Early medicine bottle, found at a Pennsylvania farm. It is handblown glass, with an irregular fire polished pontil.

The bottle is 5 1/2" high, 2 1/4" at the base and1 3/4" at the top. It has bubbles and a big swirl - this is not a crack, but it is a swirl or texture within the glass. Both the bubbles and swirling are typical of handblown bottles of the era. There is a chip on the rim, as shown, and a white residue near the top. The bottle has been gently cleaned.

This kind of bottle was used by early druggists and patent medicines prior to the American Civil War.

This bottle has an even base and stands upright for use and display.
