Monumental “Grandfather” flask… Midwestern Pattern Molded Icon!

ON HOLD – Here is truly an iconic piece of Early American (midwestern) Glass. This is largest “grandfather” flask I have seen, produced at the Zanesville OH factory, 1830s. This pattern-molded beauty has 24 vertical ribs, and is a bright amber color. This one stands right around 8 1/4″ tall. After chatting with a few Midwestern collectors, it seems that this as large as they get, but I could be wrong. It certainly has a strong presence on a shelf, and is a beautiful color! This one is in fine condition. There is some minor wear, and a couple of very tiny lip edge fleabites that you can feel. Here is a great Midwestern icon!
