Photograph is of drawing made by Harry Hall White after he found fragments of flask and reconstructed form and design of flask on paper. Photograph features front and back views, displayed side by side. View on left bears bust profile of A. Jackson; above that name are the initials of Jonathan Tinker, a glassblower and co-founder of the Mantua Glass Works. Below the portrait is the word "Ohio". View on right features variety of Masonic symbols. Flask featured corrugated edge.
This flask is very rare, though it was probably produced in commercial quantities sometime between 1824 and 1829. Additional letters can be barely seen on the flask itself; likely, this was due to the fact that the mold maker did not originally cut the letters in reverse.
"7" stamped, upside down, in blue ink on upper left corner of verso.
Sent to photography December 2013 (photography no. 1000137340) for inclusion in Notable Acquisitions 2013.
