Here is my newest flask added to my Texas whiskey collection. It has applied top with no air vents on the bottle and no trade mark on the bottom. It has never been in the ground and I would date it to late 1880's to early 1890's. The saloon was in business from 1883-1916. I collect Texas whiskey bottles, shot glasses or corkscrews if you have any for sale. Thanks
That is very cool! I'm in Texas as well, and we've dug privies with 50+ pumpkinseed flasks in them and as I pull out each one, I hope for embossing. No such luck though...doesn't seem like our area had any embossed pumpkinseed flasks.
This is my only Texas embossed whiskey flask. J.A. Miller From Houston. There was and may still be one on eBay. It started several months ago at over 100$ but has been relisted several times. I was watching to see what it goes for.
The only ones I have are the really common Miller from Houston, a Morris T. Gombert from Houston (which seems to be pretty hard to find though it isn't much to look at), a Sweet Revenge from Galveston, and three variations of the B.A. Cook Brookhills from Galveston.
Here is a photo of my Brookhill flasks. Two variations of the half pint and a pint. Very hard to find these and even harder to find them without damage. I have the smaller of the Sweet Revenge flasks...I've heard there is a larger one but I've never seen one.
