Can anyone help withe type of bottle and approximate age please? I’ve attached a couple of pictures. There are no mold lines, probably a turn mold, bubbles in bottle from top to bottom all are thin and vertically elongated. The base has a very shallow push up. Bottle is 14” tall and has a bit of a lean. Dug obviously with nice iridescence. Thanks for any help

Thanks for the information. The dig is mixed goods from early 1700’s to present.

I dug one once in a red amber color. If I recall correctly, it had remains of an embossed lead cork wrapper or seal still adhering to the neck.

There are no mold lines, probably a turn mold, bubbles in bottle from top to bottom all are thin and vertically elongated.
I venture that the vertical elongation, and even the thinning of the bubbles, are artifacts of the glass gather stretching so much when blown into such a tall mold.

These things are really tough to date, they mostly were made in Europe so the age cutoffs for certain bottle-making techniques don't apply like they would in the United States. You can typically be confident that they fall somewhere into the late 19th century to early 20th century period, but it's very difficult to narrow it down beyond that.
