A Cornucopia-Pinwheel American figured flask, circa 1820-1840, will highlight a sale of 152 early glass bottles and flasks at Norman C Heckler on November 4-13.
The half pint flask was most likely produced somewhere in the midwest, and features unique blood red colouring. It has an estimate of $25,000-50,000.
A free blown pitcher, most likely made by Willington Glass Works, is also featured at the Connecticut auction with an estimate of $10,000-20,000.
Other lots of note include a cobalt blue "Sheaf of Grain" flask by Baltimore Glass Works, valued at $10,000-20,000, and a sapphire coloured Eagle-Cornucopia flask that is expected to make around $8,000-16,000.
Company president, Norman C Heckler, commented: "It's a very diversified sale, with great examples from virtually every category of bottle collecting. The quality is equal to any we've ever sold.
"We are pleased to be presenting a diverse group of exciting objects from several important collections. It took two years to put this auction together, and we anticipate a knockout event."
Rare glass bottles can achieve impressive figures at auction. In 2012 a flask featuring medallions and diamond diapering achieved $111,150 at Heckler.
The record for an antique glass bottle at auction is $176,670, set in 2010 for a General Jackson eagle portrait flask, also at Heckler.
