GII-77 Concentric Ring Eagle – NG / CO. Flask

Provenance: Anonymous

The Concentric Ring Eagle “NG Co.” flask is circular in shape with heavy concentric ribbing with the exception of a circular medallion in the center. It it distinctly a darker green than most examples.

The medallion contains a crudely embossed eagle facing right on what is considered the primary face of the flask. The eagle’s tail is curved to the right and the talons appear to be grasping a very crude olive branch.

The reverse of the quart flask has a smaller circular medallion with two embossed lines reading “N G / Co.”

The GII-77 eagle is very similar to the GII-76 eagle. See the GII-76a and GII-77a variations noted below.

The flask has extremely heavy glass and can weigh two pounds or more.

The quart flask has a plain lip and a pontil mark.

Known colors are all extremely rare. These include bright green, clear light yellow-green, yellow-green, and peacock blue-green.

The flask was probably made at the New England Glass Company in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
