    Question Old Flasks - Identification

    Have some old flasks (Stoddard,cornucopia,calabash, etc).
    Few questions...
    1. Are these considered authentic?
    2. Ballpark idea of rarity/price range?
    3. Can these be identified to any specific maker/mold?

    Any help is appreciated.

    All of the ones you posted photos of are authentic and vary in value from $70 or so for the majority of the ones you listed, maybe $120 for the Cornucopia, and maybe $200 or so for the double eagle. None of these are rare but generally they are fairly desirable.

    Thanks for the info! I noticed the half ring around the pontil on the union flask and wasn't sure if authentic or not. Do you know if these have specific age ranges between them?

    The two colored flasks are from the 1840's-1850's. The calabash is from the 1860's and the Union flask is Civil War era or late 1860's.
