    My best guess is this is a scent bottle -- lavender, rosewater, etc. Popular in England near the TOC20.

    That's interesting. I have a black (olive-amber) example with || on the label side. I have no idea about such marks other than possible mold-marks.

    I suspect that WesternPA has it right . . . the reference is to a "registered" brand or trademark. Imitations and knock-offs were rife in the later 1800s.

    Zumwalt figures two D & C bottles, one probably British, the other could be American. No illustration like our bottles and no "D & G" listing in the book. She didn't identify the D & C, though it...

    Assuming the two onion bottles are continental ("Dutch") in origin, they date from 1720 to about 1760. The value is a bit variable, depending on condition and form -- $50 - $150, or so.

    I agree about appearance. The shorter bottle is definitely British . . . It is made of relatively thick, aqua glass, while the taller bottle is colorless, thin glass. The sand pontil scar argues...

    Is this a peppersauce bottle?

    I found a duplicate of this bottle -- broken -- in the Suwannee River at an early steamboat landing. This is a tall, well-made, thin-walled bottle with a crude lip. Perhaps a French or British...

    It's remarkably clean -- an "attic bottle" for sure. But, "wiped top" sounds like a "tooled lip" rather than an "applied lip." An applied lip involves a separate blob of glass applied to the bottle...

    I do understand your argument, Jim. You are making two assumptions:

    1) The labels "1789" are original, applied in 1789 or thereabouts.
    2) The contents were decanted (from a cask) into brand-new...

    Bottles of the late 1700s are finished by applying to the neck a separate string of glass, flat with bottom edge more prominent (commonly, but not exclusively). The bottle is then sheared from the...

    Well, brother, what CAN we agree on? I think we can agree that the bottle mold was cut by a skilled craftsman. No one has argued that the bottle was blown in China or India for the dollar-store...

    I am with the skeptics on this one. "Too precious" is a good observation. I would point out that the bottle appears to have a tooled lip, not an applied lip. A relatively early fantasy bottle,...

    Bingo! That's close enough. You, Old Wiltshire, are "Mr. Research"! I still don't know what this bottle was used for, but it is "vintage" as opposed to antique. I declined the trade.

    Is this an ink bottle, or what?

    I have been offered this bottle as a trade, but I'm not sure just what it is. Anyone here recognize this rather distinctive bottle?
