    Vineland Grape Juice

    I think I must've seen that purple one but it didn't register with me because of the color. I'm not a big fan of those irradiated bottles. I like what the sun does much better. Thanks for the post. I'll have to look at photos more closely in the future.

    Vineland Grape Juice

    This bottle is only five inches tall. Embossed on it is Vineland Grape Juice, and the seam stops well below the neck. There's no mention of Welch's on it, but I think this might be a very early one because Welch lived in Vineland, NJ. I haven't been able to find another one like it online. It's...

    Myopia Club Beverge Co, Islington Mass

    Here's what I found on Wikipedia. There isn't a mention of a bottling company, but I'm thinking they must've been behind it. "The Myopia Club, regarded by some historians as being the oldest country club, was founded in the 1870s by four brothers with poor vision: Gordon, Charles, Morton, and...

    It's a crown top. Such an unusual bottle!

    The Arlington Bottling Co, Chas Jacobsen Prop, Washington D.C.

    This was one of a bunch of bottles that I bought from a crate of bottles that were all pulled from the water. I only paid $2 for it. The Arlington Bottling Company was founded in 1884, and I'm thinking that this might be from right around that time. The seam stops at the bottom of the neck, and...

    Myopia Club Beverge Co, Islington Mass

    I found this in a crate full of bottles that had just been pulled from the river. They were covered with barnacles and filled with sand and water. I picked this one because I didn't recognize it, and it looked Art Deco. I love it. It cleaned up pretty nicely, just some little flea bites on it...

    Need info about Purity Excellence SBCO

    This was recently found in the river. After a good cleaning, I found that the seam stops at the neck. I've seen the phrase Purity Excellence used on other bottles, but I can't find one that looks like this. Anyone have any info on this bottle? Thanks!

    Psychology of collecting

    My collecting started in the early 1970s when my father gave me a slick medicine bottle he found in the basement of a friend's pharmacy that was about to close down. It was the connection to the past that I felt & loved immediately. My bottle collecting started up again when I was out walking...

    Bottles pulled from a river decades ago

    A friend of mine gave me a bag of beautiful old bottles yesterday. The "Edward Gorman 597 First Ave Brooklyn NY" is one I can't find any info on. Other bottles are a Pabst, a Noah's Liniment Best Pain Remedy, and a Mexican Mustang Liniment that contained turpentine, kerosine, and ammonia!

    Thanks! I haven't been able to find another one like it on the internet, so all info is appreciated. :)

    Clear glass, screw top, Owens Illinois

    Anybody recognize this one? I'd appreciate some help on the year, too. I recently found a large number of bottles in the same area, and they ranged from around 1910 to the 1970's.
