I'm the same, only in my dreams would I ever FIND anything like I sell. I have to buy and sell everything, and that is the unfortunate bit - having to sell even the very nice bits. BUT at least I CAN buy some of these things in knowing that I will get that money back, and I can therefore enjoy some amazing things for a few weeks atleast, and maybe longer.... www.earlyglass.comBass Assassin said:Very nice early glass everyone...jeez... Only in dreans will i ever find anything like this.
What a great lip on that black bottle, antlerman! Roger Dumbrell ("Understanding Antique Wine Bottles") would call that a "tall cylinder." I think your dating is about right.That's a beauty! ill throw my own early early glass up. its what I believe to be a 1790-1810 very late mallet form. I know its early because of the crude lip and base. correct me if im wrong on the date, but I think I am pretty spot on (theres the german in me). it loses a lot of crudity in those pictures. It is actually really uneven and stuff
