I would think that blowing glass into the silver framework would result in small glass bulges in various open sections of the framework, resulting in an unacceptable-looking flask. But I am not a glass-blower, so maybe it is possible to disburse the glass evenly within the framework.

The binocular stick-man has what looks like binoculars to me. I wouldn't expect Forrest's hip flask to look the same. I am surprised about the small amount of liquid it holds. If true, it seems that Forrest's flask is very small. Has anyone seen it in real life? Maybe the 3/16 numbers mean something.

it would be easy to make a smooth mold to blow glass into, then assemble the pieces... looks like 3 pieces to me, look at the seam.

3/16 pint would be 3 fl. oz.

According to my subscription(JK) of "Modern Drunkard Magazine" (not kidding, a real thing just found it)

a 2 oz. flask is called a breath freshener
a 4 oz. flask is called a casual carry
I didn't see a name for the 3 oz.

Also, the bottom will come off on some of them to serve as a cup.

Enjoy.

Good info. I guess Forrest's flask is not that small then, just somewhat small. However, I can't help thinking that 3/16 means something if he is prone to putting hints in scrapbooks.

3/16 = 0.1875

Maybe 1875 is a hint ?

Just one highlight of that year :
