    With the help of David Whitten from Glass Bottle marks it looks like the green bottle is likely from the 1870's and European. Just some educated guessing from him but good for now until we here otherwise He said to throw it out to the good folks on this website and I said that I did! He thought there was a pontil mark (sand or iron) from the additional pic's I sent and the fact that I could see a circular mark at the indentation point of the base and could feel a roughness as well.

    A couple more pic's of the base hoping it shows the pontil scar a little better.

    A few more cleaned bottles from the boxes:

    Amber "Dandy" whisky flask (at least that's what I think it is!) c 1910 - 1930's?

    John Lumb & Co
    John Lumb and Co, glass bottle manufacturers, of Castleford (Castleford is a town in the metropolitan borough of Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England)
    c1909-c1970
    The bottle appears to be machine made with a seam line goingfrom the base to the top of the finish (2nd J L & Co.Pic). Until I saw the seam line through the finish I thought it may havebeen an applied top as the finish was quite sloppy. A friend of mine said he would say the JL&Co bottle is an earlymachine-made version, likely 1910s-1920s. Many of the earlymachine-made bottles from Great Britain can look pretty crude!!
