Wow that's a great find! Your bottle must be one of the earliest bottles marked with "pop". (A quick search online suggests that its first recorded use was in 1812). Yours should date to the mid-19th century, I believe primitive bottles like this stopped being made in the 1870s or so.

Found this stoneware bottle (Broken) a few years ago. Not sure of age of it. Says "WALKER'S POP" on shoulder, very deeply indented. Anyone have info as when or where it may be from. Dug it up in Georgetown, View attachment 216881Maine.
When did POP term come into use ?
I would say it's a very early 1890s or could even be earlier than that the indention in the bottle I would think would be foregrip hold the bottle filled it up to drink it would be perfect for that give you a little grip do you know all in all I think the real neat bottle I'm so much enjoy seeing different things that I have never seen thanks for displaying it it's awesome

I would say 1840s to early 1850s. One of these sold for 70 bucks in 2015, but I think that's undervalued, even for 5 years ago. If you search ("walker's pop" antique bottle) without the parenthesis you can see a few examples that have sold at auction in the past. No info, though. The indent seems to be a manufacturing defect.

I've seen a much more common Pop Ginger beer stoneware bottle before called C.C. Haley California Pop from Maine, dated 1895 on Bottle & some with no dates. There is a Walker Ginger Beer Stoneware Bottle from Albany New York. LEON.
