For as small a bottle that it is I was surprised to see the embossing on the bottom. I don’t see a suction mark and the mold line runs up to a cm below the lip where the lip was tool-finished (inside is smooth). Inside the bottle some bubbles are protruding and can be felt. There are a few big...
I have about 20 tabs open there lol. It is a great resource and I have tried to use their dating page but my general inexperience with the small differences in types of bases and tops always leads me to date it incorrectly when I come across pre-crown bottles.
What makes this a hinge mold and not a post bottom mold? I’m also intrigued that the base is off center...is that why it’s hinged? It’s about an inch on the short side and the other side is noticeably longer.
I was intrigued this had no makers mark on it. Looks like an applied double ring finish that is incomplete on the second ring. The interior of the bottle is not uniform and in the pictures the original mold blown top is visible in a cracked part the applied finish went over. It doesn’t have any...

I found this in Baltimore so I’m thinking it is from 1929 and not 1939 since that patent was submitted for approval in 1928 and not approved until 1929. It was only for a period of 7 years too.
The bottom says Pat Des 79296 and it’s made at plant 7 in 1939. I’m surprised I couldn’t locate it already by patent number or by having seen a similar bottle design before. The top is not a crown but a twist off.
The top for it was rusted on but I sat that in vinegar for about 10 hours and removed it. Inside was a cobalt blue type of substance that looks like it could have been paint.
The bottom has a C and then below it Made in U.S.A.
I found a similar jar before from the same spot that’s an Owens one from 1927 that I have used as my basis of comparison. I’m still new to this but the mold line runs up to the top and then stops before it. The inside is smoothish but it feels crimped above where the mold line ends so I think...
