The bottle has not been messed with/ cleaned in any way & the Lockport/ dark green colour depicted is accurate. There are no olive or amber tones at all in the glass.
(Photos were taken outside in natural light - sorry about the reflection) Ive collected early food bottles, cures, hamilton patents & goldfield era food bottles for years but im sorting out some doubles I have over 20 17. (ShovelandProbe website coming out soon). It is in VERY NEAR MINT condition - some faint scratches on the SARSAPARILLA panel for accuracy but they dont detract at all. Overall a great example with great crudity & colour.
No dings, cracks or any other defects. All bottles are bubble-wrapped & boxed for piece of mind - ive never had a breakage, & my feedback hopefully speaks for itself.I collect: early hamiltons, food bottles, hair bottles, food bottles, Hartwig Kantorowicz variations, Dr Townsend variants, sealed cognacs, liqueurs, embossed black glass.
