  1. Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    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.
  7. Yes the other end is open, sorry about that. I...

    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.
  8. What is this beautiful glass piece?

    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.
  13. Mexican Coke and Sprite Bottles

    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...

    Tiny bottles

    The other day I found these three bottles all in one area. They are now the smallest bottles I've ever found. I don't think they can get much smaller than this. Two of them have Owens-Illinois marks...

    That sounds like a lot of the areas I find! It's so frustrating that bricks, chunks of cement, and building materials crush most of the good stuff. But there's always a few bottles that survive.

    Thank you for sharing your story. I'm glad you are okay! The key is to never panic in any situation like that. Because most of the time a solution is always nearby, just like you happened to find...
  17. Iggyworf, that's a nice variety of Like bottles!...

    Iggyworf, that's a nice variety of Like bottles! The diet 7Up might be rare since the diet sodas are not drank as much as regular.

    Looks like that one might be from the early part of the 1910's decade.

    The seller must know it's rare and is seeing what someone will pay for it or not pay. Unfortunately until someone else has another one on there, he controls the market.

    Thank you for the post! I have always loved using that website for research on bottles!

    According to this website http://www.antiquebottles.com/coke/ the Cokes with a shoulder script date from 1910-1919 and therefore it is most likely ABM.

    Small world. I just found two of them recently in PA. Like soda existed from 1962-1969. My bottle is just like this one except mine doesn't say a product of 7-UP. And mine was made by Anchor Hocking....
  23. I've never owned a bottle made by...

    I've never owned a bottle made by Illinois-Pacific glass so I have no idea what their codes mean. But I can tell you that bottle is listed as rare in Bill Porter's Coca Cola book, and there is one...

    Welcome to the site. Like Glasshopper55 said, there's not a lot desirable from that era but there are some. Maybe you can find some embossed bottles. Anything with ACL will be in bad shape. Milks are...

    That's a very solid bottle! No wonder it has survived this long. I've never seen one like this either. How much does it weigh in comparison to a regular hobbleskirt bottle?
