    Re: My Historic Flasks collection is being cataloged

    This is a Baltimore Monument Flask. This one is pint sized and is charted as the GVI-6. It is listed as scarce by the Mckearins. It was blown between 1820 and 1827 as this is when the Baltimore Battle monument was built. The other side say CORN FOR THE WORLD and a picture of a corn stalk. Corn was being exported in large amounts from The Baltimore water front docks. [attachment=P1140202 (Large).JPG] [attachment=P1140203 (Large).JPG] [attachment=P1140204 (Large).JPG]

    Re: My Historic Flasks collection is being cataloged

    Thanks Jim,thanks for checking in even though I know your heart is not in it. Like I said a class act through and through. Here are two of my more favorite flasks and one of them I feel has got to be a top 5 in the early historical flasks column. The First up is the Columbia/Eagle Union Flint Glass Company Kensington pint sized Flask. This is a unique flask as it is the only American made Historic flask using this type of mold. It almost looks like a standing fish. This flask was part of the charlie Gardner collection at one time. It was blown between 1825 and 1835 . There are 5 other variants of this flask. I believe 2 were blown at the Union Flint Glass Works in Kensington as two are marked as such one was blown at the Camden New Jersey Elixir Glass Works and one was blown in the Baltimore Flint Glass works.

    GI-121 Columbia/Eagle Pint sized Flask. The Flask has the initials B & W on the bottom .It was made at the Burgin and Wood Millville New Jersey Glass Works between 1828 and 1835. This flask is in the more classic design of most of the early 1820s to 1830s flasks. Dr George Burgin and Wood eventually sold the works in 1835 which might account for the mold change in an identical flask with out the letters B & W.
