c. 1848 Patriotic Glass Flask, Patriotic Zachary Taylor & George Washington, Light Green Color, Pint size, Near New.
Zachary Taylor (1786-1850) was Inaugurated as the 12th President of the United States on March 5, 1849 and died in office little more than a year later, on July 9, 1850. This light green nearly clear, blown-glass flask is made to honor Major General (and later United States President) Zachary Taylor. The glass cast portrait of Old Rough and Ready, as Taylor was known, appears on one side of the flask which has his name, “G. Z. Taylor,” under his image. The raised central portrait of General George Washington along with "Washington" below, appears on the opposite side. This historical Flask measures 7.25" x 4.5" in Pint size.
