RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

Came across one of the older and rarer Clevenger's Bottles :D Bust of George Washington "Type I" I believe but it has a gorgeous Cornflower Light Blue color... has a nice Sharp Open Pontil, Applied Blob Style drippy Lip, and Riddled with bubbles what you guys think of this beauty?

Hi, it is a reproduction but I think it was from one of the many other factories that made that stuff.

I began collecting Clevenger flasks because I live in NJ and they made a significant contribution to the appreciation of early South Jersey glass. Collectors usually won't pay much for reproductions or want them at all so they are usually priced low, often just a few dollars. A good place to start for a beginner collector. Also, an affordable introduction to fine early American glass.

RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

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.

The originnal Taylor - Wasington flask was an early one by the Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia. The Clevenger flask was a good seller.
