This is one of the things I picked up at the Pompton Lks NJ bottle show today. I believe it is a drinking glass. It has a razor sharp open pontil on the base. Definitely handmade. Loads of bubbles as well as character. No idea the age.

I had one like this, but mine was shorter and a little darker on the green. I dug it, and now I can not find that dang dump again. Memory is going south too....!!!!

From left to right Andrews. McKinney and Cummings. All are Philadelphia.

The one on the right is a Morse's Julep from Hyde Park, Pa. Hyde Park merges with Scranton in the late 1860's. It is now know as West Scranton. I have found quite a few references in the Scranton paper archives for Morse's Julep. All are from 1868. Found another article fro. 1958 where monera found one these bottles in a mine with fish oil for the mining lanterns.

That Morse's is sweet. I like that Andrews also. You should post a new thread about these. Not sure everyone will see them here, that's all. Very nice BrentC.
