One of my most awesome finds from early Spring. This is a black glass, three-piece mold, pontiled bottle I probed at a one of my farm dumps. It has the word "PATENT" embossed on the shoulder and something embossed around the perimeter of the base (case wear makes the base wording hard to decipher) I found this bottle along with a Congress Springs and Hanbury Smith mineral waters. Needless to say it was my best day. Both of the Congress Springs and Hanbury Smith have some damage but are intact.

The bottle appears to be a Ricketts patent 3-piece mold bottle.

Below is a somewhat earlier English bottle made in a similar mold, probably licensed from Ricketts, with the manufacturer's name on the base. Many "Ricketts bottles" are similarly marked with the Ricketts information.
