Very rare unique color emerald-green I think made in 1848 and design of historical flasks of american primitive portraits in glass. There are no cracks or chips this is one of the very rare color of flasks in this category are the Washington-Taylor series of flasks. This is a Historical Flasks, the picture is a quart size version with General Taylor on one side (with the embossing GENERAL TAYLOR NEVER SURRENDERS - a reference to his Mexican War exploits in 1847) and George Washington on the other (with the embossing THE FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY). wondering how much one of these might be worth?

    The hard part is figuring out if it's an original or a much more common replica.
    Originals can be worth hundreds to even thousands of dollars depending on color and condition. Replicas are very common and have been made for many years starting in the early to mid 1900's. You basically need to have an expert or experienced collector examine it in person.

    Albeit this post is 5 year old, I'll say that
    The colour is wrong
    The top is tooled, not applied, which is wrong
    It likely lacks an open pontil
    And it was likely made in the 1970s.
