A clear pix of the top of the bottle is the most helpful in IDing the date if it. How far up the neck the mold lines go is the big determiner of its age. Do some basis research on dating bottles if the mold lines DO NOT go all the way up. If they DO, it would be fairly modern and, most likely, be appreciated just cuz it's so pretty. I don't see any writing molded into the bottom, is that right?
Thanks so much for the reply Deb. The mold line stops at the base of the straight neck. It does not go to the top, so maybe I will check in to it. You are correct, no writing or markings at all on the bottle. Just that design on the glass that made this piece interesting to me.
what is the size on this? Could be a perfume that is missing the stopper or a decanter - also missing the stopper - depending on size. To ornate to be for a medicine, etc.
It's 10" high and 14" around the widest point. It looks to me like some liquor bottle
I would also guess liquor. Does it have scratches in the mouth that might indicate a stopper was put in and out? The pattern around the sides is often called an "Almond" design in Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG).
it does have some wear to the inside at the top. I'm checking on some old bottle sites right now and going to look more into that älmond" design. I really appreciate your info.
I collected old Miami milks for years and seen a few bottles similar to yours that the milk bottle company would sell some fruit flavored stuff in it ,,,it looks to be from the 40, to 50s with that mouth ,,
usually there's two numbers stamped either the bottom or bottom side those two numbers are usually the year the bottle was made ,,sorry I could be more help ,I believe its worth anywhere from 20 to 30 dollars depending on nicks ,cracks.. Dino in sunny Miami.
