ITEM 8280. CORSET WAISTED SCROLL
FLASK, (McK#GIX-45), deep aquamarine, pontil scar, pint, crudely
sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint flask that is slightly
overblown in the shoulder area. Probably blown at a Pittsburgh
District Glass House, C. 1840, scarce.
This beautifully designed and highly ornate scroll flask is one
of the most attractive molds in McKearin's group number nine.
The flask is a fine example that exhibits brilliant glass and
little if any wear at the high points.
