    J.H. Tienken Pint Beer

    Looking for info on this one. "J.H. Tienken Wilmington N.C." on front slug plate, "This Bottle Not to be Sold" on back, "C 6" on bottom. Found info on the brewery on line, little known brewery in Wilmington around 1885. Have seen one bottle embossed "J. Haar & Tienken" that looked similar...

    Aqua Bromo Seltzer Bottle W/ backwards "Z"

    No mark, but the bottom looks thin and curved upward, like a small kick-up.

    Aqua Bromo Seltzer Bottle W/ backwards "Z"

    Digging in a Victorian period trash dump many years ago of the many things found were 65 cobalt blue Bromo Seltzer Bottles, all hand blown, and 1 aqua example with a backwards "Z". I know it as an early example of this bottle and have wondered about it's scarcity and value, especially with the...

    Possible Roman Period Bottle?

    Thanks for your info. i'm still left wondering about this one, but leaning towards fake, the one example you found has a design like mine, but differs a lot in patina and delicacy. Also, the beautiful iridescent patina seen on many genuine examples of ancient glass is mostly absent on others...

    Interesting L.Q.C. Wishart's Pine Tree Tar Cordial

    I to love the crude imperfections of early bottles. I have an early Bromo Seltzer in aqua with a backwards "Z" I will be posting soon. Think I know how that happened, but I am curious about it's value.

    Interesting L.Q.C. Wishart's Pine Tree Tar Cordial

    I have an L.Q.C. Wishart's Pine Tree Tar Cordial that has an interesting double impression of the "1859" date. Has anyone seen this before, and does it do anything for the value? Bottle is far from sparkling mint, but is in good shape. It would be interesting to see it tumbled.

    Possible Roman Period Bottle?

    Wow! Loved the tutorial, specially when he tossed the fake at the end. My bottle had aspects of real & fake pieces, but seemed to lean towards real. I will be looking at museums to see if someone will take a look at it. thank you.

    Possible Roman Period Bottle?

    Not all, but yes. I found several on line in museum collections & auctions. including some that have the distinct applied spiral on the upper half. Also, the patina on this bottle is different than any I have dug, it is heavy with some tiny dark inclusions.

    Possible Roman Period Bottle?

    Hoping someone out there knows ancient glass. Found in a flea market for 10 bucks, it appears to have hallmarks of Roman bottles I have researched on line, it has a hazy lightly pearlescent patina, applied handles & applied spiral on the neck. Also, a crude open pontil. I'm sure Roman bottles...
