Cambridge Near Cut or Wheat Sheaf, Cambridge
Although commonly referred to as the Cambridge cologne or barber bottle, this piece is part of the Cambridge Wheat Sheaf family. It stands 8 1/2 inches tall and is found mostly in green. Without a stopper the value will be a fraction of a complete example.

As rare as the cologne bottle and whiskey decanter are, the wine decanter at left is even more rare, with just a couple known.

The Forks cracker jar is considered by some collectors to be part of this pattern.
