Scroll Flask, Early American Glass

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on March 16, 2016

Aquamarine mold-blown half pint size scroll flask with a fleur-de-lis and stellar motif probably made in the Midwest. This beautiful example is similar to a flask on display at The Corning Museum of Glass accession #60.4.429 (pictured next to our flask below). The difference is that on the reverse side of the Corning flask, the scroll frame contains the letters of the manufacturer “BP & B”, Bakewell Page & Bakewells instead of the fleur-de-lis ornament.  Additional information on this type of scroll flasks can be found on Ian Simmonds, Early American Glass blog.
