    Re: BROOKLAWN CLUB -how old?

    I would say 20's to 50's. From my area the early ones all have a pedestal or foot on the base, which phased out in the late teens to early 20's, replaced with the style shown.

    Re: Ground lip, Pontil whisky decanter?

    A very odd grinding job, very odd indeed. It is so odd that it makes me suspicious, as if the neck had been broken, and they used a Dremel to grind it........ Bottles of this nature typically had a...

    Could it be a Ramsey jar lid?

    This lid has held my eye since I first spotted it in a collection I picked up this week. I suspect it is a lid to a Ramsey jar, it matches the written description, and it sort of looks like the line...
  17. Re: Why'd they not set the milks out for the milkman?

    Good question. Likely a variety of factors involved. Folks could just be careless/lazy, the dairy closed up and did not pick the bottles up. The customer canceled delivery and the bottles were...

    Re: A Question on Strap Side Flasks

    The rounded sides on your flask make it a form we call shoo fly. Studied your pictures well, and the top is applied. Applied tops were used up into the 1880's, then transitioned over a decade or so...

    Refired and tooled crown tops were produced for a time, c.1905 to c.1915. Due to the difficulty of hand tooling the crown top, the crown top quickly shifted to machine production.

    Re: New Unlisted Local Milk(s)!

    Glad to see that I am not the only one with local shards. Those locals can be so elusive, I know my town has a number of milks which are known only from a shard or two. Way to go!
