Where could I find more info on this bottle. One side I would describe as an urn not sure what the other side is depicting. I have seen this bottle in other colors but not the beautiful shade of green. IMG_6254.jpgIMG_6258.jpgIMG_6259.jpgIMG_6260.jpg

I have 3 of these and have been told they are reproductions although not from the Clevenger Bros. So I'm not sure they are pre 1900

Thanks for your reply. I know many of the bottles are reproduced. I am fairly confident mine is original given the rough pontil plus it has been in our family for 3 generations. Part of a fairly extensive collection started by my grandfather and I am age 79.

Clevenger Brothers used the original molds and pontil marks. Their bottles tend to be a little heavier than the originals and sometimes different colors, so it takes a lot of experience to tell the difference

A real 1840's bottle will often have a lot of wear on the bottom high points.

Thats good news, my three also have rough pontil scars.

I weighed my flasks - 16.5 oz, 13.4 oz, and 15.2 oz. I don't know what the original weight would be.

My flasks have little to no wear on the bottom

Agree, my historic flasks usually have little wear on the bottom where as my more utilitarian bottles have more wear. I have read that sometimes wear is faked make the reproductions look more authentic.
