A fantastic vintage glass dispensing flask. It has gold gilt writing with 'MEXCALLI' to the front. It dates from the first part of the 20th century but has later signwriting. We are unsure of what this vessel was used for but could be for a version of Mezcal, a distilled alcoholic liquid.  This fantastic flask would have been used in an apothecary or pharmacy for display. A lovely oversized piece perfect for display in a modern home to add character and soul to a space.  


Chips to glass along top and bottom edge. Residue left to bottom inside of vessel. There looks to be a historical repair to the bottom of the vessel stem. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.


20 cm base diameter, 19 cm base depth, 54 cm total height
