      13 oz seems odd. Very nice!

      iggy it is very odd. I believe it's the only 13 ounce bottle I have. Every once in a while I see a 13 ounce bottle for sale online.

      I found this on the 'Glass Bottle Marks' website, a possible solution.
      'W superimposed over B (or could be B superimposed over W)………..Uncertain. This mark seen on base of handblown, tooled-lip clear or sun-colored amethyst prescription bottles (probably dating c. 1900-1915), found in Hawaii. Possibly used by Western Bottle Manufacturing Company, Chicago, but no proof of this.'
