    Gordon's Gin maybe?

    I found this piece of glass and I can't seem to find out where it came from. I was thinking maybe the bottom of a Gordon's Gin bottle, but it doesn't have the twisted chord underneath the animal head. It also has the year 1841 split by a diamond between the 8 and the 4 and R-514 underneath.

    Any ideas are helpful! Thank you!

    This was actually a machine-made bottle from 1941, where 18 is the number of a plant of Diamond Glass Co. See, in particular, page 7 of the the following link:

    Thank you! I'm trying to figure out what the animal head is above it, but now that I know where it came from, I'll start looking there! Thanks again!

    It really does look like the Gordon's Gin logo, my guess would just be a later variation of it. Looks like a Gordon's base as well.
