Wine Bottle

C. Early 1700s

Two whole "squat" wine bottles and 56 base and body shards, collectively representing at least one more vessel, have been recovered from 31CR314. All of these specimens represent hand-blown, dark green/olive glass bottles, English origin and dating to the first quarter of the 18th century. The overall shape of the two whole bottles dates to 1708 on the Williamsburg bottle chronology developed by Noel Hume. During this period wine bottle exhibited a "body sagging down on itself and the base spreading, a profile ungallantly known... as the "Queen Anne shape".
