Ceramic figural bread flask, 1902. These novelty flasks were used for whiskey and were manufactured between 1890 and 1910. This flask has a paper label on the bottom which reads 'Compliments of The Louvre, Christmas, 1902 Seattle Wash.'

The bread flask has four ceramic feet. Remnants of silver over-paint remain on neck of flask. The original cork is present. The lip is smooth under the cork. The cork fits tightly. The bread is brightly colored with a shiny glaze. There are areas of white, a black spot and some firing specks all present when manufactured. The label provides interesting information about this flask as it was a promotional gift given we presume at a restaurant.

These figural ceramic flasks are uncommon. I am listing four such flasks that belonged in the collection of an antique dealer. These flasks were made as promotional gifts and were used as such. Not many survived.

Date: Christmas 1902

Marks: Paper label on bottom. 'Compliments of the Louvre, Christmas, 1902, Seattle, Wash.'

Size: Approximately 7 inches long 2 1/2 inches wide

Condition: Overall excellent condition. No chips, cracks or repairs. Original cork. Areas of white under glaze, a black spot under glaze and kiln flecks consistent with manufacture.
