    G.B. Seely Stoneware New to Forums

    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!
