This is a one of a kind item, a chestnut flask with applied handle, open pontiled bottom, and original labels on both sides. The front label is tan/brown painted, and the other side label is paper. Some nice bubbles in the glass too.
Unembossed, the labels read: GENUINE HOLLANDS / GENEVA / KEY BRAND (pic of skeleton key) / BLANKENHEYM & NOLET / DISTILLERS & RECTIFIERS / ROTTERDAM / PRODUCT OF HOLLAND // HOLLAND GIN
Height: 8 1/2"
Condition: attic found, near mint - perfect structurally with no dings, chips, cracks, etc. Clean except for a very faint horizontal haze patch. Only spotty light wear such as base wear and a light scratch or too mentioned for accuracy. See pics for condition of the labels. The paper label is excellent. The gold painted label has a vertical line and some spotty missing paint, likely from being inserted into a wooden crate. A possibly unique item.
