Hello,

I volunteer at our transfer station swap shop on Cape Cod and this bottle came in today. I thought it was cool so I grabbed it. It appears to have been blown in the mold with an applied top. Having trouble reading the lettering on the base: I can make out K01 or I. Has anyone seen a bottle like this before and can share any info? I will try to figure out the makers mark.

That is what is known as a Banjo bottle. They're figural pieces that were made with the intention to be a decoration and were often sold with metal wall hangers. Your example looks like it's embossed with "R44" on the base, which according to the Michael Polak Bottles ID book dates your bottle to the 1940's and identifies the manufacturer as Dell Glass. They are hand blown in mold bottles and look quite nice I think!

Thanks so much for the info! Your eyes are much better than mine. I cannot make out the number/letters on the base.
