When I see these Burnt Brown jars advertized, I always take the term Burnt Brown as a description of condition. Note that there is no mention of the jar as being old. Also, the sold as is with no return should make anyone take a long second look, even if they are expecting a new jar.

Yes there were clear 1915 Cokes with the cities embossed on the bases. Here is a clear SCA from the Laurens Glass Works that is embossed Swainsboro, Ga. I have found several 1915 clear hobbleskirts , but most were broken.

Another view in sunlight. This bottle has a slight amethyst tint. It was found on the top of a dump that was covered by trees.

The colors of the 1915 hobbleskirts vary from clear to coke green, and there is also the ones with the aqua/bluish tint.

I have identified three different glass manufactures of the 1915 hobbleskirt.

There are also those extra thick base 1915 hobbleskirts, like this Chatt.

Thanks Cap, Just lucky to be living in that Cola belt. You would think that there would be a lot of the 1915's and 1923's around, but the majority that made it to the dumps were probably damaged when they were tossed. Do you remember as a kid , picking up every soda you could find for the deposit? Get out that Radio Flyer little red wagon and go up and down those dirt roads till you filled it up. Back then every bottle was cash. The ones that the store owner wouldn't buy usually met a terrible fate. BB gun, sling shot, etc.
