The neck of the flask is decorated in wound threading in the same color of the body, nicely placed, the silvery iridescence giving the thread the appearance of silver wire! H: 7 in (17.8cm). A very nice example with mottled surface deposits and light iridescence. Ex Donald Brown Collection, Massachusetts, formed in the 1960's.
