ITEM 10212 EAGLE / "KCCNC"
- MASONIC, (McK# GIV-19), bright golden amber, pontil scar, pint,
sheared and tooled mouth, mint. Blown at the Keene Marlboro Street
Glass House, Keene, NH, 1820-1840.
With its far lighter than normal
coloring and exceedingly bold mold impression, this top of the
line Keene Masonic flask is a collector's dream. The distinctive
"pinch" of glass to the right of the embossed oval
is an intriguing result of the manufacturing process that lends
the piece singularity.
