Hi all. Picked up this early pontilled almost clear glass Turlingtons just days ago which is very crude with a thin flared lip.This bottle was found near London at Rochester in Kent (England)under some floor boards in an old chemist shop.
Here's some pictures. Kindest regards Wayne Wood.

Welcome Wayne,

Nice Turlington's, sir.

Here the
business is of no use. You've got to use the
method.

Turlingtons Balsam 1/2

This Turlington has no embossment on the sides and 1/2 embossed on the bottom.

Front/Back is embossed " TUR
LING
TONS
BALSAM "

The bottle stands 2 5/8", the diagonal mold seam stops on the shoulder.

I would appreciate any replies, in particular, comments that will ID it being American or English and age.01.jpg03.jpg04.jpg

The base mark and fount for same strongly suggests to me English. it's a later turlingtons, as it's not pontiled. But I'm no expert in English bottles.
