Description

#555      728.8      BOSTON BOTTLE WORKS      OAKMAN'S PAT. JULY 26 1870.       Aqua with impurity.       Slotted pinhole.      Base embossed.

Attractive, opaque olive impurity drapes down both sides of the dome, adding desirable character.

Samuel Oakman received a patent on July 26, 1870 for a novel insulator and corresponding pin.  The insulator was formed with two opposing, tapered, recessed slots near the top of the pinhole.  A corresponding pin, which was split with a wedge in the top, locked into the cavities of the pinhole.  This method of attaching the insulator to the pin is identical to the CD 728.7, embossed Oakman items. 

Just as with the Oakman, most confirmed examples of the CD 728.8 Bostons have been found along the old “York Road” between Philadelphia and New York City.  Perhaps three times scarcer than the embossed Oakman units and quite desirable because of the prestigious “Boston Bottle Works” embossing. 

Exceptionally nice, very near mint+ condition!
