LANCASTER, NY GV-2 LOCOMOTIVE FLASK - EXTREMELY RARE COLOR

 

ITEM 8273. "SUCCESS TO THE RAILROAD" / LOCOMOTIVE - "SUCCESS TO THE RAILROAD" / LOCOMOTIVE, (McK#GV-2), clear moss green, tubular pontil scar, pint, sheared and fire polished lip, mint. Blown at the Lancaster Glass Works, Lancaster, NY, C. 1840, extremely rare color.

This outstanding Lancaster Railroad flask is one of less than a handful of known examples in this shade of color and arguably the best of this small group. The piece exhibits stronger than usual embossing, superb glass clarity and pleasing crudity. There is NO damage and the flask is also free of wear. If you demand the "best," you have found it!
