Medium-to-deep olive coloration, sheared mouth - blowpipe pontil scar, Pt, virtually perfect; (just an ever-so-slight trace of light wear). GI-38.

 "THE FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY" / BUST OF WASHINGTON - (Reverse plain) Historical Flask, Lockport Glass Works, 1848 - 1855. Beautiful, deep blue green with a teal tone, sheared mouth with a crudely applied large ring-type collar - heavy blowpipe pontil scar, Qt, virtually perfect; (faint trace of wear on reverse; very crude lip and collar with some in-manufacture crazing lines mentioned for complete accuracy).

In addition to the deep color, the sheared lip and crudely applied collar, the heavy deep pontil scar, and fantastic character, all add up to make this a standout example.
