“FELLS” / BUST OF WASHINGTON / “POINT” – WASHINGTON MONUMENT/ “BALTO”
“FELLS” / BUST OF WASHINGTON / “POINT” – WASHINGTON MONUMENT / “BALTO”, (McK# GI-20), pale pink, pontil scar, pint, sheared and fire polished mouth, an attic quality flask with a band of light haze or residue at midbody. Blown at the Baltimore Glass Works, Baltimore, MD, 1830-1850, very rare color for this mold.
Though sometimes catalogued as “amethystine”, the color of this gorgeous flask would better be described as “pale pink.” Other Baltimore flasks blown in this shade include the GI-73 Taylor-Monument and the GI-71 Ringgold-Taylor. It is the GI-20, however, that is by far the hardest of the molds to find in this pretty shade of pink. This top of the line example is VERY strongly lettered, heavily whittled and free of wear or damage. It is a stunningly beautiful flask!!!
