Two images of unbelievable flasks

Another of a barrel (bitters?) in the original mold. How cool is that?

Hi bottlecrazy, This is the mold you photographed, a rare survivor.
It was used to produce Old Sachem Bitters and Wigwam Tonic bottles.

Thanks for the pictures. I see some true rarities among those flasks. Wow.

Wow! I was there years ago, but I don't think they had that display back then. I'm always glad to see when a museum chooses the best bottles they can find for their display.

For another (even more) fantastic display of flasks, check out the Corning Museum of Glass.

The next room over contains some fantastic scrafitto syle redware-possibly the finest collection in the country. Better than Winterthur, although somme super flasks can be viewed there also.
