Nice bottle Charlie, I'll be checking back to see what you find out about it.

Hey Charlie, That is an outstanding little beauty! How'd you come upon it? Could it be a Cathedral Mustard? http://jenfunkweber.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Sant-Ignazio-miniature-detail.jpg

That's a great guess Surf, I guess..! A guy was standing at the base of a hill where large machinery was dumping big piles of relocated used earth.. it rolled down the slope and landed at his boot. He stuck it in his pocket and put it with all the other bottles he grabbed off the piles.. then he called me and I paid him a visit and there it is.. I'll consider offers but I really want to know more about this little booger too..

Does the guy who stands at the base of hill dumps call you with regularity? I'd like to have a guy like that call me. Did you visit the hill, your own self?

No, of course you would, and no.. we were both virgins, but it's a beginning of something, maybe..

Word on the street is it's pomade for the hair, a labeled example was for sale at the Coventry show, very rare bottle....

Thanks for the help folks! The one Kate took a pic of has a different lip treatment, otherwise looks the same. I wonder if this was a stock bottle from a glass house or made for a particular company?Apparently, there's some chat about this same specimen on face book, which I do not belong to... I didn't pass their IQ test.. if any of you are FB'ers and see this posted there, let them know about this thread please..

The lip treatment doesn't mean much to me. Some people prefer one to another when collecting and when they were originally ordered. Many are at the blowers whim or maybe ordered for an additional expense. It takes more time to flare or apply a lip than it does to make a simple rolled.The mold it was makes the difference, the same panels, shoulder and other dimensions would make it the same bottle IMO.

Your picture looks like a sloppy rolled outwardly to me. I guess the pontil looks like it could have been a blow pipe ring from the makers double blowpipe operation of empontilling but I couldn't tell for sure from the size comparison. RED Matthews

Well I have been unpacking glass until I got almost all of my shelves loaded. I also realize that I have about 15 different but similar bottles to the ones you have shown here. Some of mine are round and square; and a little different in height. At this time I have over 300 bottles here in my bottle den. It is a little crowded, but most of these bottles are different that each other, with different finishes, molding methods, pontil marks, and application to our large number of product delivery. I have most of them numbered, and described, for my daughters selling efforts when I check out of this world. I am just too stubborn to go yet. All I can do is smile and put it off. RED M.
