Nothing beats the odds like four of a kind!
Around the mid-1880s a revival was made to bring back the once popular 3 piece bottles, so popular back in the ealier 1810s. So the 3-press mold gave nearly the same appearance and the moon shiners and customers loved it. See back than they re-used bottles, not like today and with the industrial age beginning to reeve up demand was high, but soon wane. These are examples of that era and most likely were being used in the many cat houses for those party times. They also made for great ballast for the clipper ships...
Some totally cool trapped air bubbles too. Seems those kilns in the early mornings weren't all the best till mid noon for heating the yesterday’s cooled down glass. Historically long ago the mornings were always when most glass was pocketed by air bubbles.
...and did they know how to form the most creative ones.

A little about me;
I've traveled millions of logged road miles and have in decades visited nearly thousands of antique stores in North America beginning since the early 1970s. Before this I was actively learning items of antiquity.
I begin coding in the '70s with C++ and have never left learning programming, though I’m a novice in the many different languages. I’ve spent an untold amount of time discovering what in time others have created online and my knowledge spans generations.
But never am I fully learned and always will be studious in such, since the so many others make mountains of new knowledge.
Ⅰ - Recovery in Alaska's Deep Ocean Channel Waters.
Ⅱ - Glass and other items recovered have been cleaned of most ocean artifacts, unless otherwise stated.
They have been stored for well over 20+ years and never polished.
Measurements may not be exact and can be slightly off from what is given.
Any imperfection or flecks associated or not with manufacturing is stated 'as-is.'
Reference numbers Ⅲ thru Ⅶ will be noted if remarkable and obvious, though use may not hold completely true.
Ⅲ - Antiquity (100+ years) glass may have been affected by differentiation in conditions (electrolysis of glass impurities) of the area they were later discovered in. Possibly show etching due to time and dissimilarity with its surroundings. Might actually give 'character' to the glass, nature's way of creating art and not just a bottle found in like new condition on some self. Or newly manufactured meant to disguise itself as an older antiquity/vintage bottle.
Ⅳ - Some sea crustaceans have been allowed to stay on glass.
Ⅴ - Bottle has original glass forming entrapped air bubbles, which have broken on surface.
Ⅵ - May have as will be noted, minor chip(s) or flea bites.
Flea Bite: an item with a minute chip or crack as small as a flea bite. Usually can be found on the bottom of the item or its rim, may not even be seen unless looking through a magnifying glass.
Ⅶ - Bottle or glass item is in near original condition as found. May contain fluids or rust/dirt spots, corks etc...
Ⅷ - *Other then Alaskan Recovered Glass*
Not from Alaska waters and is either bought or discovered in lower 48 State digs.
The absolute difference is location and the by far lesser risks to acquire.
Ⅸ - *Canadian Dive Glass *
