ITEM 7349. PATTERN MOLDED FLASK,
brilliant purple amethyst, diamond daisy design, pontil scar,
5"H, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. Blown at Stiegel's
American Flint Glass Manufactory, 1769-1774, rare.
Unquestionably a product of Stiegel's 18th century Glass Manufactory,
this spectacular flask is not only astoundingly beautiful but
also a pre-Revolutionary War artifact of historic significance.
The flask rises above others of its type by its relatively bold
impression, particularly vibrant color and appealingly plump
form. That it is also a perfect specimen truly makes this a Diamond
daisy of peculiar merit.
