Description

This is a small honeycomb-moulded clear glass schnapps or spirit flask dating from the end of the 18th century, c1780.

The flask is in excellent condition for its age. This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear consistent with some 200+ years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the bottom of the base.

The flask is of flattened ovoid form in the clear colourway and measures 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter at its widest point. The bowl is honeycomb moulded up to just under the neck. The flask is 13.8 cm (5.5 inches) in length and weighs 155 g. (~ 5 1/2 oz.). There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration. There is a collector's sticker on the bottom of the flask.
