I have yet to find one of these myself, but the glass bottle stopper would be an incredible find!! If you found a stopper today, it would probably be 80-100 years old. They are often pale blue, light green, aqua or clear in color.
In the second half of the century the glass stopper was preferred over the cork type, because they were better able to protect the contents of the bottle from moisture and oxygen. They were mass produced in the late 1800's to be used in condiments (such as the Lea and Perrins sauce bottle). Today, some perfume and decanter bottles still use the glass stopper.
