Clear pressed glass "boat style" baby bottle with rubber? nipple. It is shaped so that it rests on one side. It has only a remnant of its rubber nipple now. It has embossed (molded) calibrations (ounces?) or gradation marks. The bottom end has "FF&W" embossed in its molding. The neck of the bottle angles up to where the nipple attaches.

The last owner, Hazel Inglis (neé Craig), reported that this baby dress was worn by her husband, Victor Inglis, of Inglis Falls, as a baby (c. 1882).
Mr. Inglis lived for many years at "Inglis Falls", Derby Township, Grey County.
What glassmaker used the mark "FF&W" Was it an American or British company??? Is it a late 19th-century item??
There was a Franklin Flint Glass Works (American). However the mark is definitely an ampersand, not at G, so this is likely not the same company.
