Beautiful Black Glass "PATENT" 1860s Applied Lip Ale Bottle
This is a really pretty, dark olive green PATENT ale bottle that stands 11 1/2 inches tall. The front shoulder is embossed "Patent" in ceraph letters. This bottle was hand blown in mold, and has an early smooth base, and an applied tapered lip that has a slight, but smooth, notch (see photo). This bottle is sparkling clean, with no cracks or bruises.
