couple round bottoms or torpedoes or whatever they are called. The one on the right embossed with VINCENT HATHAWAY & CO. BOSTON on one side and GINGER ALE on other. There is a round seam around the bottom, lip (no expertise here) , pretty hefty - would make a good billy club.
The torpedo shaped one Has no embossing but it has a mark near the point at the bottom that looks like a capitol K, has some wavy glass at bottom of lip that makes me think it was applied (?) Any info would be appreciated as always.

Interesting 1860s or 70s American ginger ale bottles modeled after the popular British style.
