This little bottle has good color and if there is no mold seam on it and if it has a pontil, scar it constitutes a good buy at the noted price. The glass bottles are introduced early in the 17th century and become more common in the last half of the 17th century. Glass bottles were used to ship liquids to the colonies and then they were repurposed to be used to hold any imaginable liquid. Israel Cod'r (Pemaquid, Mass Bay colony Cod Fisherman)
