    I'd say 1870-1890 would be a safe time frame, with that lip suggesting the earlier part of the time period. But none of our time estimates are 100%, they sometimes used forms earlier than we think...

    that looks like it would polish up to a really neat cornflower blue, not just your typical aqua. 3x on citrate of magnesia. They seemed to be a product that came in very uniform packaging.

    Wiki link to Kia Ora. Didn't exist before 1903. Did sell in UK until 1917. Still made. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kia-Ora

    I can find some images for ads for the stuff from the 1930s. ...

    One thing we can agree on is that you've stumped us all in that none of us can ever remember seeing one before. The indentation looking like a place in the mold for a lamp cord is a sage...

    It feels very Pier One to me, but I can't find anything exactly like it, and it does appear to be an applied lip, not ABM. The fancy round window and somewhat gothic door motif on what's supposed...

    Alcohol bottle, either beer or liquor of some sort. British or colonies. They were made in very basic and similar form over a long period of time from maybe 1850 or so to after 1900.

    probably one of a hundred standard products of a TOC glasshouse. I bet they were used as nipper flasks, extracts, vinegar, flavorings... Anything for which a small, cheap, fairly flashy little...

    The screw cap appears to be some sort of bug dope, ala Off. Early 20th century as an early screw top. Maybe 1905-1920s? Not much value in most bottles from that period, not yet anyway...

    I was curious so I tapped their website. Sounds like they are "rebranding" as purely CBD product. Guessing the legalization isn't moving fast enough for them to hold on. Those first THC based...

    Neat. never seen those but then again Vermont is just moving now towards legalization of MJ... Plenty of folks on here collect bottles that are not necessarily antique, and the definition of...

    Search Oban decanter bottle on google images. Not exact but oban used to come in sort of a decanter form that sure looked a lot like your bottle. That's my bet. My Fa in Law had a bottle of Oban...

    My observation down here in the US has been that the internet, particularly auctions like Ebay, are tough on the group antique shops. Now the pickers can go directly to the retail market without a...

    Weird lip. We'd need to see the mold seam on the side but my guess is the same as Sandchip... machine made.

    Concur. That's a Jamestown tourist offering. Heavy glass, a very consistent green. I had a mug they made that I used for years until it died. Neat stuff but not old.

    Any chance you'd post a before and after on one of your bottles that's been through the process? i'd love to see what it does/how well it works.

    I've not seen a repro case gin bottle. The problem with case gins is they were used from practically back in the 17th century up to the early 20th century. The basic square, tall, tapered with...

    Not a repro or a fake if that's your question. Looks like a nice one. I don't know the case gins well. They don't seem to go for big $ without a seal on them, but I'd say you did exceptionally...

    If you put a pic of the receiving bottle on, people would have some ability to try to color match it.

    Just as a general guideline, most things with mold seams that go all the way to the top of the lip (made in an automatic bottle machine) don't have much value. Most unembossed "slicks" don't carry...

    I'd say that's modern art glass. It's crude because it's made to look crude, probably is even hand blown. But it's no form from the 1850s era that I know of, it looks far too thick to be...

    I think your age assessment on that one is good. I'd definitely put it earlier than TOC... its an older design.
