    The bottle form is certainly from 1880s up into early 1900s.

    I've not seen beer put up in that bottle type before. I've mostly seen labeled spring waters.

    I think those amber ones are less common than the green ones. Still a lot of discussion revolving around this Persian glass. Too bad saddleflasks.com is down as Phil has been one of the rare...

    That is just an awesome figural. Definitely worth the cleaning. Bet that form wasn't a great survivor, with the narrow base and the rounded sides. Just looks like it would tip over easily around...

    Maybe some sort of little blotter for the tip of the nib? With patent applied for and being pre-abm, it's pre 1900. probably 1890s. Neat little ink. A lot of these sorts of forms were sold as...

    the two globs are nice, late 1700s to early 1800s and if in good condition carry some value, certainly above $100 apiece. Others on here can get you a closer date with the form of the bottle and...

    Most stuff from post 1900 probably isn't worth the time to wash it, although there will be sodas and some other forms that may be rare and have enough value. You should see if you can find someone...

    I bow to your extensive knowledge of bottles of that age Harry. Sure isn't my area of knowledge, not much out there for inks that old. I was just saying that the bottle, if new at the time of...

    The three bottle's lip finish most closely matches the one for 1790-1800. The question is how much room for error is there in that chart? Was that lip made beyond 1800? Older Bottle making...

    I'd say 1870-1890 would be a safe time frame, with that lip suggesting the earlier part of the time period. But none of our time estimates are 100%, they sometimes used forms earlier than we think...

    that looks like it would polish up to a really neat cornflower blue, not just your typical aqua. 3x on citrate of magnesia. They seemed to be a product that came in very uniform packaging.

    It feels very Pier One to me, but I can't find anything exactly like it, and it does appear to be an applied lip, not ABM. The fancy round window and somewhat gothic door motif on what's supposed...

    Alcohol bottle, either beer or liquor of some sort. British or colonies. They were made in very basic and similar form over a long period of time from maybe 1850 or so to after 1900.

    The screw cap appears to be some sort of bug dope, ala Off. Early 20th century as an early screw top. Maybe 1905-1920s? Not much value in most bottles from that period, not yet anyway...
