1840's Gi-47 Lockport Ny Pontil Washington Historical Flask Bottle Teal Awesome:
Lock and Load and take aim at this beauty of a rare example of Lockport Glass. This is the absolute finest example of this rare historial flask you'll find. It's doesn't need a thing and is ready for your Lockport window or shelf collection. The "Donut" top is flawless and very unique. The condition is fantastic, just a small scratch on the base side edge and a very small (size of a quarter) spot of interior water stain on the other base edge. (Only nit-picking for accuracy.) Virtually no highpoint wear and this has not been within a mile of a tumbler. Embossing is very crisp and again, you couldn't ask for a nicer example. This stands 8-1/2" high and is 5-1/2" across. The FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY embossing and portrait of Washington is crisp and you'd need a jeweler's loop to see the teeniest trace of highpoint wear to Washington's cheek. Pictures tell all. I've only seem one other identical example of this type and it was an ex-Blaske Collection example that sold at Heckler's last year for $750 before buyer's premium and it was scratchy and nowhere near as nice as this example. This came from a very old Philadelphia collection and I'm only selling it as I had thought, (as Helen McKearin did in the 1940's,) that is was a Dyottville made piece, which I collect. It has since been truely attributed to Lockport Glass Works. The flask is a large quart size and the pontil is like a shark's mouth and will bite if not handled carefully.This historicflaskstands straight and beautifully and gives more variety to a Lockport Collection of GW Merchant bottles. This only needs a good home; make it yours. Be sure to see all photographs before offerding; they say a lot more than I can. . Shipping might vary depending on location amd Postal "Zones."
