1. BUST OF WASHINGTON - “BALTIMORE X GLASS. WORKS” / CLASSICAL BUST, (GI-23), Baltimore Glass Works, Baltimore, Maryland, ca. 1825 - 1835, medium smoky topaz quart, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

A tiny chip is off the tip of a medial rib. A spot of roughness is on the tip of a medial rib at the base. Bright, clean glass, exceptional impression. A rare mould in an extremely rare and unlisted color! We auctioned this flask in 2002 and are honored to have the privilege of offering it again!

 
3 $ 8,000
 

2. “BRIDGETON NEW JERSEY” / BUST OF WASHINGTON - “BRIDGETON NEW JERSEY” / CLASSICAL BUST, (GI-25), Bridgeton Glass Works, Bridgeton, New Jersey, ca. 1825 - 1835, greenish aqua quart, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

Nice example, good impression and no wear.

 
7 $ 210
 

3. “THE FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY” / BUST OF WASHINGTON - “DYOTTVILLE GLASS WORKS PHILAD.A / GEN. TAYLOR NEVER SURRENDERS” / BUST OF TAYLOR, (GI-37), Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ca. 1848 - 1855, medium peach with a hint of puce color quart, smooth base, applied double collar mouth.

Some minor high point wear is on the Washington side, also some light spotty interior stain. Rare and exciting color that shades from a deeper central area to a lighter density of color in both sides. This one is worthy of a strong bid!

 
3 $ 1,700
 

4. “THE FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY” / BUST OF WASHINGTON - “A LITTLE MORE GRAPE CAPTAIN BRAGG” / BUST OF TAYLOR, (GI-42), Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ca. 1848 - 1855, light green quart, open pontil, applied double collar mouth.

9 $ 240
 

5. “THE FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY” / BUST OF WASHINGTON - “I HAVE ENDEAVORED TO DO MY DUTY” / BUST OF TAYLOR, (GI-43), Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ca. 1848 - 1855, medium yellowish lime green quart, open pontil, sheared and tooled lip.

During the lip finish process an extra flange of glass occurred on part of the outer edge of the lip. This was partially chipped away at the glass house. A flat 3/16” chip is off the side of the lip. This is a rare color for this mould and the minor lip issues take nothing away from its overall appearance.

 
10 $ 1,400

A tiny sand grain at the center of the starburst has a tiny 1/8” long cooling radiation traveling across it. A highly desirable flask and the tiny flaw is non-offensive to the eye! The GII-7, 8 and 9 flask trilogy is among the most sought after of all the eagle historical flasks!
