short octagonal dip-molded body with concave sides, very long thin neck with applied bladed collar or string rim below the plain mouth, rough unfinished pontil mark to underside. English. Circa 1740. 8" HOA, 2 3/4" x 2 1/8" base across widest points. Literature: Parallels McConnell - The Decanter: An Illustrated History of Glass from 1650, p. 68, pl. 93, second from left, and Van den Bossche - Antique Glass Bottles, p. 355, pl. 294, fig. 1. Catalogue Note: This remarkably stout and stocky decanter/utility bottle seems to hold barely half a pint. A very rare and early English form, the smallest we have ever sold by a large margin, and smaller than any of the examples pictured in either edition of McConnell's The Decanter.

Lot: 55 - ENGLISH FREE-BLOWN BLACK GLASS FLOWERPOT ONION / UTILITY BOTTLE

ENGLISH FREE-BLOWN BLACK GLASS FLOWERPOT ONION / UTILITY BOTTLE, very dark olive green/black, full size, transitional form with generally hemispherical body and medium length neck with very thick applied inverted funnel or "V" sectional collar below the straight mouth, kicked-up base with sand pontil mark. Mid 18th century. 7" H, 5 1/2" D widest point. Literature: Form echoes the bottle shown in Van den Bossche - Antique Glass Bottles, p. 91, pl. 39, fig. 4 with the distinct lip treatment shown on p. 72, pl. 11. Catalogue Note: An overwhelming combination of very classic English onion traits are offset by a few slightly unusual differences in the glass color, extreme thickness, lip treatment, and form - research into these glasshouses is still in its infancy but there exists an interesting possibility that this bottle was blown at an early Colonial American glass factory.

Lot: 56 - ENGLISH FREE-BLOWN BLACK GLASS ONION / UTILITY BOTTLE

ASSORTED BOTTLES FROM THE CELLAR OF HEZEKIAH BEERS PIERREPONT (AMERICAN, 1763-1838), LOT OF FIVE, various colors, tall cylindrical forms, one machine-made and the remainder blown in three-piece molds with shoulder seams visible, double collar mouths, indented bases one of which is embossed "DYOTTVILLE GLASS WORKS / PHILA" around the edge, one other with tattered remnants of a New York "Wine Merchants" label and another with label fragments and sludgy partial contents. Various makers. Mostly mid to late 19th century except "1937 PORT" bottle is later. 11 3/4" H tallest, 3 1/4" D bases. Catalogue Note: These bottles are part of a small assemblage which descended through the Pierrepont family, originally of Brooklyn, NY. Monticello acquired this group from Anne Pierrepont Luquer, great-great-great granddaughter of Hezekiah B. Pierrepont, each bottle said to have come from the famed Pierrepont family wine cellars in Brooklyn Heights, with many having related paper labels. The Pierreponts were an 18th and 19th century New York mercantile dynasty whose patriarch, Hezekiah Beers Pierrepont, is most famous for his 1790s seafaring adventures and unlucky involvement in the complicated geopolitical issue of "French spoliation". Hezekiah chartered a ship named the Confederacy, partaking in lucrative international trade without incident until 1797 when his ship and all its cargo were stolen/seized by French privateers (pirates). The Confederacy and its cargo were soon sold at public auction in Nantes. Aboard the ship was a large quantity of Madeira, at least some of which was re-purchased by Pierrepont at that auction, and re-imported to New York City.

While the cover is a perfect fit for the base, the fact that they react differently when examined under both short- and long-wave blacklight, their colors are slightly different, and the cover is not molded to match the base suggests that the two are an old marriage.

Literature: Bourne - The Elsholz Collection of Early American Glass, Sessions I & II, pp. 100, 101, fig. 398 (this being the actual example). Spillman - American and European Pressed Glass in The Corning Museum of Glass, p. 60, fig. 136. The McKearins - American Glass, pl. 147, fig. 4 (CMOG example). Lee - Sandwich Glass, p. 411, pl.159 (CMOG example). Allentown Art Museum - Treasures in Glass, p. 69, fig. 142 (on loan from CMOG). Catalogue Note: The present creamer is an iconic and elusive example of American lacy glass. It is one of only two recorded specimens and among a very small number of pieces of early pressed lacy glass marked for the manufacturer. The other example, as referenced above, is housed at the Corning Museum of Glass, acquired from James H. Rose.  When Lee initially published the marked Curling creamer in 1939, most collectors were aghast that anyone other than Sandwich was producing larger pieces of pressed lacy glass. Because it employed designs also seen on Sandwich creamers, many scoffed that it had to be a special order made at Sandwich for Curling. The controversy was such that Lee included a new chapter titled "Pittsburgh vs. Sandwich" in her 1966 Revised and Enlarged edition of Sandwich Glass. She closed the chapter with "R. B. Curling & Sons could well be proud of their marked creamer, which is quite as beautiful as any Sandwich turned out, to say nothing of the added value in interest and historical significance, in the marked base carrying their name. All that glitters in lacy glassware is not Sandwich."

Auction Sale, 1953. Together with a set (unknown completeness) of Marbles' cup plate collection photographs, and assorted archival material, including four James Rose cup plate sales lists. Hard and soft covers. Catalogue Note: This copy of AGCP was the personal copy of the Parkes, and was inscribed to them by Rose. As best we can surmise, they collected during the early 1960s, from antique shops and shows in the New England area, and also ordered through the mail directly from Rose and other dealers. They heavily annotated the book throughout, with notes about auctions they attended in 1960-1961, sale prices, etc., many items written in code, with a guide in the back. It seems they assembled a respectable collection of around 50 good plates, the entirety of which was purchased by Hardesty in 2019, and which is now offered throughout this auction as part of the Hardesty collection. Plates from the Parkes' assemblage will be noted as "ex-Parkes collection" in their provenance, where known. Their AGCP copy offers a unique source of insight into the glory days of cup plate collecting, which may be of great interest to cup plate collecting archivists.
