Collected: Three Glass Flasks

In Appreciation of Bottles

A handsome bottle for sure, styled as a flask, this brown bottle shows excellent character when illuminated. The bold form has a rough chipped lip but a great profile. All kinds of detritus dot the interior, which shows with great effect in the second photograph. I like the rounded, more slopped shoulders compared to the heavier square shoulders of the two flasks shown below.

Although these two flasks look pretty much the same, their forms are just slightly different. Each flask has a different production code on the bottom.
