Case gin, black glass.Blown in mold. 10 and 1/4" in height, 3 and 1/4 square at top, tapering to 2 and 1/4" square on bottom. Applied lip. Smooth base with unidentified embossing. Embossed on side " THE PHILANTROP ONLY IMPORTED BY LUICHSSAILA DENERARA" and a man holding a staff with a large crown over his head. This is a nice embossed gin, a little harder to find then the plain variety and hence of greater value.Ca: late 1800's. Photo and info courtesy of Mike. Much Thanks.
