My husband was cleaning his grandparents basement and found this Stoneware bottle that has G B Seely engraved on it. I thought that they just made glassware. Just want to get an idea of how old it is. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Very nice! That's a pretty old one. I'm no expert in these things but I'd date it to the mid-19th century. Looks like he was from NYC. Nice American primitive stoneware!
I should say that we're from Upstate NY. Cool thats its pretty old, His grandparents are in their late 90s.
Very nice find. I was thinking mid-1800s too. Tod's site places it a tad later. Still an oldie and a goodie.
Y'all need to go over that basement, and any crawlspace with a fine tooth comb if the house is old. Don't forget to hit the attic, too!

Ah okay, from that bottle I'd guess you're looking at 1890s to 1900s era which is a good era to be finding things from!
Not sure I'd wanna try 100-year-old yeast!

Opps you are correct. The photo is the other bottle.
This bottle is now on hold.
I think you posted the wrong photo on this one, that doesn't look like an Ayer's Sarsaparilla to me. The three bottles could likely be the same age, as American glassmaking was a few decades ahead...
Hi and welcome to the forum! The Lea and Perrins probably dates to the late 19th or early 20th century, up to around the 1920s or so. It's hard to be precise with these UK bottles.
No way to know the original brand of the contents I'm afraid, the marking on the bottom refers to the glass company. I imagine it's possible to figure out which glass company it's from but I don't...
