Henry William Stiegel, who operated the American Flint Glass Manufactory from 1765 to 1774, was the first successful producer of glass tableware that was the equal of European imports. The diamond-daisy pattern in this amethyst-colored pocket flask was probably made by Stiegel; the pattern was not used by European glassmakers. Many variations of this popular design exist, as seen in other pieces in the collection (see 1980.502.68 and 34.65).
