    Early nyc beverage bottles

    All Brooklyn blobs. I stopped buying late blobs from other boroughs for lack of space but I keep any blobs I find - my bottles come from the ocean. By saying I have most of them I meant I have 4 out of 7 in the picture, not most of the NYC blobs - that would be an insane number of bottles to...

    Early nyc beverage bottles

    Bottles_inc, sorry for a belated response. No, I haven't seen M. B. & Co in green. I believe I only saw it in aqua with a regular top. I'm not sure what M. B. stands for, the only name that comes to mind is M. Batelle but they were in Brooklyn. Another company listed at 145 W 35 st is Walsh &...

    Early nyc beverage bottles

    Love those! I collect NYC blobs, have most of them but I haven't seen John Cab (?), neither with sideways embossing nor the one which says 1848. What is the embossing on these two? Thank you!

    Selling Collection Need Help Pricing

    Anyone is welcome to correct me if I'm wrong: the 4 bottles on the first picture are around $10 each. With that said, I have Broe and Gorman but I'd like to add Gubner to my New York collection. Let me know please

    Bitters & others in different colors.

    Leon, I used to have 1/2" plexiglass shelves but they all sagged in the middle after only a couple of years and each shelf held no more than 15 bottles. I thought I made a mistake and should have opted for 1" but the guy who cut those for me said the result would have been the same, maybe less...

    curious shard

    Marty, some spots off Long Island are littered with bottles, and over the years I found quite a few sodas, beers, meds, flasks etc., so just to limit myself to square ones, here are two bottles that were found a few years ago in close proximity to the spot where I found the shard yesterday: a 7"...

    curious shard

    Hi Marty, Yes, I'm in New York. My bottles come from the ocean and I know this spot is old - I pulled a lot of cool bottles out of there. The bottle does look German (or Dutch?), I'm hoping someone saw one before.

    curious shard

    Hello, Well, I found a couple of criers today as well. The first was a bottom part of a blue pony bottle. Beautiful color. And the came this: a square bottle with weak embossing on one of the two remaining sides as follows: ...EKER ...TENDORF (or ...TENDORP?) ...RINGEN Has anyone came...

    Schomburg & Co

    Thank you, I especially like the way it feels in the hand. it does look very similar to Gilka. Search for Gilka produced a lot of pictures but nothing for Schomburg. I guess less successful means fewer bottles.

    Schomburg & Co

    Hello everyone, Whoever went to Baltimore Bottle show yesterday, I hope you enjoyed it. It was nice to chat with some of you and find a few nice bottles for my NYC collection. This piece was found in a box under a table and for a few bucks I couldn't miss it. Never saw this one and a quick...

    Just an idea - a Stilton cheese container.

    Pure Newfoundland cod liver oil

    Hello, Pulled this shard from the ocean yesterday. Had embossing on sides as well, smooth base. How unlucky was I? Was it common?
