UNIQUE SEALED NAILSEA BOTTLE FLASK
A truly exceptional flask with seal incorporating an anchor and ships figure head. I believe the seal has been stamped upside down so deciphering exactly what appears in the seal is not easy to ascertain. The flattened body is profusely enamelled with white splotches making this a highly attractive flask. No other examples are recorded. Rough pontil to base. Height 6.6 inches, width 4.5 inches. Apart from general wear on the seal there is no other damage apart from a pinprick nibble on the lip. Pictured and recorded in Antique Sealed Bottles, page 1490 and also on the front page of Volume 3. English or Scottish C1740/60.
