This bottle had over 520 views and 65 watchers before. Of an inch radiate that was discovered coming from the small potstone in the bottle. To see this you need a very good loop and can not be seen with the naked eye. All you glass people know about this can happen. If you look in picture # 9 of my previous listing, you dont see the radiate coming from the stone.This bottle is 9 ½ inches tall and 3 inches square. It has a sand chip type pontil on the bottom, a crude applied lip and dates from the 1840s. It is square with beveled corners. The bottle is a very nice medium to dark olive amber green overall with citron though-out. Its loaded with tiny seed bubbles and even has a nice streak of amber across the shoulder. It has the for-mentioned tiny 1/8. Of inch potstone with a very tiny less than a 1/16. Of an inch radiate curling from the glass bubble behind the potstone on the inside of the bottle.
This is shown in the extreme close up shot in my pictures of the potstone. Also the bottle has fairly weak embossing of the lettering from a weak mold. This early bottle is in excellent original condition with no cracks, chips or dings with some light scratches and weak embossing overall. The bottle has never been tumbled or cleaned and is in original condition.It could use an outer tumbling to make this bottle sparkle. Please look at all of my pictures as I attempted to photo this bottle in all kinds of indoor and outdoor light. E-bay only allows 12 pictures but I can send more pictures to show the fantastic color of this bottle per request. I mention and show everything for accuracy. This great colored and early Sarsaparilla from.
Will display well and would make an excellent addition to anyones Dr. Townsends or early pontil Sarsaparilla bottle collection. Please see SELLERS OTHER LISTINGS for other great items.
