    wishing well

    Hey all long time no talk!
    thought id try and date some wishing wells that i have (2 still need cleaning but):
    all 3 are different.
    the one on the right is 11 oz and looks like the words wishing well were painted on. only mark on bottom is Domglass symbol, "design registered" and a 4 under the Domglass.
    any help would be appreciated so i can catalog these! thanks!

    I'm pretty sure the acl version ( on the left ) is the newest of the 3

    I believe the one on the left, the newer one is 1978. I think I see the 8 to the right of the Dominion Glass logo. Plus the bottle is both ounces and ml. So after 1975.

    Agree with those who posted on the left and middle bottles.

    Dominion Glass bottles with a single digit on the base are almost always pre-1940 based on my observations. I would guess late 1930's for the one on the right. Someone who better knows the history of Wishing Well bottles could probably give a more accurate date.
