OUTSTANDING GIV-24 KEENE HALF-PINT MASONIC FLASK

 

 

 

ITEM 7753. EAGLE - MASONIC, (McK# GIV-24), clear olive green, tubular pontil scar, half-pint, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. Blown at the Keene Marlboro Street Glass Works, Keene, NH, 1830-1850.

Although the GIV-24 is not a rare flask most of the known examples are either weakly embossed, muddy in color, damaged, heavily worn (as a result of the small base) or some combination thereof. It is a pleasure than, to offer one of the relatively few "top shelf" examples of this flask that we have encountered over the years. Although quite thick and heavy, this fine bottle exhibits superb mold detailing, pleasing glass clarity and ample character with loads of tiny bubbles and a delightfully crude mouth. In addition, there is little or no wear at the high points and no damage whatsoever. This is a truly special example of its type!
