Item PM368, OLD DR / J. TOWNSENDS – SARSAPARILLA – NEW YORK, light blue, Iron Pontil, 9 ¼” high, bold embossing, tapered applied top, has thousands of tiny to medium size bubbles in the glass, has what appears to be a tiny (1/8”) bruise just under the surface of the glass on the outside edge of the lip. This is shown in the last picture.  What a sparkling beautiful bottle this is! Over the years we have seen a few of these in this pretty blue color, but they have all been dug and cleaned and are not very good looking. This one is gorgeous, circa 1850, On Hold
