This listing is for a rare early amethyst cornucopia urn blown glass 6 3/4 pint flask.
I've looked around and have been unable to find another example like it! I believe this to be a genuine original antique blown glass flask due to it's typical form and crude flaws like striations & bubbles inherent in early blown glass flasks but can't be positive so do not guarantee it's authenticity. I'll let you, the expert, be the judge. Feel free to ask any questions! This wonderful example stands 6 3/4" tall with a large oval 2 5/8" x 1 3/4 base that shows little if any wear.At one side is the Cornucopia with an Urn overflowing with produce at the other. This early pint flask was most likely blown in a two-part mold. Then the apprentice would hold the flask steady by a pontil rod attached to the base while the glass master formed the lip. Then the pontil rod would be sheared off, leaving the rough open pontil at the base that you see in the photographs! This is a stellar collector's piece for the antique glass collector. I'm sure you'll be as proud to display it as I have been.. The glass has a clear clean medium light amethyst color that passes light evenly. No haze or cloudiness noticed.
Chock full of crudity, character and history. The neck as well as parts of the body shows crude stretch marks/striations in the glass with the plentiful tiny bubbles throughout the piece. This antique amethyst cornucopia urn pictorial blown glass pint flask has everything a collector could want in my inexperienced opinion.
