    Zachary Taylor: A Rare Half Pint Flask, With A Cannon As the Main Device, Rather Than the Familiar Military Bust. This light aqua flask features a cannon on the front surrounded by the slogan "Genl. Taylor Never Surrenders". The reverse bears one of Taylor's more famous quotes, "A Little More Grape Capt. Bragg", with a bunch of grapes below and scattered smaller bunches in the field around. While it is not considered as rare as the Harrison flask offered elsewhere in this sale, this is a variety we have not seen before, and especially desirable because of its highly unusual design. Choice condition.
