    Green rum(?) bottle with embossed K on bottom

    Not sure if this is before 1900 since there isn't a pontil but the lip looks old and the surface is what I believe is called 'whittled'? Maybe the mark on the bottom helps in some way. I'm learning as I go and finding this site is a great resource for researching some of these old bottles.

    It's likely a mineral water bottle, it looks very similar to the Hunyadi Janos Bitterquelle bottle. https://www.peachridgeglass.com/2015...itters-bottle/ Probably European and dates to around the late 19th or early 20th century.
