    Help identifying this bottle

    Great comment. Always confusion about “whittling”. A glass blower told me a cold iron molds and hot glass produced steam which resulted in the whittled look. Anyone else heard this?

    I didn’t want to get too detailed about the “vrip, vrip, vrip” because I was worried you’d think I was strange but forgot we were all kids once! That sound.

    My brother and I would get bags of those WWII troops and have wars for hours. When we got older, we would put them on sticks and light them on fire then drip the burning melted plastic on fire ant beds! No we did not become psychopaths or torture pets, just hated fire ants.

    Some with this bottle please

    Should have said “As most bottles manufacture dates are not easily distinguishable from 1700’s thru early 1800’s,”

    For us, it’ll probably be context or association with other identifiable objects in a controlled dig. As most bottles are not easily distinguishable from 1700’s thru early 1800’s, we hope we can dig an associated privy. If we find one with layers of relics only associated with a specific time...

    TSP overnight soak

    I found it on Google. It’s a French absinthe manufacturer. Bottle had to be made between 1895 and 1910. The company opened the factory in 1895 and made until 1910 when it was banned.

    Here’s a close-up. I don’t know anything about old wine or other spirits bottles. Maybe someone can help out.

    TSP overnight soak

    These dug dirty ones are getting an overnight soak of tsp. First time trying this to see if it will get rid of the dirt and other crusties. Know it won’t cure sick glass but maybe will be a big improvement over how they came out of the ground.

    Half a Coke Bottle, $500?

    Ridiculous. Here is an ink that sold for over $5,000.00 in perfect condition. Mine was acquired for $800.00 because of the barely visible 1 mm open bubble, otherwise perfect condition. Would not have paid a penny for a partial example. This coke is not the same as “half a glass full”.

    Watermans ink with top

    Not listed in Covill but few 1900’s inks are. It is unusual and definitely a keeper. Never seen one like it.
