    Do you have a metal detector? Might help finding a privy or household garbage dump.

    Seems like the "1930s - 1950s" dump is older than that, given the coins you found.

    It'll be an exciting...

    Hi Tombstone Brick: I'd think the bottle has to be post-1912 because New Mexico became a state in 1912. The "N.M." embossed on the bottle could mean New Mexico Territory, but I don't think so. I'm...

    Yes, gone are the days when one could enter a construction site. There were bottles found in this dump that were made from the 1860s to the early 1900s, some even had their labels still intact. ...

    Thanks CanadianBottles for your assessments. Yes, it's probably a candy bottle, the two large "lens" focal pieces are hollow and probably used for sweets. Miraculously it did survive in one piece! ...

    Beautiful bottle! I'd say it's a sauce or toilet water bottle, probably the latter or for something related to women's products. It has what seems to be a floral design and thus seems a bit too...
  21. Milk Glass Binoculars - Candy Bottle?

    Hi Everyone,

    I found this in a large, pre-1908 Chicago refuse site, over which the River View amusement park existed from 1908 until the late 1960s. The part of the dump that was exposed during...

    Thanks for your comment saratogadriver. Yes, they must have had an applicator, thus no residue on the spout! And the pretty blue color would motivate somebody to rinse it clear - thus maybe the...

    You've brought up a good point RIBottleguy!! Come to think of it, there isn't any residue of mucilage on the pouring spout at all. One would think there should be from pouring it 135 years ago. ...
