Found this today. It is a hand-tooled flask with a circle slug plate embossing that reads: Edward Rafter Importer New York City.
Can't find any information about Mr. Rafter or his imports buisness, perhaps it was just a short lived enterprise.
Went on another adventure today. First went snorkeling off an old pier, nothing to be found there but big sea snails unfortunately. Had more luck at another location where the recent rain storms had washed away some of the surface.
Found a nice tooled pumpkin seed flask and a old perfume...
The Gallagher Stores were a small chain of grocery stores that operated for a short time in New York City from 1902 until their closure in 1906. This is one of their tooled-lip, strap-sided, slug plate-embossed alcohol flasks.
I've got this tall green flask with a long glass "string" wrapped around the neck of the bottle. It appears to have some oxidation/rusting on the surface of the glass, potentially from its age.
It's got an open pontil and a blob-y flared lip with some large bubbles in the glass.
