ITEM 10208. SUNBURST - SUNBURST, (McK# GVIII-16), bright, clear olive green, pontil scar, half-pint, sheared and tooled mouth, an undamaged example with just a whisper of wear on the tips of the sunburst rays. Blown at the Coventry Glass Works, Coventry, CT, 1815-1830.

Reflecting a popular architectural motif of the period, the sunburst design was employed in the design of numerous figured flasks, including this Coventry, CT made GVIII-16. As shown, this pleasingly transparent example features well defined corrugated ribs and a smattering of tiny bubbles in the glass that lend character. It is an excellent example of a hard to find Connecticut made flask.
