hey Fred, that is a beautiful iron pontil. There are many M embossed iron pontil mineral water bottles. Most have the name of the maker on them. I dont think you want us to guess. I would without a doubt say it is an unknown maker. Unless the maker was named Mineral Water. Lol! Sorry i couldn't be more help.

Great looking bottle with a helluva iron pontil mark. Might send pictures to Tod. There are a few "M"s listed as unknowns on his site, but I didn't see one like yours.

Very cool find. The lip looks like it was just added - love the look
I was thinking the same yacorie, the lip is so clean it doesnt look like it goes to the bottle. I am sure it does. Wonder is the chickens sat on the bottle to make it hatch?They are stupid birds.

LOL you guys.... It's my belief that the circa 1910's chicken coop was built on / over the privy (could not get permision to move, partly disassemble or remove floor boards of the chicken coop) I was allowed to scratch (ha- like a chicken) around back there and saw just a tiny crescent sliver of the lip of this bottle. I thought it was going to be just a tiny flake or piece of a lip, but lo... and behold! was able to manage a full extraction. Only intact item there (lots of various aged shards and bits of this and that, use you imagination) This lip is frequently seen on Baltimore bottles (which really threw me) Because I thought it might be a Morristown Mineral water bottle.
