    Yellowish olive-amber glass, height 7 1/4", C-2-B type 1 in Tucker's Saratoga book, pint size, pontiled base with mold seam that crosses base, applied sloping double collar mouth, very crude with lots of bubbles, has been professionally cleaned to excellent condition but still retains some light case wear, no repairs and no damage, circa 1811-1846.
    According to McKearin's American Bottles book pages 234-235, LYNCH & CLARKE was the very first Saratoga springs water bottles. The company was founded in 1811 by Thomas Lynch and Dr John Clarke. Lynch later died in 1833, and Clarke died in 1846, after which Clarke's heirs changed the name to CLARKE & COMPANY.
    A bottle with my last name "Lynch" on it, so it's a keeper till I find a duplicate.
