Hey folks,

I was wondering if anyone has any ideas as to the age or what these lids go to? I found them all in the same creek. The big one doesn't have any embossing, but there is a seem across the diameter. The chipped one has a pinkish tint and says "Pat. April 10 1900" on the inside. The small one says "Ball No. 10" and there appears to be a "93" on the outer rim.

The "big one" looks to me like it's almost certainly a footed wine glass/stemware that's missing the rest of it.

I'm not much of a wine drinker so I hadn't considered that as a possibility. Do the bases of wine glasses typically have a seam across the diameter?

Absolutely! A lot of non-premium stemware during the mid 1800's-1900's used 2-part bimal molds, especially when full machine-made automation became the standard. I've found broken stemware bases that look just like that while exploring riverbeds and dump sites.

Looking for a clear Beaver button lid if anyone has one.
