SAPPHIRE BLUE GII-24 LOUISVILLE DOUBLE EAGLE FLASK

ITEM HS105. EAGLE - EAGLE, (McK# GII-24), brilliant sapphire blue, pontil scar, pint, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. Probably blown at the Kentucky Glass Works, Louisville, KY, C. 1845, scarce color. Ex. Barry D. Hogan Collection.

Although not as dark in color as some blue Louisville flasks, this is a spectacular example with much crisper than normal embossing, even color saturation and a wonderful, slightly everted mouth.
