Midwestern Aquamarine Swirl and Club Bottles

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on November 22, 2019

These are three examples of aquamarine swirled bottles and one aquamarine club bottle.  All have twenty four molded ribs which were swirled to the left or right, probably made in Zanesville Ohio.  The difference between the two types is on the club bottle the lower sides are straight and the flat bottom is therefore wider.   They are all about eight inches high and made between 1820 and 1840 and were re-usable bar bottles.  We think the most outstanding example is 58A because of its rich color and quality of the glass.  Which is your favorite?  Let us know.

      We think 58A is all so the best. Both for color and shape.
