ITEM 8610. "SUCCESS TO THE
RAILROAD" / HORSE AND CART - EAGLE, (McK# GV-8), olive green,
pint, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. Blown at the Coventry
Glass Works, Coventry, CT, 1830-1850.
This boldly embossed Coventry railroad is one of a small group
of fresh to the market flasks carefully assembled by a Salisbury,
VT gentleman in the 80s and early 90s. Each of the flasks in
the collection is bright, clean and free of wear or post-manufacture
damage. Unlike many of the GV-8 flasks we have encountered, this
example exhibits good mold clarity and superb glass clarity.
