These early glassworks, in general, had a short life. before coal became the heat source,
they had to burn hardwoods. the temps were hard to control / maintain. it was...

I recently purchased an early Swaim's Panacea which I believe may
have been made at the Kensington Glass works. This is a very early embossed
medicine. I recall seeing a newspaper advertisement...

That's a local soda for me. I've dug several over the years. The iron pontil examples are

love this stuff. so hard to dig whole.

I would agree Harry. doesn't really make sense that wood was used, but it's really hard to
say what went on during the early days of glass blowing. love the discussion.
I recently purchased a snuff bottle and wanted to check out the meaning of " dip mold " blown bottles.
quite interesting. these molds were made of various materials; wood, clay, metal or even a...
