The 1846 embossed on the bottom of this bottle does not indicate the date of the bottle itself. Although it was the founding year of the Pond’s Company, the date was added to the glass a bit later in Pond’s history. The aqua colored bottle measures 7-3/8 inches and has a molded cork top. Embossed on the length of the bottle is “Pond’s Extract.” Believed dated 1920-1930. Considered in excellent condition with just two tiny nicks along the edges of the side shoulders. Compounded with a mixture of alcohol, water and witch hazel, it was touted as a general cure-all.
The two smaller bottles were found embedded in a small creek on our farm many years ago. Small pale aqua bottle is an old medicine flask also with a molded cork top. It has fading side mold seams which disappear at the shoulders. Dated about 1915 to early 1920s. Common flattened oval shape for that period with a sheared top. Tiny worn nicks around the lip. Measures 5-inches tall; 2-1/4" across the bottom.
The third is a clear glass bottle for syrup or elixer. It is embossed Duraglass on the bottom with dosage measurement marks down one side and has a much later screw-type opening. Measures 4-inches tall and 1-3/4 wide. The two smaller ones are also in very good condition and need a bit more cleaning inside. Price is for all three.
