Thread: River Bottle

  1. #1

    River Bottle

    I found this in California. It has an applied top, seams from a clamshell mold with extruding glass and only the three numbers on the base shown as markings. Any thoughts as to what I have here? I posted here because of the extrusion suggesting an older less well fitting mold. The bottle is a little dirty from the river, so I have more cleaning to do. I have another in my collection, but it the seems are a bit more finished and they do not run through the base like this one.

    Looks like an old beer or mineral water bottle, probably from around 1880-1900.

    another river bottle

    This one has no seam. It is a wine bottle with tool marks on the neck, an applied top, bubbles in the glass and the stopper still inside
