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,
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.
