Antique Early 1700s Dutch English Black Glass Onion Bottle St. Augustine, FL
This unique specimen was discovered decades ago in Hospital Creek in St. It was submerged and preserved in the tidal mud and only revealed and consequently discovered after Hurricane Dora in'64. The tidal creek spans between Mission Nombre de Dios and the Sacred Acre and The Fountain of Youth Archeological Park. It is described as Black glass by collectors when it actually is a dark olive green. It measures 5 1/2" at the base diameter; 8" tall; 1 1/2 depth of the Pontil. It has an intact string lip and is slightly lopsided due to the hand-crafted blown glass craftmanship. Collectors refer to the surface as "Sea Washed", but it wasn't exposed on the sea floor like you find bottles associated with shipwrecks. It was protected in the anaerobic environment of the tidal marsh consequently preserving it to be admired by future generations of collectors.
