It's hard to believe that this tall and elegant Early American Pattern or Pressed Glass decanter type bottle is actually a ketchup (or catsup, if you prefer), but it is! Made by the Tarentum Glass company of Pennsylvania beginning in 1896 - long before the advent of mass produced, bottled ketchup - this piece was part of an extended table service. The pattern has alternating diamond panels, a fluted or paneled neck with horizontal cuts, and a cut-shut bottom. It stands a stately 11 3/4" high to the top of the stopper, which we're not sure is original but it fits perfectly and has a pressed diamond pattern. The bottle has no chips, though is does have scratches on the lip and an internal bruise (cannot be felt from the outside) as pictured, and the stopper has some chips at the base. Overall, very nice condition for a piece of this age, and again, quite a rare find.
