I first found this bottle as a much bigger amethyst bottle. Unfortunately in pieces or missing it’s neck. I found 2 or 3 like that and wished I could fine one. I just recently did but mines a smaller aqua version. Still very cool. I can’t find any of this color online. I did find a amber version but the site offered little information on it other then letting me know it was a beer bottle and came in a bunch of different sizes and colors. If you have any info on it’s rarity, what it’s date was etc.... I would appreciate it. Thanks!

ps. I know it’s hard to see I tried taking it in different lighting but it didn’t come out great although the bottle looks great in person and easily legible.

Nice bottle!! Here's a little history on the company:

That helped a lot. Looks like I can assume the bottle is after 1899 because it said in 1899 they started sending out bigger sized beer and other drinks to Maryland and other states. So it’s safe to assume the bottle is probably somewhere between 1899 and the prohibition area right? Then again before they shipped it to Maryland they had a company that sold in Delaware which is like 15 minutes up the street from where I found the bottle so I wonder if it was possible for someone to have bought it there and brought it back hmmmm. Guess I have to look at the alcohol laws back then.

Nice detective work!
today I found another broken one of the big ones I can only dream of finding. I took it home and washed it to show you guys how beautiful it is.
