This hand blown bottle measures 21" in height and is 40 1/2" in girth. The neck is 5" from body to bottom of lip. The lip 1 1/8" in height. The neck is 3 1/2 inches wide at bottom and 1 1/2" wide at bottom of lip. The lip is 2" wide at the bottom and 1 1/2" wide at top. The base is 5 1/2" across and angles up to 7 1/2" wide at w the body starts.

The bottle has several mold seams that divide it into 4 panels. The vertical seam stops at the base of the neck. The horizontal seam varies from 8 to 8 5/8' up from the bottom. The highest in the front, as the bottle has a front to back tilt.

The bottom of the bottle has a large rough pontil that measures 2" across. WARNING; you can get cut by running you fingers across this area as well as across some mold imperfection areas and the chip area on the top lip.

The top lip has a 1/2" chip off of the rear right top edge ( see pictures).

From everything I have read, this bottle indicates that it was made before 1850. I am not a professional at this so I have tried to get good enough pictures and provide measurements and discription that will help you to date it.

The green glass has alot of imperfections, and bubbles. The rear top panel execptionally grainy as compaired to the other 3 panels.

I am afraid to clean or try to wash it. It has several various coin size whitish spots that appear to be on the inside. One of these can be seen on the lower left center of the 1st. picture.

In the center of the front top panel t's an empressed marking that measures 3" across and 2 1/4" in height. I can not make out what it is (see picture 2)
