    the ring at the top of what on a bottle would be a lip strongly suggests that it's ABM. I'd still say early 20th century though.

    If the brewer was in business from 1866 to 1900, that bottle is definitely at the beginning of their time in business. I'd say that's an early smooth base piece from 1870ish. Don't know if it's...

    That would be the McKearin and Wilson system of classifying flasks. GXII is that particular style of Union flask, and 33 is the specific type that matches. Look for American Bottles and Flasks...

    None of those appear to me to be condition issues. In the fussy world of higher end bottles open bubbles on the outside of the bottle are now considered a defect, despite the fact that the dude who...

    The green bottle is a master ink. the little blue one with the pontil mark is either a soda or beer, probably pre-1860. The strap side flask in the middle is circa 1880. that one is pretty...

    Cleaned up probably $40. No real name for that form. Just a round squat ink. Not an easy David's to find.

    Saw one there yesterday, or was it the same bottle? it looked like a nice bright example.

    I have no direct knowledge but I've got to figure those numbers will vary tremendously depending on WHEN the bottle was made, decoration, etc.

    Could have been blown at any of 100 more more glass houses of the time. Very common. Most interesting if found with an interesting label.

    I thought I remembered the Dr. Virgil's labels as a fantasy label but a google search isn't turning anything up. it certainly has all the looks of a fairly old label.

    Automatic bottle machine so made post 1906. I'd say that bottle style could be anywhere from the 1910s through the 1950s. When did the "black face" type figure fall out of style... 1960s?

    At first glance it looks a little like a pontil but the lip isn't right for a pontil. I think it's just a mold mark. Bottle would be around 1880 to 1900.
