Final Bid
 

1. "WASHINGTON" / BUST OF WASHINGTON - "BALTIMORE GLASS WORKS" / BUST OF JACKSON, (GI-17), Baltimore Glass Works, Baltimore, Maryland, ca. 1825 - 1835, pale vaseline color pint, open pontil has an in-making chip to the edge, sheared and tooled lip.

Some very slight internal milky stain is near the base. Extremely bold impression, no trace of wear and not a lot of color, but definitely not aqua!

 
7 $ 220
 

2. "WASHINGTON" / BUST OF WASHINGTON - "BRIDGETON (five pointed star), NEW JERSEY", (GI-24), Bridgeton Glass Works, Bridgeton, New Jersey, ca. 1825 - 1835, aqua pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

Perfect condition, bold impression and no trace of wear.

 
6 $ 170
 

3. "WASHINGTON" / BUST OF WASHINGTON - "JACKSON" / BUST OF JACKSON, (GI-32), Coventry, Glass Works, Coventry, Connecticut, ca. 1825 - 1835, medium olive yellow pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

Fine example with a better than average impression, only very slight wear and in a very eye appealing color that lacks any trace of amber. A nicer than normally seen flask.

 
10 $ 275
 

4. "WASHINGTON" / BUST OF WASHINGTON - "JACKSON" / BUST OF JACKSON, (GI-34), Coventry, Glass Works, Coventry, Connecticut, ca. 1825 - 1835, medium olive yellow half-pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

Free of any damage, but with a very weak shoulder impression.

 
8 $ 120
 

5. "WASHINGTON" / BUST OF WASHINGTON / "JACKSON" / BUST OF JACKSON, (GI-34), Coventry Glass Works, Coventry, Connecticut, ca. 1825 - 1835, yellowish olive green half-pint, improved pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

A 1/4" in diameter chip is off the side of the lip, probably created when the lip was sheared. A large ‘drip’ of internal amber color glass is on the Washington side. Scarce green color and having one of the boldest impressions we’ve seen for this mould! This one is worthy of that extra bid!

 
5 $ 190
 

6. "THE FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY" / BUST OF WASHINGTON" - "I HAVE ENDEAVORED TO DO MY DUTY" / BUST OF TAYLOR, (GI-44), Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ca. 1849 - 1855, medium to deep cobalt blue pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

A pinhead in size flake and a 1/4" by 1/8" slightly concave chip are both off the top of the lip. Deep vivid cobalt blue color, extremely bold impression and the mentioned flaws take little away from its overall attractive appearance!

 
15 $ 2,500
 

7. BUST OF WASHINGTON - BUST OF TAYLOR, (GI-51), Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ca. 1848 - 1855, medium blue green color quart, iron pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

A 3/8" by 1/4" chip off the side of the lip has been filled in with epoxy that has become discolored. This is a nice flask with nicely textured glass and is in a scarce color. If the current fill was removed and a professional repair done the appearance and value would be enhanced considerably.

 
8 $ 210
 

8. BUST OF WASHINGTON - BUST OF TAYLOR, (GI-53), Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ca. 1849 - 1855, aqua half-pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

Some areas of high point wear and light milky internal stain, but no form of damage. A scarce mould.

 
9 $ 210
