(Hope this is the right place to put these guys? As a relative newbie to this forum I'll probably break all sorts of rules and conventions, until people put me right!)

Here's a pair I've just recently made up with the later addition. Aqua halfsize onions, on the right a just pre1700, which I've had for a year or so, but last week added the slightly later one, in my eyes more attractive, but whatever, rare pieces, both strangely with blowpipe pontils which you wouldn't expect from otherwise classic English form bottles. Have put a bit more about them on my blog, but that will have to do for the moment for here...

Hello Mark, I like your glass pieces. I have collected glass for many years and now need to start finding new homes for some of it. I went to your homepage and wondered what type of glass you want to find. Check my homepage, RED Matthews

Hey Mark, your turning up some cool stuff. I wouldn't think anything other that the typical black glass for that era over there. I know of some of the small meds etc.in the 1810-30 in aquaish colors but never new of the mass produced stuff. There must have been an area with the right sand and other mixers for it?
That's good to know even if it does blow my hole idea of what to look for. [:D]
PS, your not new, just kinda missing for a tad.

Hi everyone/guys/girls,
Thanks for the comments. I checked over your website Red and will look forward to really digesting the various technical observations and discussions on there.
My own website www.earlyglass.com is simply a catalog of some of my stock of roughly 1000 bottles, all either freeblown or pontilled or earlystoneware, or related items. Everything from sealed shaft and globes to Romano/Syrian etc, but nothing much later than around 1850, though have to admit have expanded a little bit in that area too. It's not all on there by anu meas, inded the best stuff is in the reserve collection. Do click on the latest pages (I think numbering around page 60+ now. Just click on the "GO" button then navigate to the last pages (numbered at the bottom) and work backwards...
To cowseatmaize, yes I look forward to being a more major part of the forum now - I'm doing a deidacted push in the American area, so will be posting lots more of this sort of stuff n pics.
Hope you don't all get fed up of me!!!!!

oh here's something just to be keeping people entertained...a sealed shaft and globe I got last year in auction. I would LOVE to have seen the owners reaction when he saw what had happened to his seal.....:)

Great bottles,...especially in aqua glass! Love the seal too.

Thanks for that Joe, yes weird seal. Strange that it must have survived although wrong, and no correct o0nes known. Unless it was actually done on purpose? it would be an interetsing talkingpoint to take a wax seal and make your insignia impression on it with your wine bottle, so it appeared the right way round?
I don't know. You would think that somebody would have thought about it, I mean a seal dies must have taken some while to make and cost a bit....
Would be interested to hear comments/other explanations?

Yes Mark,...you're welcome, and as Red Matthews would say,...A "bottle mystery" with that seal. Considering it's age, we may never know if it was intentional or not, but perhaps a reversed example will surface sometime...Just one of the intresting facets of collecting antique bottles! Lot's of question marks...[:D]

do you have much in the way of early embossed medicines? They are a tough catagory.

Hi Antiquemeds,
I certainly do get them, am always chasing them, but they do go very quickly, as you probably know, at least the classic early English ones do, lead glass etc. I have various still in stock, but I think mostly only the usual common ones now or American ones (all obviously common ones I rush to say!). I will check through though.
Just sold a blackglass Daffy's probably the last decent English med I've had. Always on the lookout but they are particularly the thing here at the moment, everyone jumping over each other to get to them...:)

Thanks for the comment, it's my own pointing of my barn this one, though both my coottage and my barn are built the same of granite, and both pointed throughout by me and my better half. the cottage being about 200 years old. Though that's not so particularly old around here. The farm up the lane from me was "modernised" in 1772!!!! :)

To own a old seal bottle like that would be an awesome feeling. To triple that feeling would be to dig one, intact. I hope I will get into an 18th century pit one of these years [:D]

Thanks for your comeback earlyglasscollector; I just reviewed the thread. I have to point out that the person that made the seal stamping tool, made the letters as he thought they should be in the iron stamp. I am sure after it was done someone had to realize the stamping tool was not made in reverse as it should have been. This type of error happened with a lot of tired bench hands doing the letter cutting in the molds they were chipping in. RED Matthews

Thanks for the reply Red, yes I had presumed this was the case with the reversed seal. it's actually not that uncommon and I've had quite a few similar examples in my time. Of course many of these workers probably could not read either, so would not necessarily have noticed the difference in any case.

Here's another seal, dated, a mallet this time, that I had a little while ago. Interesting and fairly rare to have just the one initial, (in this case mine! M...).., and with the date 17 and 30 either side. A good classic early mallet form. Interesting variation in all aspects of the seal, the script M and the split date. Sad to see this one go but I have to make a living!!!
