Large sized. Purple hued with very defined color striations (sp?) on the bottom...looks almost phsycodelic...

I read that these have gained in popularity lately...there are dozens around here in shops...dozens...

Which ones are the hot ones?

Thanks everyone.

I think youre talking about the wheaton presidential flasks made from 1967 to 1974 for the Nuline Products Co. I almost bought one once for $1 at an antique store...I dont think theyre worth much yet but they make good decorative bottles.

I think in general $5 is about what any of them are worth unless it's a 1930's Clevenger with a pontil. Most of the Lestoil, Ezra Brooks, Empire etc don't have much of a following except to the novice or interior decorator or a specialist in repro's if there is such a thing.
