Vintage 1960's Reproduction LESTOIL Light Blue Franklin TWD #3 American Eagle Bottle Hand Blown Bird 8 3/4 Inch size:
Please take the time to read the description below so you know what you are potentially buying.
This really nice hard to find vintage bottle is a reproduction from the late 1960's to early 1970's
of a really rare Bourbon Liquor Bottle by Thomas W. Dyott from the 1830's.
Yes, too bad, it is a Repro, but a Cool 1960's repro used by LESTOIL to sell their cleaning product back in the 1960's,
and this light blue one is quite hard to find especially in Canada.
It is a wonderful Light Blue bottle that measure 8 3/4 Inches in height
and is beautifully embossed on both sides with amazing decorations which leans me to feel that it is hand blown (but it is not).
On one side the embossed decoration is an American Eagle with a USA Shield banner, and clear initials below it "T.W.D."
On the other side there is a picture of an old Naval Vessel with the word FRANKLIN embossed below it. At First I thought the boat was named Franklin
or the captian and maybe it was linked to Captain Franklin Artic Voyage Expidition which failed in the 1800's,
but it cannot be that since it has the US Coat of Arms with the American Eagle and Shield, so it must mean Ben Franklin.
Also after some research, TWD was the initials of glass maker Thomas W. Dyott from the 1800's in Dyottville Pensylvania,
a famouse Elixer and hand blown factory glass maker, so I got excited thinking that this was a +100 years awesome Light Bluen bottle worth some great value.
but as stated, this is from the 1960's, BUT is still made with wonderful quality and fanstastic decorative embossing.
Overall, the bottle is gently used but remains in SUPER EXCELLENT condition.
It has NO CHIPS, NO CRACKS, and NO MELTMARKS.
Its only flaw is it does not have the original cork stopper.
WHAT A GREAT HARD TO find LESTOIL Light Blue Franklin TWD #3 American Eagle Bottle for collectors of all ages.
