About perfect (a pinhead in size flake is off the outer edge of the lip). This is the short thin variant. Probably the best bottle in the entire auction!

6. “BIG / BILL / BEST / BITTERS” - (the reverse side is identical), (Ring/Ham, B-95), American, ca. 1890 - 1900, amber tapered form, 12”h, smooth base, tooled mouth.

An in making 3/8” by 1/4” chip off the side of the lip occurred when the lip was sheared. The ground lip bottles were most likely a special order from the glass house, possibly made in an attempt to eliminate the problem of the thin inward rolled lip most commonly seen on this bottle from chipping away and falling into the contents when the cork was removed. Oddly enough most all the painted examples have a ground lip.

 
14 $ 700
 

9. “BROWN’S CATALINA”, (Ring/Ham, page, 130), American, ca. 1865 - 1880, yellowish amber cannon, 11”h, smooth base, applied mouth.
