Uncle Bruce, approximately when were they blown?
Ranging from the 1870s - 80s. The glass in these is in reality an olive green. The only way to tell is to hold them up to a very strong light source. I've heard there are amber BLACK GLASS bottles too. From the depression era there is decorative glass that looks black, but is beautiful amethyst.
