This is a pair of American art glass white satin barber bottles with the original stoppers. The glassmaker is unknown. The date is circa 1880.
Each bottle is 9 ½” high to the top of the stopper and 6” wide.
Each bottle has large dahlia flowers painted in shades of brown and yellow, with touches of raised yellow enamel, and with green leaves; the flowers are painted on the belly of each bottle and a smaller version on the stopper.
The stoppers are hollow with a snapped off pontil at the pointed end. The rims of the bottles are round. The shape is one of a round lower belly with a long slender neck. The bottom of each bottle has an indented snapped off pontil.
One bottle has a dark line in the lower neck that can be felt, and I point to it in a photo; the line appears to have been in the glass for a long time. The other bottle has a glob of something on it, and I point to it in another photo. There are no chips or nicks. The bottoms show scratches and age wear.
