I have had my sights set on a McKenna & Conaly Cypress St. Providence, RI aqua blob for a while now. As luck had it, one came up on ebay, and I was the only bidder! The interesting part to this blob is that Conaty is misspelled Conaly. Whoops!
Well, it's that time again! My second visit to Brimfield was a successful one! Among a slew of RI bottles were two unlisted examples. My favorite was this Otis Clapp & Son Incorporated 8” amber example. This is a bit larger than your normal “Clapp Incorporated” bottle, and has a commanding presence!
Another impressive bottle was a L.H. Meyer Company Providence quart blob. This hard to find size was unlisted in clear.
Ah yes, yet another Otis Clapp & Son has been found! This small amber square is almost identical to one I bought a month back. However, is is a darker amber, and does not have the M.B.W. trademark on the bottom. Maybe I'm being over-observant, but I think it deserves mention!
One of the newest RI bottles listed on the website is a Saltesea Oysters Providence, RI oyster bucket. This “glass bucket” has a metal handle and heavily lettered screw top. It is only listed in an 8oz. size, but this one is 15oz!
