It has side seams and no defining symbols. However, the glass has distinct bubbles within the jar and even in the ridges on the lip. While this might be a factory second, would it have any additional sale value? Thank you. Hi Deborah, Older bottles and jars often have bubbles in them. I would guess that most sometimes almost all glass containers made before have at least some bubbles in them.
This is a result of hand-made methods as well as the fast-paced production where there was less stringent quality control. Often the glassworkers did not wait for all the bubbles in the molten glass batch to rise to the surface and pop before they started blowing bottles from the pot or tank.
Some glass bottles and insulators are so full of bubbles the effect is amazing. Often there is a mix of sizes.
In general, to answer your question. If anything, they never detract from its value! It too has all kinds of bubbles throughout, however it has a seam around the neck just below the lip, and also vertical seams running down the body which indicate it was machine made.
The signs seem to be a bit conflicting on this because the machine would indicate a later date, but bubbles indicate an earlier date. Hi Andrew, Thanks for your posts! First of all, bubbles are common not only in handmade bottles, but also from the early days of ABM automatic bottle machine manufacture.
