"Chateau Chalon" c. 1890

"Two of a Kind". Here are two "Chateau Chalon" French wine seal bottles. The one on the right was a Christmas present from my wife Anne. She found at a flea market in Paris. Yeah Anne! It is a typical light olive green glass colour for this period. The one on the left, was a gift from Frederique & Richard, is similar but is different. It is a darker, mid green colour and is a heavier bottle. Possibly coming from two different glass works. The seals appear to be identical with the only differences being - the seal on the left is extremely well stuck and has excellent definition, the seal on the right is more generous with a larger and more uniform outside lip.
