    Acid-free rubber cement, which Elmer does put out, can be had in most any hobby section of stores. Use it and it only. Other glues may bleed through, alter the colors as they react with the inks,...

    I'd be ecstatic to have a bottle like that in my collection. That color and top are great.

    I've seen this done before: applying fake embossing. I'm now wondering if they all stem from the same source originally. Some sort of souvenir piece or something.

    Based on the swirled colors, the shape, the hobnail pattern, and the rough ends, I'd estimate this to be from a 1960s table-lamp.

    While these are slightly newer (1910s-1920s), yours from the 1900-1910s period would have had a label something like these.

    I agree with sunrunner. That foundation still looks surprisingly new. If it's not brick or, better still, stone, then it's seldom terribly old. Plain, flat-faced concrete blocks are also a bad sign...
