Aquamarine, sheared mouth – blowpipe pontil scar, Pt; (some scattered light wear and a slightly weak impression near the shoulders, otherwise near mint with no other form of damage). GI-11. Nicknamed the 'Washington vines' flask, a rare and desirable mold that does not come around often. See Mark Vuono's discussion on this, and other rare early Washington's, AB&GC, May 2013.  
5 $ 600
  “WASHINGTON” / BUST OF WASHINGTON – “JACKSON” / BUST OF JACKSON Historical Flask, Keene Marlboro Street Glassworks, Keene, NH, 1825 – 1842. Beautiful, light yellowish olive amber, almost a light golden coloration with yellow and olive tones, sheared mouth – blowpipe pontil scar, Pt; (just a slight trace of typical faint exterior wear, otherwise perfect). GI-31. A beautiful example, lighter than most, with nice clarity all the way to the base.

  “THE FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY” / BUST OF WASHINGTON – “GEN. TAYLOR NEVER SURRENDERS” / BUST OF TAYLOR Historical Flask, Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia, 1848 – 1855. Bright, bubbly, medium-to-deep blue green, sheared mouth – blowpipe pontil scar, Qt, near mint; (just a slight trace of very minor wear; embossing is a little weak in the shoulders, otherwise perfect).

2 $ 425
 WASHINGTON – TAYLOR Portrait Flask, probably Dyottville Glass Works, Philadelphia, 1848 – 1855. Brilliant, medium blue-green with a slight teal tone, sheared mouth – blowpipe pontil scar, Pt, virtually attic mint; (shallow, 3/16” minor bit of roughness on the inside edge of the mouth that likely occurred when the cork was pried out, otherwise perfect). GI-52. An excellent example, clean, sparkling, and with a good strong mold impression!

Note; the bubble in the image below Washington's bust may appear 'open'. However, it is fully intact, not open, and free of any defects. It appears a bit dark as a result of the angle of the camera.
