ITEM 5726. "A.M. BININGER
& CO. / NO. 375 BROADWAY, N.Y.," brilliant strawberry
pink, square with beveled edges, early smooth base, 9 ¾"H,
applied sloping collar, mint. American, 1865-1875, rare color.
Among the most elusive and desirable of the Bininger bottles
are those with the 375 Broadway address blown in shades of puce.
We have seen a handful of these bottles over the years and surmised
that they were blown in Baltimore, as the peculiar shade of color
is a close match to known Baltimore flasks. Primarily red with
strong pink tones, the Bininger case bottles we have seen in
this general color range have been as a rule quite dark but as
the photos show, this spectacular example passes light easily
from top to bottom, making it an outstanding window bottle and
one of our most exciting finds this year.
