Cathedral pickle found at the thrift store

Went to a thrift store yesterday for the first time in a while, I barely even check for bottles anymore since it's so unusual to find anything of interest. I almost passed this one by since at first glance it looked like some sort of Pier One Imports decorative bottle among the other vases and things. I'm really not very familiar with cathedral pickles, they don't often show up in Canada. Still not 100% certain this one is legit but it looks pretty good to my untrained eye. Anyone know any more about it than I do? Even if it turns out to be a repro I'm not too concerned since it only cost me $3.75, but I've got a good feeling about it. It's a really big bottle too, over 13 inches tall.

Thanks for the info Harry! Glad to get the confirmation that it's a genuine 19th century bottle, I figured it probably was but it just seemed to unlikely to find one in a thrift store. Shame it's not one of the more valuable ones but hey, for four bucks I can hardly complain!

Nice. I guess you're going to make a donation to the good volunteers at the thrift store, Aren't you?
