have found the patent for it
oh but as for the pricing.. you may get lucky here.. but as you say.. don't get your hopes up.
The difference is those two bottles listed on ebay appear to be mass produced by machine from what I can tell.. and they are clear, plain glass except
for the print on them.. nothing special...
Richard, Your bottle is typically called a Pineapple bitters, There are three varieties of this bottle with yours being the most common.
Common in this case does not imply little value. the bottle in perfect condition in amber sells these days for $400-500. The same bottle comes in
aqua, topaz, blue green, yellow loive and olive green all of which sell for much more than the amber ones. Very little is known about the history of
these bottles. One pineapple bottle, smooth based is known with a label for Brown's Iron Bitters. Digger
but that is not the same bottle as yours.. just similar..
