Quite a lineup of Railroad Flasks


The McKearin Historical Flask Group V – Railroad Flasks


Got close to 60 of the railroad flasks on my new shelves now. With over 125 of them, hard to figure how I am going to display/setup. My wife is messing with a new camera, so its WIP with pictures. Colors are just incredible… Once I finish with the flasks, onto demi’s (have over 100 of them). Figured out I am going to display in 3 sections….(free blown/2 piece mold/3 piece mold). All demi’s are New England…almost all under 12″. Then pint saratoga’s, utilities, etc…
