27 bids brought this lovely cobalt Louisville Eagle flask up to $3801. It was clear from the seller’s description that they had NO idea what they had! Guess they were surprised that this antique bottle brought that much.
In this case, the clear photos which appear to show the color with precision really helped buyers overcome any doubts about that the seller might not be accurately describing the item (not intentionally but because they are not a collector)
We suspect this bottle would have sold for more if offered via one of the auction houses such as Heckler’s or American Glass Gallery. It is a simple fact that buyers want the confidence that comes from buying from an auctioneer who describes the condition and the color with accuracy.
