    It is an odd colour for one of those beer bottles, might have been an imported beer.
  2. I'm not seeing any pictures.

    I'm not seeing any pictures.

    Oh wow yeah I didn't realize how big it was. I've never seen anything like that in use in Canada, I wish it had a paper label as well because I'd be really curious to see who was using it.

    That is definitely not from the early 1900s and has nothing to do with Karl Hutter. That's a no-deposit beer bottle from the latter part of the 20th century.

    That sign is wonderful, real shame that it was cut up like that. I wonder if any have survived intact. Is it enamel or tin? I'm pretty sure you haven't posted that Pacific Dry paper label before...

    That's a great find, what a beautiful bottle! A great picture of the bull, and sparkly mint to boot.

    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.
  16. No I think you're more or less right on the date...

    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...
