    I wouldn't count out the filter idea, I've never seen a definite answer to the x question.

    My First Pontil Soda

    The x's on the bottles are for the type of porter (beer) they contained, double or triple X porters. I have several XXX porters and a R.C. & T with BROWN STOUT on the back. It has an iron pontil base.

    Quick search for that auction failed. Is that a Great Western auction number? I would think it could be either whiskey or medicine, I would lean toward whiskey.

    Glass egg- Most unusual find

    Interesting! I found one of these glass eggs many years ago in King and Queen County VA, and knew what they were used for, but I didn't know about the snake part. Since most snakes have unhinged jaws and inward curved teeth, I guess the loose jaw makes regurgitation possible.
