    That's a nice collection! Labelled pharmacy bottles are one of my favourite types to collect, each one is usually quite rare and they can be had for such little money. I'm surprised that you say...

    Well you'll need to find the dump first. If there are any hillsides or creeks on the property, start looking there. If you don't find one there then things get harder. Sometimes you can find dumps...

    Wow that's a great find for a junk store! I've never found any Canadian bottles that early. Is it pontilled? That's also really interesting that it says "pop works." That can finally put to rest...

    Looks like a pretty standard quart-sized beer or other beverage bottle. Not super common in Canada although they were used in some places, particularly Southern Ontario. Also fairly unusual for it...

    They were made for quite a while. I've seen ones which looked like they dated to the 1880s and ones which could have been as recent as the 1930s. Yours is one of the later ones I think. An yes...

    Nice ones! Only one of these that I can remember seeing before is the Zero. By the way, do you know what the story is behind that long anti-theft warning on Winnipeg bottles of that era? Was there...

    Come to think of it I'm not sure if they still sell glass ketchup bottles here either. Can't remember seeing them for the last few years. I don't know if I've even seen glass ketchup bottles in a...

    Common aqua? I don't think I've ever seen these in any colour other than teal. Aqua is probably a lot less common.

    You could always post them in the "What is it?" section, even a picture of a bunch of them is often enough to identify several at a time. If some stand out we can ask for more photos.

    No I think you're more or less right on the date for the ones in the back, apart from maybe second from right. They look like tooled-lip bottles. Probably not actually pre-1900 but from around 1910...

    It looks European, probably dating to around 1870-90. Those red-bordered labels were for home use, so this was probably part of someone's homemade batch of wine.

    Canning jars very frequently had bubbles in the glass. I'm not sure how much pressure a canning jar is supposed to take, but it doesn't seem like they exploded often even though the glass was fairly...

    I think these types of caps are also meant to be used as shot glasses. Can't give you any info on the company though unfortunately.

    I think they're pretty recent as well. I don't know if these sorts of bottles are particularly collectible or not. I imagine the space they take up must mean that there aren't too many people who...

    I was wondering about that mark, I decided it must not be a pontil. It doesn't look rough enough, plus that appears to be a pretty small bottle so the mark on the bottom must be tiny.

    Yeah I could definitely be wrong on thinking that the pickle jar is American. It looks different than the British pickle jars I've seen but I also haven't seen many American ones to compare it to.

    They both look to me like they date to around the 1870s or so. I'm not sure if the pickle bottle is American or British, I'm leaning towards American. If it is British then it could be a lot later....

    Screwtop said "Straight sided brown ones?" and you replied "Hobbleskirt." Regardless, any straight sided Coke is a nice find! Can't help with rarity on the hobbleskirts unfortunately, I don't have...

    These are referred to as flavour bottles and held other flavours that the local franchisee would sell apart from Coca Cola. They came in all sorts of different deco designs, and I don't think I've...

    Brown hobbleskirt Cokes? I've never heard of anything like that, do you have a picture?

    I imagine it depends a lot on location. I remember trying to sell these in BC for $1 each a decade or so ago. I never managed to sell a single one. You used to be able to pick them up for pennies...

    They're certainly getting tough to find these days. I've only ever found one, I got excited and took it home but then when I cleaned some of the rust off it turned out to be an antifreeze can.

    Nhpharm, do you know if these were ever manufactured in the US? I've always assumed these to be British, we find them by the bucketload in turn of the 20th century sites in Canada, especially out...

    The initials stand for Joseph. S. Pedersen, and the bottle contained malt extract. It dates to the latter decades of the 19th century, I'm not sure of an exact date range beyond that though.

    Nice find! Yeah the silver gets rejected from those coin counters. The supermarket I've been going to for the past year has one of those machines and I still have never found silver at it. Loads...
