This is a half pint bottle produced sometime between the late 1800's to early 1900's. It is in excellent condition and the not so common type.

It is embossed with the Palmetto tree, sitting atop the crossed cannons, with the makers mark of the bottler...E.P. Jr and C.O. Stamped on the lower half of the back of the bottle. I grew up on my fathers family lands in Lee county S.C., a portion of which was some 500 acres in and along the Lynch's river swamp.

I found this bottle in 1980 when I was 16, buried in the mud along an old Tram rd running to an old "Landing Camp", where the people who worked for the Timber Companies lived when they first started to Mass cut the Virgin Cypress and Tupelo out of our Midland and low=country river swamps.

There is not a single chip or fracture anywhere inside or out of the bottle, top to bottom. Which is likely due to the fact that it was completely buried in and filled by, hard clay based river mud and perfectly preserved when I found it.

The only reason I did, is because a root from an oak tree had grown up under it and pushed it up out of ground just enough for me to notice a glint of something in a shaft of sunlight on the ground, when I walked by it. Otherwise I have no doubt it would still be right there today!
