Star Spring Co Saratoga N. Y. Pint Mineral Water Bottle Scarce! Olive Amber
UP FOR SALE TODAY WE HAVE A PINT SARATOGA MINERAL WATER BOTTLE EMBOSSED STAR SPRING CO/(SMALL SIZED 5 POINTED STAR MONOGRAM)/SARATOGA N. This example has been flattened on the front and back sides, with two indentations on the shoulder above the embossing, to make what would seem to me to be a drinking flask for a smaller handed person. This bottle is olive amber in color, a very uncommon color for this bottle. Donald Tucker lists this bottle as S-54b in his guide to Saratoga type mineral waters, and describes this olive amber color as being rare for this bottle. While the color is pretty dark, this is a beautiful bottle in the right light, with moderate to heavy whittling to the glass. For a guide to color, my cover picture puts it in between an olive green Eagle Flask and an olive amber Farley's Ink master ink bottle(neither of which are currently for sale). In some light it looks mostly amber, but in other light it looks quite green. My last picture shows another look compared to the other bottles, with a Stoddard "smokey amber" Sheldon Spring bottle on the far left(also not currently up for sale).
