Rare William Bodmann Cathedral Pickle bottle sells at auction

A rare Wm Bodmann cathedral pickle bottle was recently discovered by pickers in Virginia. Auctioned by Mebane Auctions in North Carolina, the perfect condition example hammered down at $3400, not including commission. The 11.5 inch tall jar which has an open pontil base was described as free of chips cracks or damage after close inspection. However, there did appear to be overall interior stain.
