A New Discovery

Just in from Steve Hubbell
This appears to be embossed SAN FRANCISCO

Early base with traces of a iron pontil

A Patton & Sampson product ?

After some research this new discovery  is believed to be from M. Frisius & Co. out of San Francisco.  From the small amount of research that has been done it appears he was selling liquor from about 1857 to 1862 under that company name.  He was in business with another partner as far back as 1852 in San Francisco

Thanks Steve!
