Exceptional Black Glass Sealed Onion Bottle John Tucker 1707

A truly extra fine example of a nicely proportioned sealed onion bottle with large seal that reads John Tucker 1707. This bottle is unrecorded and not found in the reference work by David Burton although a very similar seal exists on page 536 with same elaborate scripted seal. The surname Tucker is a prominent family name in the UK and USA with prominent people like John Tucker (slave trader) and Capt William Tucker military commander and settler in Virginia who gave his surname to some of the first black africans in the country. Height 6.1 inches, width 7 inches. Seal width 2 inches. Apart from some light scratches and two small string rim chips this bottle is in wonderful condition with no cracks or star cracks. C1707
