These green, hand-blown glass bottles are surviving artifacts of the short-lived New England Glassworks company in Temple, New Hampshire. Charles Barrett Sr. was one of the proprietors of this local business in the 1780s. The bottles are a few of several objects on view in the Barrett House in New Ipswich, New Hampshire that reflect the varied manufacturing businesses in the local area in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
