Dating late 1600's is this rare glass Spanish Pilgram's flask. The body is a dark amber while the applied handles and cross are deep purple. Unless you hold the flask to the light the applied purple pieces on the sides looks dark and one would assume it to be dark amber. You will need a flashlight to see that the cross actually purple glass. Purchased from the Byerly Antiques, Greensboro, NC in the 1980's. In excellent condition, it measures 4.5 inches high.
