The ground took care of it well. Sometimes the damage comes when trying to clean them off.
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.

I have a glass flower frog, and this piece isn't one of them. It looks nothing like it. There's holes cut in my flower frog as if it was a pen/pencil holder.
Good stuff. Looks fun and interesting. And yes anything from 1800's is old! If some diggers only want bottles under 1850's I'd say they are beyond spoiled.

Also I brought home this Howdy Bottle made by D.O.C. and reinforced it with super glue. The bottom was ready to disintegrate.
I still am not sure if I'll keep it because already have a perfect...

Here's some more broken ones, from yesterday.

Actually yes I always find some to help me get over the broken ones. It's about a 50/50 thing. I'll post photos of those later.

Guys I know, it was hard to just leave them there. But I'm already running out of space for my intact bottles and can't display them all. Just have to pick and choose now.

Thanks for looking Daniel!
That is a really nice bottle. I still don't have any of those. If you are serious about getting batter at bottle photography you will need an actual camera. Cell phone pics that that fog and glare to...

You might be better off just buying a tumbler on Ebay. At least then you'll have it if you need more tumbling in the future.

I wanted to show some photos of various bottles I've come across in the past few weeks while out in the woods. They are all either broken or have bad labels but I wanted to document what is out...

Nice bottles. The barn protected them very well. Better than finding them outdoors. I don't see anything super rare there but they are all worthy of selling for at least $10.00 a piece. The earlier...

By protecting do you mean preventing them from fading? Keep them in a room that doesn't get sunlight, for example using blackout curtains. Or if there is sunlight don't let it be direct. Low humidity...
Nice find! That beats the more common generic medicinal flasks from that era!

Yes I can see how it has that look. I wish I had found a whole set of them.

Thanks for the help guys. I'll go with that. It's an ornate tumbler. I measured and it only holds 5 ounces so maybe it was for alcoholic or mixed drinks.

Yes the other end is open, sorry about that. I tried to search in google images and nothing similar came up. It could be a tumbler but would be a very small one. It might hold six ounces at best.

Today while out on a bottle adventure I found something unexpected. Whatever it is I know it has to be good. It was in an area with bottles in the 1900-1950 range, if that helps. Diameter is 2 3/4"...

That's great! I think so too. I believe Anchor Hocking had an old slogan "Everything is better in glass".
I love that emerald green color of bottles!

Nice little bottle there. I never even heard of that chemical before, but doesn't sound good.

I agree, it really does have a different taste than plastic or metal packaging. Glass seems to be making a slight comeback with the pushback against plastic things.

Today at the grocery store I noticed they were selling singles and 4-packs of glass Coke and Sprite bottles. And the wording on them is in Spanish. I wasn't sure what to make of that. I bought a...
