    Ancient beer bottle with an image of a cat (?) on the bottom of 3/4” thick glass. Anyone a specialist in antique beer bottles?

      I have the same bottle but mine has a paper label from Glory Beverages of St. Louis which was a soda. Glory may have repurposed the bottle or someone simply stuck a label on an older bottle.
      Anyway, your bottle was made for E. & J. Burke, Ltd. (established 1849) out of Long Island City, N.Y. The bottle probably dates to the mid 1930's. I find an old newspaper ad from 1934 that is advertising for Burk's Ale. This ad shows the same cat that is embossed on the bottom of the bottle.
