As far as dating the bottle, I am just not sure. The glass looks 20th century, but the base wear looks significantly older.
I would rather call it "Globular" than an onion bottle.
It is the...
I don't blame you.
It is not a bottle to get rich on, but the very rare bottles always increase in value over time.
I would much rather look at that Bitter's bottle than Andrew Jackson's face.
So I say yes, indeed.
Gotta be rare, at least, I found nothing but the dose glass. It's not for sale per chance?
Do you think it was a 1/2 pint or pint?

Do you have a green Rochester one?
That certainly looks like a Pittsburgh area glasshouse double eagle shard to me. Not a GII-106 like my two but close. I'll hunt around a little tonight.
Were the other flasks smooth based (as well)...
Why I don't like E bay (For Selling):
Vintage? It was vintage 100 years ago.
Kinda like this one :
If you could, a few good pics of the base would be great. Try to show base wear around the circumference if present and of course the indentation, which is likely an iron pontil scar.
BTW, If you are only thinking about selling it, don't.
The very rare bottles stand to increase in value as well as any investment.
Give the extremely rare bottle 20 years or so and you can start...
Thx for the pic with the dirt.
Great little gem.
It almost gets me excited enough to dig again.
But, never have I found a great bottle digging. (Unless you count digging through old boxes in an...
I'm reasonably sure that bottle would bring $1000+ at Hecklers now. I've done a bit of business with Norm Sr. Jr. and of course Greg.
Just go the website and go to "contact us," attach a picture...
Very cool, I too like those "frontier" area local bottles.
That said, not as much as some other bottles so I am selling one from my collection.
"Poison / The Sun / (Winged Mortar) / Drug Co. /...
Is the one to the right of the amber whiskey base embossed?
Nice INK there.
Here is an advertisement (1851)
And here is a 2012 auction (Norman Heckler Auctions) listing with the selling price to...
Gorgeous. It sure has that "Lockport Green" look to it.
Nice "orange peel" look to it also.
I'd say that without any damage, it would at least do as well as the eBay sale Andy referenced, I think...

nice bottle btw
Yup, nice one there.
I'd say it was made in Europe, second half of the nineteenth century, and was an early import to the Americas.
The glaze and handle shape appear more Scandinavian than German or French.
If I had...

BTW sandchip, that one leaves me nearly speechless.
So delicate, whittled, the flared lip, pontil mark, COLOR.
Just a fantastic bottle, one I could hold in my hands and rub for a while.

That's what I always thought, but some great Fla bottles are out there, In fact one of my top five is a Florida Poison I bought in rural Pennsylvania (far right in photo).
Another top five type for...

I have only one favorite:
Dingens Napoleon Cocktail Bitters, Buffalo NY, smoke colored, Iron pontil.
I picked this up Saturday
I kinda like it.
"Lockport green" perchance?
Pictures !!!!!!! Please.
