Early Western "wormser / San Francisco" Whiskey Flask For Sale

Early Western "WORMSER / SAN FRANCISCO" Whiskey Flask
This whiskey was a favorite among 19th century miners in both California and Nevada as evidenced by where these bottles turn-up. This one was found on the Western side of the Sierra Nevada mountains in Northern California in 2002. These are one of the oldest embossed Western whiskey bottles and not a commonly found item. Embossing reads: “WORMSER BROS. / SAN FRANCISCO” on two vertical lines. Hand blown into a two part mold in a golden amber colored glass, circa 1867-71. It has an applied double collar top and a smooth concave base. Size is a little bigger than a pint measuring 8-1/2" tall x 3-3/4" wide. This is an excellent example that’s been a part of my collection since finding it little over ten years ago. It’s totally free of any defects, scratches, satin or wear. Very lightly professionally cleaned inside and out retaining full glass character & surface texture. Likely contained "Golden Sheaf" bourbon that was promoted by the company in the later part of 1867. This is a very nice Western flask in the best of condition that's sure to please. The firm of Wormser Bros. was located on the corner of California and Front Streets in San Francisco and listed as importers and jobbers of wines and liquors. Established in 1856 by Isaac Wormser, who was president of the company and his brother Lewis the manager. In 1864 Lewis left San Francisco and his brother Simon took over management of the company. In October of 1867, during Simon’s management of the firm, they trademarked the “Golden Sheaf” brand of whiskey. By 1872 the Wormser Bros. business was sold to the firm of Braeg Frank and Dallemand.
