scarce gxiii-3 girl on bicycle flask

 

ITEM 6886. GIRL ON BICYCLE - EAGLE / "A & DHC," (McK# GXIII-3), brilliant aquamarine, smooth base, pint, applied mouth with ring, mint. Blown at the A & DH Chambers Glass House, Pittsburgh, PA, C. 1870, scarce.

This folky flask was produced shortly after the Civil War and it's as fine an example as we've had the pleasure of offering. Obviously inspired by the advent of bicycling as a "sport" the piece offers the finest possible mold detailing and pleasing overall glass crudity.


SOLD!
