"CMG object file no. 61.6.47" -- written in blue pen along top of each of four envelopes and along top of article.
The article, Japanese pop bottle, details the mold-blown, transparent green glass bottle that has two compartments, divided by short neck, where two inner projections prevent a marble (inserted in upper portion before mouth was formed) from dropping into lower part; this type of bottle was originally purposed for ramone-e, or "lemonade". One of these such soft drink bottles is in the Corning Museum of Glass collection, accession no. 61.6.47, and was a gift of Dorothy Blair.
