This attractive light aqua hand blown whiskey bottle stands approximately 9 1/4 inches and sports the patriotic figure of a Mexican War era militiaman on its face. The calabash style flask sports a classic iron pontil and is topped by an applied mouth. The calabash shaped whiskey flask saw considerable popularity in the 1840s through the Civil War era with most surviving examples emanating from the later period. This early example with the Mexican War period military figure is offered as acquired with a painted collection inventory number on the base which could be easily removed. All original and period with no chips, cracks or condition issues this colorful patriotic flask will set well in any period grouping. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
