“Stiegel” Enameled German Schnapps Flask: Baby Blue w/ Mounted Soldier! #GF665 - For Sale
“Stiegel” Enameled German Schnapps Flask: Baby Blue w/ Mounted Soldier! #GF665
Here is an outstanding, Stiegel type, enameled GERMAN glass schnapps flask, circa 1770, deep baby blue color glass beautifully enameled with a soldier on horse back. There is no German verse on the back and the only mounted soldiers of the period that wore red coats with black hats were the British. So….possibly made for the British market just prior to the American Revolution. About 6 ¼” tall. Some very minor enamel losses, see photos, otherwise perfect. The pewter collar is perfectly intact. Super rare piece!!!
Price is firm.
