Here's some Washington-Albany Glass works/Sailing Ship flasks. All Blown In Mold.
They have smooth bases....Others I have , have a circular depression in the center. (pix in a later post, as I has hoped to get 2 pix in this one).[&:]
These could be mistaken for the real thing...except the milk white one with the odd mouth.

RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

Scroll Flasks...BIM...the upside down one was made In Italy...others are Clevenger.
Again, with the exception of the ruffled mouth on one scroll, these could pass for originals.

Washington-Taylor flasks...

Amber & amethyst are Clevenger...the other is very similar but much more delicate/fragile glass...Could be Clevenger, but not sure.

Either could fool the uninitiated.

RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

Here's a group of Scroll flasks. They are made by Clevenger...all have the Clevenger Bros slug scene/logo on the reverse.

Three are 1776-1976 20th Century Commemoratives...
Battle Of Cowpens (lt.blue), Victory At Yorktown (clear), First Blood At Lexington (green).

The sapphire blue & amethyst are North Carolina 20th Century Commemoratives, part of a set of 6.

RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

Three of these scrolls all Commemorate the Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors...and one has a tag for Downer Glass Works of New Jersey...

The amber one is the North Jersey Bottle Club bottle made by Clevenger Bros.

RE: CLEVENGER BROS. & OTHERS

This is a very good repo of the Concentric Ring/Eagle Canteen flask...made in Italy.
It has the offset seams of the early Ownes machine, but to the beginner, it would appear to be authentic.

RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

Owned an Albany myself. It had a glob of glass on the bottom that made it appear pontil. Amber 1/2 pint with a short leaning sheared top. Sold it on ebay for more than it should have gone for. Some guys love them as you can tell from above. Joe B
