GIV-24 KEENE, NH EAGLE - MASONIC HALF - PINT FLASK

ITEM 9977. EAGLE - MASONIC, (McK# GIV-24), clear golden olive amber, pontil scar, half pint, sheared and fire polished mouth, about perfect (slight wear at the high points and a pinhead sized stone with a 1/32" disturbance). Probably blown at the Keene Marlboro Street Glass House, Keene, NH, 1820-1840.

This handsome little flask exhibits several qualities that make it a standout example of those blown in the GIV-24 mold. First and foremost the mold detailing is exceptionally crisp and well detailed. In addition, the glass (often muddy in this mold) exhibits great clarity. Further, the piece is finished with a neck shorter and wider than most that lends the flask a particularly appealing overall form. And, perhaps most importantly, the flask actually stands well (!) a trait rarely encountered when attempting to display a GIV-24. The noted condition issues are extremely minor and do not detract one iota from this truly fine specimen.
