1. BUST OF WASHINGTON - “ALBANY GLASS WORKS”, (GI-30), Albany Glass Works, Albany, New York, ca. 1830 - 1845, bluish aqua half-pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

About perfect (minor internal open bubble). Fine example with a good impression and full of white flakes of color that appear as falling snow. Rated as comparatively scarce, but possibly rarer.

 
8 $ 275
 

2. “WASHINGTON” / BUST OF WASHINGTON - “JACKSON” / BUST OF JACKSON, (GI-31), Keene Glass Works, Keene, New Hampshire, ca. 1825 - 1835, deep yellowish olive green pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

Very bold impression and only a few spot of wear, mostly on the Jackson panel.

 
14 $ 350
 

3. “WASHINGTON” / BUST OF WASHINGTON - “JACKSON” / BUST OF JACKSON, (GI-34), Coventry, Glass Works, Coventry, Connecticut, ca. 1825 - 1835, medium yellowish ‘old’ amber half-pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

4. “THE FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY” / BUST OF WASHINGTON - “DYOTTVILLE GLASS WORKS PHILAD’A / GEN. TAYLOR NEVER SURRENDERS” / BUST OF TAYLOR, (GI-38), Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ca. 1848 - 1855, medium shading to deep pinkish amethyst pint, smooth base, sheared and tooled lip.

A 3/8” by 1/4” ice pick bruise is on the inside edge of the lip, otherwise perfect. Strong impression and almost no trace of wear. Traditionally this color is dark, sometimes approaching being black. So it’s refreshing to find one that shows good color in any lighting and the mentioned flaw is not visible when viewed straight on.

 
19 $ 2,400

4 $ 275
 

8. “UNION” (in a banner) EAGLE - LYRE, (GII-22), American, probably Louisville Glass Works, ca. 1845 - 1855, bluish aqua pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

A faint 3/8” in length stress crack is located in one of the lyres scrolls, otherwise in excellent overall condition. Extremely bold impression, plenty of air bubbles and no trace of wear. An internal horizontal fold of glass is on the Lyre panel. Probably as bold an impression as any we’ve seen for this mould. Even the ‘Union’ embossing in the banner stands out! We sold this flask in auction 151, but missed the probably in making stress crack.

 
9 $ 300
 

9. EAGLE - “COFFIN & HAY.” / STANDING STAG / “HAMMONTON”, (GII-50), Coffin & Hay Glass Works, Hammonton, New Jersey, ca. 1825 - 1835, aqua half-pint, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

Some minor high point wear and like most examples of this mould the lettering is weak. This is an extremely rare color for this flask. Not only can we find no auction record of one being sold the color is unlisted in the McKearin/Wilson flask charts!

 
2 $ 1,300

The half-pint has a minor shallow open surface bubble on a medial rib, and one of the aqua pints has some light content stain, otherwise all are in perfect condition. One of the pint flasks has a heavy band of olive yellow color starting at the lip and traveling down into an upper scroll. This is a nice lot and the minor mentioned flaws are non-offensive!
