    Today was a great day at thrift Store shopping I found so much stuff I especially like these two 15 1/2 inch tall glass bottles I don’t know anything about it not even sure if they’re antique they just seem old And there’s no damage the tops are shape that way. Thanks Looking forward to what you think 6B500974-B91C-46D9-B0A3-4BD7E19AC5B8.jpeg E514E1B4-CCAE-4DF3-B84D-7CB993A01087.jpeg A91A9E22-C286-4803-BFB8-C3823B5EE565.jpeg

    Maybe look at Creative Coop. I saw similar (but Smaller) made by them for Michaels Stores.

    There should be two seam lines, 180 degrees apart. The coating makes me think it is very new. Notice how it seems to have flaked off at the neck of the bottle. Although, I have seen that color on antique bottles, they usually have a white mineral coating also. The mold lines will tell it all and it really does not look like a real pontil bottom. Old pontils often have a rusty area where the iron/steel pontil leaves residue.

    They both have the seam lines

    Where the seam lines end is the clue to how old the bottles are. Do the seam limes go all of the way to the top? Then they are new.

    I am happy to say the seams do not go all the way to the top

    Then they are basically new.

    So, no matter how far the seams run, the bottles are new?

    Sorry, I mistyped. Please take a picture of the seam and the applied lip of one of the bottles. my guess is that the seam ends at the bottom of the neck or the top of the large diameter.

    You have a unique coloring on the bottles. I wonder if they were recovered from a ship wreck.
