Hello All,

Maybe Horseradish?? I couldn't find anything online that looks exactly like it.
It's 8" tall and has eight sides.

No glass marks on bottle. Could this be late 1800's?? 8 5.jpg8 3.jpg8 2.jpg8 1.jpg

Looks to be an early machine made piece with the ejector ring mark on the base and seam on the lip. I'd estimate 1910's-1920's due to all the bubbles in the glass, an imperfection automatic bottle machines would improve upon later. Horseradish would be a fair guess as to it's contents, as would be pickled goods or thicker sauces. The mold seam on it is interesting with the body, neck, and (what appears to be) lip seams being all misaligned from one another- some sort of long obsolete automatic bottle manufacturing technique/quirk.

Yes,
the lip seam almost looks like a mistake but I wasn't sure if that was common for the time.
They must have made it on a Monday.
Thanks

We call them "transitional" bottles . Not fully automatic.
