Still working on updates for the other pages, if your interested in bottles or insulators and not sure what's for sale please ask.Much continues to happen with in this great hobby of ours and many new and interesting finds continue to turn up. (The oval plate covering the engraving is clearly evident in real life on the bottle but only vaguely visible in the enlarged image to the right.) This example is a light to medium golden amber with a beautiful brilliance to the glass.
Please, no soda commemoratives or painted label sodas.

(If problems occur with the finished product, it can be easily ascertained which mold or mold section is at fault.) Numbers also serve other purposes, depending on the exact container and/or company being discussed. Some numbers (for instance, 3- or 4-digit numbers on the base of many British bottles) are catalog, inventory, style or design numbers assigned to a particular bottle shape.
Those numbers would serve to identify a particular bottle style, such as in communications/orders between the glass manufacturer and their customers ……is, the companies who ordered the bottles to package their products.
In these cases, the general style, shape, glass color and other characteristics can at least help narrow down the possible age range of a particular specimen.
