    Two Handled Demijohn

    Thank you Harry for your comments (second time) Thought I would show a less dramatic photo of the demi, color is more natural, less pronoused, just in case you were influenced by the earlier photos to compare the glass with modern Mexican gl. clowns? If not, can you provide a clown photo...

    Two Handled Demijohn

    Two Handled Demijohn

    Wistarburgh medicine vial and a cylinder small utility bottle.

    Wistarburgh Glass ID. Yes, the bottle was found in Maine app. 12 years ago. What I first thought was a large bubble on the bottom Now I believe it is a polished pontil scar that was enclosed in glass by (German connection) the double dipping of the bottom section. The gl. thickness is...
