RARE GIV-14 HALF-PINT MASONIC FLASK

 

ITEM 7752. EAGLE - MASONIC, (McK# GIV-14), clear light green, pontil scar, half-pint, tooled mouth, a mint flask exhibiting some exterior wear. New England, probably blown at the Keene Marlboro Street Glass Works, Keene, NH, C. 1825, rare.

Probably blown at Keene but perhaps blown in South Boston this truly hard-to-find Masonic flask is one of the more elusive molds in McKearin's Group Four (GIV). This attractive example does exhibit some wear at the high points but the embossing is particularly strong and the tooled, banded mouth is especially attractive.


SOLD!
