    RE: Embossed mustard barrels

    What does the embossing read?. The shape is more of the straight sided barrel mold, compared to the bulbous barrel molds, if its pontiled then your looking at probably pre 1870. I The top appears to be ground.
    It reminds me of a Wm. Scotten mustard from St Louis who used that mold with a ground top and was pontiled.
    SCPC is recovering from surgery and I am covering for her. I am her brother in law.

    RE: Embossed mustard barrels

    If you could try and take a good picture of the bottom of your jar that would help date it. From your pictures it looks like it may be pontiled. The pontils on most mustards are very weak at best. If you could try a straight center and a side slightly angled of the base pictures that may show the bottom.
    Thanks for posting your barrel.

    RE: Embossed mustard barrels

    Here is a barrel I dug over the weekend, clear glass, ground lip, smooth base, approx 4" tall. Not sure but it could have been a mustard. It had remnants of the original label as do most of the bottles from this dump but when they reach the air disintegration starts rapidly, it could not be saved or read enough to know exact contents or company...Al

    Hey surfaceone,

    Nah, Brah,

    They were discussing this guy @ Current Auctions and Sales under Is this guy serious? The mook from Pequannock has an imperfect understanding of bottles and the values thereof, but he did have that mustard . I'd like to say I've dug one, but "but, No-o-o-o-o." I'm sure they come up from time to time, under a less delusional platform.

    RE: Embossed mustard barrels

    Thanks for posting a picture of your latest dig. Probably a mustard because of its shape, but without embossing or a label its hard to say what was in it.
    Nice find and shape, different than most jars.

    RE: Embossed mustard barrels

    That is a much better picture. However still can't tell from the picture if its a smooth or pontiled base.
    If you want to try another base picture, look at the pictures that were posted earlier on this thread that show the base at an angle.
    Clarity is very important to see the base.
