From the standpoint of most collectors of antique bottles, the name and location of the company the bottle was made for, and the name of the product that was originally contained in the bottle (one or both of which may be embossed on the bottle) is often considered to be of more interest or importance than the glass factory where the bottle was actually manufactured.

It is marked "W&Co, NY", Dark amber in colour, pontilled base.There are four variants of this jar, but none of the quart and larger sell for over typically and possibly less without the lid.
