I'm a long time bottle collector and was asked by a friend to value this little jar. I've never seen one before so was hoping for input from this forum. Is it rare? What did it hold? I know Glenn & Co Perfumers succeeded L.W. Glenn around 1858 in Philadelphia, so was thinking this one may be Civil War period because of the shields. 4" tall,ground lip, glass is embossed vertically Glenn & Co with a shield embossed on front.
(Edward Glenn A> L. W. Glenn), perfumery & soap, 726 Chestnut Glenn Conrad, shoemaker,....tough one....as far as price...wow...that lid is FANTASTIC because of the age alone...price is tough...wow...I have asked a couple of people and they are blank...really obscure name......
You may find something useful about the container in this 1867 book: Philadelphia and Its Manufactures: A Hand-book of the Great Manufactories, page 557.

false. I put Glenn & Company, perfumers, Philadelphia in my browser and found several references. To get more specific information would likely require more "digging." Good luck!
