Applied mouth, L&W on smooth base. For whittle and color it would be hard to beat this one. As we’ve mentioned, there are believed to be at least 75 variants of these bottles, this is just another in a series. A nice one, too. This was probably made in the 1870’s in a transition period from black glass quarts to amber fifths. This is a bit of an odd shape with the fat neck and the body a little bulkier than some we’ve seen. The interior looks like it could use a touch of cleaning, it’s really hard to tell. We think it displays great just like it is. Condition is super, again, loaded with tiny whittle, crude top, lots to like here. Grades a safe 9.5.
