    Tiny bottle

    Hello All,

    Seems like it’s just the tiny ones that escape the plow down here. Any idea what this bottle once was, or a date range for it? I’d like to get more into pit digging but the conditions have to be perfect down here in Louisiana due to the water table being so high.

    Cool little bottle! Just a guess, but it looks like a mecurochrome bottle. Would have had a stopper with a glass wand (applicator). I think it was sold from the 1800's to mid 1900's?

    I saw a few on the Net with that distinctive "double ring" neck called "ball neck" or "ball neck extract" bottles. Earlier ones were embossed on one side. The other side flat to apply a label.

    This one is 5 inches tall. Embossed SAUER'S EXTRACT.

    I'm not much of a glass guy. Hopefully someone with more knowledge and experience will chime in with additional info.

    It's a perfume bottle. I found one almost exactly like that about 45 years ago. It still had perfume in it. I called it "Essence of an April snow storm" as it was snowing when I dug it. I still have the bottle, but the perfume has evaporated from it.

    Perfume makes sense as it’s too small for an extract bottle. Any idea on time frame?

    Buck it's hard to tell what age it could be from the photos.

    The seam line will help, also the photo of the base looks like it's an off set swirl/rough pontil scar. If so the little bottle could be from the 1850 era or earlier.

    I’d say that this bottle dates to the 1900-20s. It has a purple tint to it?

    Are you saying because it has a purple tint that it's from 1900-20s?
    Or is a query if has a purple tint to it?

    What a beautiful little bottle find Buck.
    Based on the mold process for how it was made, I'm thinking 1860s as well.

    Agree a perfume from 1860 to 1890. Definitly BIM so not from 10s or 20s.

    BIM is an abbreviation for "blown in mold" which is older than ABM which stands for automatic bottle machine. The ABM are obvious due to the seam going over the lip, all done in ONE process by a machine. BIM are mouth blown and generally completed by means of a lipping tool which works the neck and finished lip while the glass is still hot. This transition was about 1903 but many bottle makers still did it the old way for some time after.
