Muriatic acid will eat concrete too, so don't splash it on your patio...
I've used this before with good results.
Long Rubber gloves, a splash shield for the face, a full body rubber apron and...
Get a long probe and test it.
The one I dug was about 10-12 feet deep with a solid brick bottom and walls.
Well I've had almost 1000 looks and still no top?
Leon I'm only looking for a top... with maybe a bit of neck.
Here's a picture of the broken soda I'm trying to repair.
I would say not a well... a cistern is more likly.
Seeing as it hasn't been filled in I would say it could have some early stuff in the sediment.
Are the sides brick and mortar lined??
If so get a...
I would call that a sauce bottle, definitely food based as opposed to liquor.
And due to the pontil I would put it in the early half of the 1800's.
American or British is anyone's guess....

Is the indent thin?
This could have been made as a lamp base and never converted to a lamp.
Just a thought and direction to look.
Your dive site has some age to it... that's for sure.
We call them black glass ale bottles.
Most contained some sort of beer or ale.
They can be some of the oldest bottles found.
Made from the...
At first I thought It might have been a VERY early Hazel Atlas trade mark, but the bottle is way to old for them.
There is a few bottles from the UK that have Atlas on them, but...

That's some great artifacts you've found.
Your tiny iron was for collars, cuffs and pleats.
And a rear find for sad irons.
This is all based off the size which looks to be in the 3" range....
Heckler has a nice Cobalt one (lot#18) on right now.
$3750 if your pockets are deep enough...
No wear on the base
Very cool piece thgough

I'm in California and have been a few times.
One of the largest shows I've been to.
Amazing good glass...
Just wish they had it at a better time of the year..
They always seem to get hit with the...

The closure on the $250.. bottle is either a Lighting closure (1875-1910) or a Hutter closure (1893-1920).
I'm thinking the latter...Hutter.
The only sure way to tell if it is original is to dig it...
Out of over 400 looks NO one has any tops???
Well the search goes on....
Well I guess no one out there Digs this age or type of bottle....
The search goes on...

If you forget the path you walk, the trail ahead can be very dark.....
A little punction would help, but WOW
Great post and very informative.
If it is possible to post it here...
What brand and where did you get them.
I'm not sure they will work for my application, but I would...
I'm looking for a Cobalt Blob Top for one of my repairs.
I know you bring home those broken criers and pieces....
This top needs to be in good shape and preferably with part of the neck...
Great ID Wiltshire
Nice pontiled puff
The date range for AZULE Springs is 1885-1890.
I would think much to late for a Graphite pontil.
What appears on the bottom of your bottle (to me) looks like the remains of a rubber stopper used...
So I guess none of you diggers pack home shards like I do.
I even bring home the cool and the rare criers.
Hence the need for the top...
So come on guys let me know if you have a top.....
Thanks for the reply Saratoga,
Style, shape and color are the same as the picture I posted.
It is for a cobalt blobtop soda.
