The Clevenger Brothers glass-blowing factory was established in 1929. They used authentic early 18th century style American glass. The original formula came from the Moore Brothers Glass Works, c1880, and allowed the shade of color to vary from batch to batch. Examples of impurities of yesteryear including bubbles, batch stone and cord can still be seen in some examples. The Clevenger factory closed in 1999.

We have a few of these bottles remaining in stock, available for sale for $20 each + $10 shipping.
