    I have a neat old bottle embossed with "/ EXCELSIOR SPRING SARATOGA " in green glass.

    It is quite unique in my opinion because it has a hand tooled crown finish. The bottom looks like it had been empontilled with a domed punty rod, but there is no clue to a contact media. I did a big study on these bottles years ago, but I am just getting back into a review of my example...
