Hi all. Original pictures just for scope view. We will post pictures of specific artifacts we are trying to identify for age, manufacturer location, and use. Attached are a couple of pictures of a case type lip fragment we think may be older than most items and maybe blown from Stoddard or other New England glassworks. But we don’t know! Any comments? Lip is very crudely done. Profile picture is with incandescent “daylight” light and picture from above is with pure white light for gem ID. Sun is not out today. Thanks in advance for all help!View attachment 217424View attachment 217425View attachment 217425View attachment 217423

One more item for comments. This push-up bottom does not show any seams in this small sample but we are speculating this was possibly free blown. Any thoughts?

A lot of stuff to try to zoom and study. Could we get closeups of the circled piece. I may be seeing things but it's hard to tell.

Hi Mr. Chip! Sorry about not responding sooner. See pictures attached. Looks like turn mold with push-up base in this small one. Very irregular base thickness and a lot of whittling on pushup. An old one?? As you can see, small diameter.

The aqua bases and sides you posted are from mustard bottles-they would have been embossed London down the side. If you google "London mustard bottle pontil" you'll see a bunch of examples.
