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.

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.

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.
