Lilienthal Distillers

Here is a nice little half pint flask which was recently found during a house remodel in Washington. it was found in the ceiling/floorboards in a house built in the 1880s. Man I never get this lucky. It was completely covered in a black soot type substance, but washed up to gem mint condition!
 These Lilienthal's are not exactly exotic or rare, but with a large glob top in the half pint, they are not easy to find. The color is nice, and it has  very bold embossing which is tough to find on these. I would say there are about 12-15 applied top half pints in collections. I have seen them in a super light lemon yellow color, but they are usually very weakly embossed...
