I haven't been able to find out much of anything about this bottle. Does anyone recognize it and have information about it?

No, but that's a great looking mustard barrel.

I had a bottle like this, embossed lettering in French, it had a glass tip pontil mark. I would assume it is European made bottle, I dug it in a 1880 dump. European bottle makers seem to have used pontils later than American bottle makers. Check the Historic Bottle Website, it has quite a bit of information.
Bill Lindsey has done a great job of putting together a great old bottle identification site.

The HAMM'S mustard barrel apparently is American, not French, based on HunterTheFox59's research. The barrel form was widely used for mustard, and many clearly-French bottles were imported in the period around the TC20.

Interesting! Makes sense. I recognize the green barrel third from left, I had one, and the far right bottle is the one I was referring to.

The green barrel (3rd from left) almost certainly contained a meat-paste, anchovy paste and other meat pastes were popular in England in the late 1800s and TOC20. I am always on the lookout for variants of these little jars.

Found this listing in the 1876 Official Gazette of the United States Patent Office. Looks like they were out Boston.

Thanks for posting this. The Old Hermitage Bourbon and Rye Whiskeys (#s 430 and 431 on your list) were distilled about two blocks from my house. Unfortunately, the building are long gone and is now a subdivision...
