Item number: SG6833
Origin: Loretto, KY
Inscription: Burks Spring (in slanted script with a long tail to the "g", with 4 grain stalks at left and a frosted barrel at lower right etched in tsp letters: PURE OLD / RYE / WHISKEY) / 15CTS (slanted) / 2 FOR 25C (slanted) / BOTTLED BY / THE DISTILLERS / T.L.SMITH & SONS. / LORETTO,KY.
Dimensions: 2-1/2" x 2-1/4" x 1-5/8"
Condition:  This is glass that has sat in a curio cabinet for 100+ years by the looks of it, although it does have superficial handling marks. The gold rim is at about 90% The label is something of a botched strike - there are smudges at the bottom and the etching compound has not taken in places, but no signs of wear. I only know of only one other example of this glass and it's in a collection and not for sale. A original KY distillery glass in this condition is highly desirable.
