Vintage Bicentennial Bottle, Cobalt Blue, Charles Jacquinet, 1976 Souvenir, Glass Collectible, Home Decor, George Washington, Maryland

$148.60 $185.75

The gorgeous cobalt-blue Maryland Glass Company George Washington bust-shaped bottle is in great to excellent condition. According to references, this beautiful glass collectible was made by the Maryland Glass Company. There is embossed information on the lower front, lower back, and on the bottom. The lower front shows "23 FL. OZ.". The lower back has "LIQUOR BOTTLE" with "1976 Bicentennial" below. The round bottom has "CHARLES JACQUINet Cie Inc. PHILA. PA. EST 1864" along the outer edge with a "75", "30", and "6" around what appears to be an embossed mark with "6T" and "IE" on either side of the CJC mark. Below the embossed mark it has "AMERICA'S OLDEST CORDIAL PRODUCERS". Along with its beautifully embossed accents, the design of the presidential regalia including the shoulder covers, buttons, and tie are incredibly bold and inviting to the touch. While the lower section of the bust portrays an energetic and well-kept George Washington, the features of the head - particularly in the area of the face - depict the president as being older and seemingly more frail. The most likely explanation for the older-face depicted on this bottle is that even in his old age, the president was still well-kept and prepared for whatever might come his way. This explanation would also match the longevity of Charles Jacquinet Cie Inc. noted on the bottom as "AMERICA'S OLDEST CORDIAL PRODUCERS'.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Even more, depending on the lighting, the cobalt-blue glass can sometimes look more purple than blue. Also, the original screw-on lid is not with the bottle.

There are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this gorgeous cobalt-blue Maryland Glass Company George Washington bust-shaped bottle. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the bottle - mainly in the form of very faint rub marks on the round foot of the base where it has come in contact with different surfaces. Also, while the bottle has been lightly washed with mild soap and water, there are some very faint and super small areas of dust and/or debris in the textured surface - mainly near the embossed sections. In addition, the interior appear to be very clean.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous cobalt-blue George Washington bust-shaped glass bottle are many. The display case or china cabinet would be enhanced by the addition of this incredibly beautiful cobalt-blue glass collectible. Also, the open collectibles shelf or spacious bookcase would welcome this George Washington bust-shaped glass bottle for its stunning cobalt-blue color and patriotic-Bicentennial charm. In addition, the growing collection of old bottles would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this incredibly ornate cobalt-blue Bicentennial souvenir glass bottle.

The collector will appreciate this Maryland Glass Company Charles Jacquinet Cie, Inc. souvenir glass bottle for its great to excellent condition, stunning cobalt-blue color, intricately designed features, patriotic-Bicentennial charm, and beautiful overall appearance.

The collectible 1976 Bicentennial cobalt-blue glass bottle weighs approximately 24 oz.

The gorgeous cobalt-blue Maryland Glass Company George Washington bust-shaped flask/bottle measures approximately 9.25" tall to the top of the rim x 5.25" wide across the shoulders from outside to outside x 3 15/16" wide across the round base from outside to outside.

The rim measures approximately 1" wide across from outside to outside with an opening measurement of .75" across from inside to inside.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
