Hello all, hers a bottle I found recently, I wonder if the form is a common one, and what it would have likely contained.

here's the base, the lip is rolled inwards and very crude.

That looks pontilled! Nice early bottle. If you found that somewhere, go back! It has the typical look of a sauce or peppers or the like.

Here's a few other bottles from there, sadly the site is under a building now.

I guess I should be asking: what makes you think it's from that glass company?

That is a typical bottle design of that company. I 've seen lots of them, they came in lots of awesome colors, some were larger, too. I also think Sandwich cologne. They are easily researched.

There are two similar ones(different tops) style wise in the Pole Top Discoveris auction, all though they aren't by name. They're nice colored examples..#310 and 311.....Jim
