Purchased this Flask at a recent bottle show in Adelaide, South Australia and was wondering if anyone could give me info on the age rarity and possible value. I paid around U S $ 35.00 for it. Thanks David

Cornucopia-Urn. Probably the most common of the "colored" historical flasks but still worth $100 USD or so-sometimes a touch more. Great find!

There are a bunch of cornucopia/urn molds. Not many are rare, but you still got a really good deal assuming it's undamaged. Solid $100 flask. And any bottle from the 1830s-1850s that is pattern molded in some way is a great bottle.

Were these all blown at Keene?

I've seen attributions all over the place but the ones you generally see were probably blown at Coventry.

This was apparently a very popular style flask. Barring one of the rarer form molds or a color that limits attribution, I think the best you can say is a New England or NE glasshouse.
