Ceramic figural corn flask circa 1900. These novelty flasks were used for whiskey and were manufactured between 1890 and 1910. This flask features a ceramic piece of corn with part of its husk pulled back. Some kernels of corn have presumably been eaten by bugs. It has its cork. It sits on three ceramic feet which have felt protectors.
There is an area on base that is white in color. This may have been where an original paper label was placed as pictured in my other listing of a bread flask. There are small areas of white under glaze on body of flask. The rim is smooth and it has a cork that fits tightly. These flasks are uncommon. I am listing a total of four ceramic figural flasks that belonged in the collection of an antique dealer.
Size: Approximately 7 3/4 x 2 1/2 inches
Condition: Overall excellent condition. Area of white under base. Scattered areas of white under glaze throughout body. No chips, cracks, repairs. Has its original cork.
