What could be better than a great investment that offers history,
Lot 67 beauty and years of pleasure? If you had deep enough pockets,
Old Master’s paintings might fit the bill but for folks with lesser
means, historical/pictorial flasks continue to be just such an investment.

Flasks that were once relatively common at many bottle shows 20 years
