long necked gviii-2 "two pounder" sunburst flask

ITEM 9083. SUNBURST FLASK (McK# GVIII-2), clear, light green, pontil scar, pint, sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint flask exhibiting just a whisper of wear at the high points. Blown at a New England or New York State Glass House, 1815-1830.

This exceptional "two-pounder" is a superlative example of the GVIII-2 mold. Flasks of this type were blown both in Keene, NH and Mount Vernon, NY (perhaps in South Boston, MA as well) and they are among America's earliest figured flasks. It is this example's extraordinarily bold impression, elongated neck and almost complete absence of high point wear that make it a candidate for the top shelf.
