ITEM TG004. SUNBURST FLASK, (McK# GVIII-27), olive green, pontil scar, half-pint, sheared and fire polished mouth, mint. American, 1830-1850, rare color, ex. John Orashen Collection.

Oft attributed to Baltimore, there is some conjecture that this is in fact a New England made flask and of the examples we have handled, this crude, heavy olive green specimen would seem to best support that assertion. Deeply colored examples of this flask rarely come to market and this is a particularly good one with pleasing color, good embossing and no wear or damage.
