Picked these up a few days ago. I believe they are good and may have been tumbled but I am no bottle expert. What interests me is the aqua one. Approx measurements 6 3/4 T 5 1/2 base 3 1/2 shaft. Any thoughts are appreciated. The other two are also neat but not this color. One may be transitional and the other is smaller.

I can't recall one in that color. The Low Country/German/Dutch onions tend to range from yellow-amber to grass green. The color of your bottle reminds me of glass from the South of France. Van den Bossche figures one he calls English (Plate 13, Page 73). He describes it, "Unusual bottle color."

Sorry to pester you but is there a way to verify that it is not a reproduction? There was a total of six bottles. This was the only one of this color. The others five looked like this one but in a few different sizes.
