    RE: Albany Glass Works

    Sorry, all I have are questions. Do you happen to know what years the Albany Glassworks was in business? I've heard some of their bottles have an infinity symbol or two chain links embossed on them... can you tell me anything about that?

    RE: Albany Glass Works

    The glass works was actually located near present day Albany in the town of Guilderland and was known as the Hamilton Glass works . It operated from the late 1700's to the early to mid 1800's and produced some beautiful bottles but the primary business was window glass . There are many reproduction peices out there so careful - most of them are obvious to any one familiar with old glass . As far as distinctive bottle marks try myinsulators.com/glass-factories/bottlemarks3.html .

    I have a brown Albany Glass works bottle with Washinton on one side and a boat on the other. The bottle looks really old but I do not know if it a reproduction. Have pictures if interested.

    RE: Albany Glass Works

    All of the Albany Glass Works flasks have pontils with various lip finishes and colors - They are all GI flasks in 1/2 and full pint . There are many repros of this flask - the lack of a pontil and the odd colors and stovepipe type necks give them away in most cases - Look at the last Heckler Auction for a look at some great Albany Glass works flasks , proving again color is everything . Good luck ! Wisharts
