 Up for auction is a rare antique pressed glass bottle for containing Holy water.  This bottle is old and has a medicine bottle look.  It had gold painted letters and still has a gold painted debossed cross on the front.  On the back of the bottle are large letters that say IHS in stylized letters.   These glass letters and cross reade very well but the paint has worn from the "Holy Water" lettering.  The cross still has a lot of its original paint.   You can see the seam line for the mold on the side so this is pressed glass.  Measures 6 1/2" tall x 3" wide x 1 3/4" deep.  It can be cleaned up better than it is.  I used ammonia but I think there are better inside the bottle cleaners.

I looked up the letters IHS in Christian use and it is a Latin representation of the letters iota, eta, sigma, the first three letters of the name of Jesus in Greek.  No chips or cracks in the glass at all!

This is a very old vintage bottle with an unusual theme.  Expect to receive a great collectible bottle.

Thank you for looking!

SHIPPING: Please note that the shipping charge is just an estimate. The buyer should wait to receive an invoice for the full amount. I don't box up an item until it is sold so actual shipping is determined after the sale. I am usually pretty close though. Most items ship USPS Parcel Post. If it fits in a Small, Medium or Large Flat Rate Box you will get it faster but it usually costs more. If it is a breakable item, expect that I am going to ship it in a larger than normal box to accommodate double boxing. All of my feedback issues (3 so far) have been caused by postal shipper problems. I can't make the Post Office do a better job. Insurance is now always included in the handling fee. In most transactions I charge a $5.00 handling fee. This covers shipping materials, my time to box and the insurance. If insurance is more than $5.00 I will pay the difference. I am not out to make a profit on postage in any way. If the postage seems high on an item, wait until after the sale and email me how you would like it shipped. I just want to get you your item safe. I hate when all this work doesn't end up in a positive sale. SHIPPING DAMAGE: I pack my items very well and 99.9% of the time the Post Office delivers properly but I have seen cases where the boxes have been crushed and no amount of reasonable packing would have saved the item. If your item is damaged in shipping, I know it is very disappointing but know that you will receive a refund. All of my items are insured so it is only a matter of time. Please know that I am very accessible via email and will be on the situation fast. Breakage is an unfortunate possibility. Please email me and we will get your money back ASAP. The easiest/cost effective thing to do is file a claim. Hold onto the item and the original packing as the Post Office my need to inspect. I will quickly file a claim with the Post Office to get the item funds and shipping/handling back to you ASAP. Twice I have received a refund in under two days. Ebay allows the buyer to file an "item not as described" claim which requires the the buyer ship back the item at their expense to get their money back. If you choose to do this, by Ebay's rules you have to ship back the item in its original packaging and box so that I can file a claim. I don't give partial refunds as I can't get my money back from the insurance. Negative Feedback: I have this year been given negative feedback by upset buyers who blamed their damaged items on my packing. I cannot stress enough that I pack well and have shipped MANY large and small fragile items successfully. Please take a moment to read through my positive feedbacks (650!!!). Please don't just click on the negatives and make a judgement. Breakage happens and even though I offered full refunds sometimes you can't work through how upset people get. When they open that package and the item is damaged, they only see red and want to blame someone. Thank you for reading this. -Andrew

 Ok, I found out the debossed is the wrong word.  The cross design and letters are raised or in relief.  Thanks!
