    Montreal B & G Co

    Here’s a link to an auction for another Montreal Bottle & Glass Co. beer bottle. I have no idea if this bottle is earlier or later than mine. I also have no connection to the auction and only post the link as there seem to be very few bottles from this manufacturer out there...

    Montreal B & G Co

    Thank you! Great information. I just found this, at If correct, this company was gone the year after it was incorporated.

    Montreal B & G Co

    Any ideas when this dark green, molded bottle might date to? From its shape I’m guessing it’s a beer bottle from the mid to late 1800’s. It’s marked Montreal B & G Co on the bottom, a manufacturer I’ve not run into before.

    Labatt’s India Pale Ale

    I’m hoping someone might help me figure out a date for this Labatt’s India Pale Ale bottle. I’ve read up on Dominion Glass’s date codes but, frankly, the more I research these the more confused I get! My guess is the bottle dates to the Second World War but it would be nice to have a month and year.

    Help needed re identification & dating

    When stationed in the Canal Zone in Panama I would dig lots of these bottles. They are what I was told done in a "Turn Mold". Thank you, Old Man Digger. I wondered if it might be a turn mold bottle but understood that there should be faint, concentric rings visible if it was, and I can’t see...

    Help needed re identification & dating

    I’ve just spent about an hour at the Society for Historical Archaeology’s bottle dating website and am now more confused about this bottle than when I started! So, if anyone will help me identify this bottle, I would be very grateful. This is a green glass bottle, about 10” tall. I can see no...

    Help needed re "Vacuum" marked jar

    Can anyone tell me anything about this jar? It's embossed with the word "Vacuum" and has an unusual rim. I was told that this jar was made in Toronto in the 1920's but have no idea if this is correct or not, as my research has led nowhere. Thanks!

    RD BD 1912?

    I have a bottle that I've been unable to identify, and am hoping somebody might be able to help. As you'll see, it's a tall, thin bottle, with a small RD, large BD and small 1912 embossed on the front. If anyone recognizes what the bottle is, please let me know!

    Help needed with Javex bottle

    I know Javex bottles are, generally, very common and, for many collectors, uninteresting. Nevertheless, I have a Javex bottle that I’ve been unable to identify. I’ve searched but haven’t found a match for it, with its unusual handle. I’m sure the members here are likely familiar with it, though...

    Penetang Bottling co - acl soda bottle Penetang Ont

    Here's something discovered just today at a yard sale near Wasaga Beach, Ontario. Note the piece of masking tape on the bottom with "1938" written on it. I presume somebody thought this was the year the bottle was made?

    My smallest bottle yet! Kidney-Liver Pills

    Thanks for the replies. I didn't realize that there would have been three pills, originally, and yes, I do believe it's Canadian as it was found here in Ontario. As for the label, I'll carefully try the baking soda paste suggestion. Will let you know how it goes!
