Antique Bermuda Flasks and Bottles
|Examples from the local area either embossed ‘Bermuda’
or closely associated with our island’s history
have always been a collector’s
favorite. Please make arrangements to view my entire selection,
of decades of diligent search.
An immaculate Masonic Flask
found in local waters. c1820. $2,500
Soda bottles designed to lie horizontally so
that the cork remains moist and swelled, thus helping the tying wire to
keep the fizz in the liquid:
A pointed shaped hamilton embossed Charles
C Keane, Hamilton, Bermuda. c1860. $350
Round bottom sodas similarly designed:
M S T. c1890 Somerset. $175
