Hi from an Upstate NY Bottle Digger

Hello, and thanks for adding me to this forum.
My name is Robin and I dig in a 150+ year old dump of the Camp Meeting Association where I’ve had a cottage for 35 years. I began just collecting interesting shapes and colors. I now have a collection of amber, green, and cobalt glass bottles along with the clear ones. As well, I have a small collection of ink bottles, finding three just this week. Here are some of what I've dug in the last couple days. Anyone know what the 12-sided, umbrella based bottle is? Ink bottle Is what I presumed. The other (round) ink bottle is only 1 3/4” high, so cute!
Thanks again for the add! I hope to learn a lot!
Edit: yes, there is an over supply of mustard jars in the photo! I bring them back because they make nice vases to give away with flower bouquets in.
