bottle (containers)

Oliver green glass bottle, dating to 1723. The body of the bottle is large and bulbous in the fashion of an onion bottle. There is a deep basel 'kick-up' and sand pontil scar on the underside of the bottle. The shoulders of the bottle are rounded and lead to a long tapering neck with a string rim. On the front of the bottle is a pronounced piece of glass containing the words 'John Wyatt Attorney'. Below this 'dated 1723' has been painted.
