Can anyone tell me what this bottle was when it was whole? I believe I have seen one like it but I can't remember what it was.
This is the only piece I found. Roy
I found this while I was looking for my logo. No idea if that helps

Hi Eneey, thanks.
From everything I found so far I'm thinking G.W. Kearns was the manufacturer. I may be wrong but at least I have a pretty good idea what the bottle was anyway .
As for the cathedral peppersauce I can't find a good picture of it before I started tumbling it but it was in roughly the same shape as yours , kinda all etched from being in the ground for many years. I took it out this morning but it has some areas that need a bit more work so I will put it back in tomorrow morning in a smaller canister for the final polish then I'll post a picture. It actually looks pretty good now but I won't be able to sleep if I don't get it looking the best I can... lol...

Oh good! Haha. I’m excited to see what it looks like and the process. I would be terrified. I think of a tumbler that I use to put my rocks in to make them clean and shiny but not a bottle!!

Eneey,
I know absolutely nothing about tumbling rocks, and very very little about tumbling bottles. I am just learning myself. It seems every bottle has it's own quirks and problem areas. For the peppersauce, it seems to be the neck that needs a bit more tumbling.
If you haven't already seen it go back about 4 pages on this forum and take a look at a post I did, ( Before and After Pictures ), with pictures of a Barry's Tricoperous bottle I tumbled. The glass was in very much the same shape as the
peppersauce I am tumbling now. Hopefully it comes out as good as the Barry's did...
