  1. WTS Pontils: Labeled or Embossed: For Sale

    I am downsizing my bottle collection further (down to about 10 bottles once this is over). Currently I am offering the following bottles up for sale here before I put them on eBay.

    I have a bottle made in 1894 or 1895 with Registered on it.
    Definitely seen by the mid 1890s, but I suspect it goes back to the early 1890s in some areas.
    Registered probably meant the facility was...

    There's over 60 bottlers and producers of drinkable liquids known from my home town outside of milk and medicine. You'd be lucky to find 40 in the library, museum, newspaper, and internet archives....

    Linseed oil darkens over time and cannot be removed. It's the disdain of many conservationists today.
    I don't recommend trying to clean or coat the crates. Anything done is likely to cause...

    Depending on scale, I'd say that the leftmost shard next to the soda shard was a "puff" blown bottle, 1840s.

    Wow, it's survived so well!

    Whatever are they doing on the lots where they demolish the houses? What replaces the houses?

    The milk bottle people may know what the chemical composition of ACLs were as they changed from the 1930s to today. The process was called pyro-glazing.

    Usually, ACL Cokes look something like...

    It was probably a 1950s ACL-only Coca-Cola bottle where the ACL (applied coloured label, which is baked on) degraded in the ground.

    Yes, the light passes through that one quite nicely. I did something similar (blindly, as the sun was in my face, with curiosity as to how it may turn out) with a Art Deco soda.

    It's a blob-top. I never found much on it other than that he was a general bottler. If I recall, he was active from the 1880s to early 1900s. You can PM me if interested for more photos, or I can...

    It's not the Flint I'll be at. It's the Grand Rapids one on February 23rd.

    I'm afraid that I dunno any sources for Mexican bottles.

    I'd not call 50-year-old antique. In America, most museums consider century-old antique. In places like England, antique is more like 200 years old. I suppose it's all relative, but I'd say the...
