Eagle embossed flasks for Independence Day

The boys and girls are really letting the eagles fly over on Early American Glass on facebook. Look at these GREAT pictures. I will continue to add pictures throughout the day as I suspect more will leave their perches. Have a nice 4th of July everyone. Be cool.

Here’s my eagle flask to contribute. I bought this flask at Norms first sale. I had other double eagles but when I saw this one I knew it was time to upgrade. This flask looks as if it were blown yesterday. It has no wear and sparkles like new. – Eric Correla

In the spirit of the 4th and ’cause every one else is doing it I thought that I would send you two of my favorite eagle flasks from the collection. This ia a GI-26 in emerald green. Enjoy! – Sandor Fuss

Two of my double eagles. These two bottles should never have left the factory. I had to wait twenty years to get this one. Every time I would go over my friend Wally’s house, he would take it out and show me it because he new I collected double eagles. He would always point out that it was the best one he ever seen. – Eric Correla

Sharing my Eagle for the 4TH. Although not super rare, I did dig it, came out of the ground just like you see it from an 1840’s privy in Niles Michigan. A true, clear green, fairly good impression, and virtually no wear, I think they threw it away right after using it. I’m pretty sure it is a GII-73, Eagle Cornucopia – Bill DePeel

I will let one more eagle fly… my favorite NH eagle, the PANTALOON! – Michael George (Jeff Noordsy: it’s the proportions that makes this one. Most folks are unaware that the Pantaloon is twice as thick as most figured flasks. Gives the piece great presence. Mike’s is ex Mebane and ex Gardner – it’s the finest I know of.)

Happy 4th of July. Our fireworks were cancelled due to the fish and game people threatening lawsuits if the
local young eagles were disturbed! – Mike Brauser

Here is a historical smile. Happy 4th of July everyone – Greg Sweet
