    That's an odd one, never seen one like that before. I don't think it's very old though unfortunately, the dimpling on the base and the square shape suggests to me that it's from the latter half of...

    Nice bottle, definitely never seen one before though. The graphics are fantastic, I can understand why it's expensive if it's also so rare.

    I have no idea why I wrote Hawaiian Punch, Delaware Punch is what I meant. Sorry Canadacan, there's a Delaware Punch bottle from Victoria, not Hawaiian Punch.
  4. No idea. It's not one that shows up often, I...

    No idea. It's not one that shows up often, I think I've only ever seen one or two other examples. There's one from Vancouver as well in clear if I remember correctly.

    Very nice! That's a pretty old one. I'm no expert in these things but I'd date it to the mid-19th century. Looks like he was from NYC. Nice American primitive stoneware!

    Does that Hawaiian Punch bottle have a city on the bottom? I've got one from Victoria BC but mine is in aqua.

    Looking up the street is something I almost always do if it's an unusual address. I'm quite certain the street hasn't changed character since the 1930s, the architecture along that area almost all...

    Cool! I've never seen that one either. Not often I see a new brand from Canada either, especially a new Canadian deco design.
    Also, check out that slogan on the bottle in the ad! I wonder who...

    Wow that carnival glass bottle is fantastic, I didn't know that such things even existed. I can see why those would be pricey. I've seen fairly plain Canada Dry bottles in carnival glass but that's...

    That's a strange one, it doesn't say anything else? I'm guessing a "wart skin" was something to be placed over a wart? Odd that there's no brand name on it. Maybe it was part of a larger set of...
  11. Sounds interesting! Can you post a picture of it?

    I love the design on that Graf Zep! I don't normally collect American bottles but that's one I'd certainly make an exception for if I came across it.

    I only ever dug on the Island, so I don't know a thing about sites in the Lower Mainland I'm afraid. I have no doubt that there are plenty of sites around there though. I sure wish I had that kind...
  14. Oh by the way that Peerless Ink is local to you...

    Oh by the way that Peerless Ink is local to you as well, they were a Vancouver company. Common, but I quite like the art deco design on those. These posts give me such nostalgia for BC, lots of...

    That's a nice pictorial design on that one! Never seen it before but wouldn't expect to since I've never lived anywhere near Collingwood. Definitely looks like an older design, probably 1880s or...
  16. I've never seen the mark before but the bottle...

    I've never seen the mark before but the bottle looks like it's from Europe. The European marks are often not as well documented as the ones from North America so finding info can be pretty hard.

    I like that Wright Bros bottle, never seen that one before. Looks fairly early too, I'd guess more like 1870s on that one. Mixed bag indeed!

    It's got the right stuff of being made with techniques that predate modern glass-making equipment, but those old techniques are still widely used for art glass or by glassblowing hobbyists.

    Yeah it's from 1951. The second two digits of that code on the skirt is the date on those US Cokes.

    Yeah I was thinking it was probably 1939 but that 9 sure looks like an upside down 5 in the photo. Still, any ACL from the 30s is pretty early.

    Hmm... this one looks pretty suspicious. I can't say for certain but I think it's a modern fantasy piece. Can you post some pictures of the base and lip, and a close-up of the label and the wire? ...

    I can't tell which way up that date code is facing. It's either 1936 or 1939 as far as I can tell. If the former, that's a very early ACL!

    That's some nice stuff and a great price! I'm really curious about that Tower Root Beer, never seen a quart ACL shaped like that before. Does it have a date code? Looks like it might be quite an...

    Ah, there we go! Dose cups were reusable items, so someone probably kept it after moving from Winnipeg to BC and then threw it away after it was damaged.
  25. Those are a couple of really nice finds! I've...

    Those are a couple of really nice finds! I've never seen a Woodward's ACL druggist before, even if it was a large chain it's still a local chain so that makes it a good one in my books. These ACL...
