Circa 1855 Mauch Chunk Pontiled Soda - J. Mc M. - Union Glass Works

I've never seen this bottle before in person, and I'm not sure how many exist.. I dug it with "The Privy Diggers" and it came out of a mixed clay layer so it's in terrific condition. Never tumble cleaned, just rinsed out, so natural patina. The pontil is somewhat weak but clear in person. The slug plate is pretty crude, and the strike is exceptional, likely a fresh mold or few made. T he top is a hand applied tapered blob.

Embossed: J. Mc. M. / MAUCH CHUNK // UNION GLASS WORKS / PHILAD.

Height:  7 3/4 "

Condition: excellent - - structurally perfect with zero damage, hardly any wear, and a light patche of dirt/haze inside and maybe a trace light scratch, all mentioned for accuracy. Would tumble mint but why would you?
