Interesting piece. I used to live on Tasker St. There were lots of South Philly bottlers & liquor dealers before prohibition. I haven't seen this one before—excellent & unusual embossing tho. The base is strange, dunno what to tell you there. Definitely a keeper. Should purple up in sunlight if you wanna go that way with it.

Been awhile but here is the amber script beer I mentioned in response. These are hard to photograph but the embossing says Property of Free & Waag Steambottler’s New Haven Conn.

I’ve dug up a about 4 of these script embossed beers. The other 3 were clear and broken in pieces. This one is my only whole one and amber. All originating in CT. I took me 3 years to find it and post pics, so I hope she has dug up more info since then!

Glass Bottle Marks description of manufacturer:

90 percent of 1st year businesses fail. If this one went about four without advertisements it is a small miracle. I'd say it was leaning toward "scarce."
