Notes:
I've seen some instances where a bottling business seems to have been taken over by a wife (presumably due to the death of a husband), but this is a rare case where it appears that the business was owned by a woman from the start.

This is very similar to the bottle above, but the embossing is slightly different, and it has a 10-sided base instead of a round base. It's a 7.2" aqua hutch, embossed:
