These early taper top Roussels are getting harder to find for sale. This is one of the many variants. If you collect these and think you have it - check your mold. It comes with and without a star, with and without Dyottville, either Phila or Philada, and with cut down versus high molds (whew).
The top is applied and the bottom is iron pontiled (frosted ring but no residue). This is priced down because of a subtle cork pry bruise in the lip (no chips or roughness).
Embossed: E. ROUSSEL / PHILAD.A // DYOTTVILLE GLASS WORKS / R / PHILAD.A / THIS BOTTLE / IS NEVER SOLD
Height: 7 5/8"
Color: lighter cobalt blue
Condition: a dug bottle in it's natural state with spotty wear and patchy stain that could be polish cleaned. The only structural issue is a very subtle and thin cork pry flash in the top of the lip, no real harm but is there.
