    RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

    Albany Glass Works with a circular depression in the base...to simulate a pontil. I have seen the edges of these depressions chipped and roughed-up to fool the unwary...

    RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

    JOE...I like the repos....started out collecting them in order to learn how to spot them...Some still give me pause.[:o]

    These next 3....the aqua one is an Eagle/Cornucopia...machine made with a pontil...a few are listed on Ebay as vintage or old, rare, etc...I think they are very recent made...Eagle is "cartoony"....not good work at all.

    The amber is also an Eagle/Cornucopia...a little bit better made . The fake pontil on the base is similar to those on Wheaton bottles...maker unknown.

    The blue is a Masonic/Eagle/JP...probably machine made in Spain in the late 70's.

    RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

    These two are 20th Century Commemoratives...Lincoln/Log Cabin .... reportedly made by LE Smith Glass Co...in the 1960's....possibly as a Civil War 100th Anniversary flask.

    RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

    Here's two more 20th Century flasks...also made to Commemorate the Civil War 100th Anniversary....Maker unknown, but possibly LE Smith as the style, glass, and quality of artwork are similar...
    These feature Robert E Lee (obverse) & Jefferson Davis ( reverse)....

    RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

    These have Design Pat on the bottom....BIM....no other info available.
    I listed one on Ebay...no bids...

    They are reminiscent of a Stamping Grounds KY whiskey flask I saw once....but I can't locate any additional info about them.
