    Westinghouse Refrigerator Pitcher

    Excellent looking pitcher, Rich! It reminds me of a 50s style glass and the powder blue glaze is an amazing color.

    Very true... I can't tell you how excited I was. I thought I struck it rich, lol.

    What kind of bottle is this..

    I'm pretty certain it's a common soda bottle.

Please smash the like button and subscribe as I am trying to build a following. I will be bringing many more videos in the future. I have...

    Beers, I think?

    I agree with the others. They are pre-pro beer bottles. More exact dates can be determined if it's machine made or tooled top.

    Uranium Glass

    Nice! My shaker needs a more aggressive cleaning approach, your's looks mint. It amazed me how heavy it was for such a small container. Unfortunately, mine does not have a base marking to trace the manufacturer. But, I must admit, both of our shakers look like cousins.

    D-126 Pat. 92901 Anchor Hocking Pint Bottle

    "Federal law prohibits..." statements on bottles lists them between '35 - '64. Although it has a pic of a factory and train on the cap, it didn't contain anything industrial (Ammonia and the like). I'm going out on a limb here, but it has me leaning toward a gin bottle.

    Uranium Glass

    Thanks Al. Uranium glass is what it sounds like, it has minuscule amounts of uranium to turn the glass that color (it glows in the dark when hit with a blacklight). Much like bottle makers thatusing gold to turn glass red. Both in very small quantities.

    Economy Jar

    What is the diameter of the opening? It looks a bit smaller in pic than a standard canning jar.

    Today's Discoveries From The Beach

    Thanks. I have thorn bush scratches all over me from that trek Be that as it may, it's always a pleasure searching and finding artifacts. It's an embossed Borden's that can be mistaken that way due to my poor photography skills.

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    That mug base hutch must have drawn a tear to your eye - not diminishing the others, but I'd praise the day I found a whole one of those. Also, I'd love to find a whole Pond's Bitters too. Anyhow, they are the ones that keep us digging and hunting.
