This is an American small art glass flask or bottle from the New England region of glassmakers. The date is circa 1850.

The flask is 4 1/2” high and 3” wide.

The glass is clear crystal and dipped in various other glasses, resulting in an outer layer that has streaks of green, white and a metallic color, yet the clear crystal still shows through in spots. This is a very unusual piece of glass.

The bottom is ground flat, meaning the flask can actually stand upright.

The rim is clear of nicks and chips. When looking down at the clear glass of the mouth, light refracting off of the colors of the outside may look like cracks in the glass. No, there are no cracks; it is just the way the glass is made, and if you feel the mouth carefully with your finger tips you will feel only smoothness, no roughness due to flaws.

The mouth is polished flat.

The inside of the flask is small, therefore it wasn’t designed to carry much, perhaps a medicinal powder versus a liquid, or smelling salts.

Please enjoy looking at the photos and if you are a collector of old American glass, you will appreciate how unique this piece is.
