Found this jar in the creek dump. It's bimal, very thin glass. Almost as thin as a bud vase. Has a lot of bubbles, some quite large. Does anyone have a time period when this was used? I am guessing that this was a mustard jar. Any help on the time period would be appreciated. Buster

Looks 1880s, 1890s to me.. one can Wiki Guldens like I just did and read this excerpt, which I found particularly pertinent:

" By 1883, Gulden's product line included 30 mustard varieties and other products, including olives, capers, cottonseed oil, catsup, and Warwickshire sauce. That year, he moved down the street into a six-story building. "

Thanks Warren and Charlie. I've seen crude glass before the abm pretty much eliminated the crudeness and bubbles, but am amazed that this thing was even used to ship the product in. How it survived in the creek all these years. Buster
