[attachment=seal.jpg] I've found pieces and parts of bottles I've suspected were in this age range. Just wish I'd found the whole bottle.

Does it read "Fervis" White 1739, or "Lervis", or "Iervis", maybe "Pervis"?That is a wine bottle seal, could have been on a Black Glass Onion bottle.Here is one with the same date but different name "Th Dan"

The first letter looks like a "t" but I believe it is a "j". I've found bases w/ deep kick ups and very crude and a few necks w/ applied string lips that were very crude that put me in this time frame but nothing whole. This was washed out of a shoreline where an old house was.The hard part is finding the person, all I've come across so far is in England. Thanks Steve.Jay

That IS a "J"....when you have an "I" that has a centre serif it is or was a "J" so this is Jervis. Would ave been either a squat or cylinder. www.earlyglass.com

There is this also I guess, hard to believe there aren't more. Search around, anywhere from $30-100+ that I see. Not nearly as extensive. Morgan, Roy. 1970’s (date not listed). Sealed Bottles: Their History and Evolution (1630-1930). The following from a seller listing description - “Published sometime in the 1970s (not dated). There are 120 pages including index and it is profusely illustrated with black and white photographs, line drawings and reprints of early bottle making tools, etc. This is one of the few reference books available on early applied seal bottles and is very difficult to obtain. Morgan has an index of seals and lots of information on the various forms of sealed bottles.” Text from http://www.sha.org/bottle/References.htm but wrong
