    I always check Ebay first when I need to research a bottle. A Charles and Company recently sold on there. They made whiskey and / or bitters. I'm not sure about the other bottles....

    That is a shame about your bottle collection. Even though the storage facility was not at fault, they should have insurance for such things. I guess it depends what is in the fine print of the rental...

    As others said, the cap isn't original. But for a buck you can't go wrong. Going by the case wear on the bottle, it has been refilled and re-used a lot.

    Vick's then Emerson Bromo, and then Milk of Magnesia is a distant third. Vick's are everywhere and almost never broken because they are so small. I don't even bother with them. I keep Emerson Bromos...

    If the haze doesn't personally bother you, keep it the way it is. But if you are wanting to sell them, some buyers will make a big deal about haze. Especially ones who expect vintage items to look...

    Usually a bottle is what it says it is. Looks like a cork bottle so that's a great find.

    Put that bottle in a vault somewhere. I've never seen or heard of one of those. It is nice that it didn't have to be destroyed like many prototype bottles were.

    Looks like ketchup to me too. Knox Glass also made a lot of milk bottles. I think I have a few.

    I don't know much about the logo but feel like I've seen it somewhere before. Maybe on Ebay. Run a photo of the logo or bottle through Google images and see if you get any similar results.
  12. M. Allgeier Sons Brookville, PA Beer Bottle

    Today I happened to get very lucky and I found this M. Allgeier Sons Brookville, PA Beer Bottle at a thrift store for just $2.00. As soon as I saw the bubbles and seams on it I knew I had something...

    Very nice find there.

    Bottles in this condition from this era might actually be hard to find. Not too many people were keeping them, and the ones outdoors would have nothing much left on them. The only thing I don't like...

    Nice collection of bottles. Even the scenery in the background is great!

    I don't know how either. They are everywhere in PA and I have too many of them.

    Those blue rectangular bottles are definitely more rare to find.

    That is a fine collection of bottles there. Something to be proud of. Especially the amethyst one.

    Thanks, it really can be. I have some older ones, but nothing like some of the members here. I don't know the spots with the 1800's bottles around here.

    Glad you came back. I wasn't here before so I didn't know you then. You are right, glass is beautiful. I hope you find many more nice bottles like those ones in your future adventures.

    I don't see the photos either. I think they didn't upload correctly. This site has a lot of tech issues that should have been resolved long ago. It makes new users not want to stay around very long.

    I had a request to post photos of recently found bottles that weren't broken so here they are. Also some jars too.

    A 1942 Rolling Rock Bottle from the Internal Revenue Tax Paid era.
