    I find it remarkable that capers were so popular in the late 18th - early 19th century. I wonder if the WWI interupted that trend.

    Nice find. It can be restored with a new burner/wick and chimney. I have a small night-light that I dug and had restored by a lamp-collector friend. Parts are available at hobby shops.

    Nhpharm gives pragmatic advice. I assumed that otto has some personal reason to want to restore the lip.

    This is a late bottle, much later than the era of pontil scars. The bottoms of such...

    Art glass may have a ground pontil scar, but not utility bottles like this one.

    Repairs like this would require might be done with casting resin or colorless 5-minute epoxy. You can try to match...

    I didn't realize that the forum protected itself like that, sorry about the link. Yes, it is an impressive collection of (relatively) late sodas and mineral waters, mostly Codds and no crown tops. ...

    Thanks, NHPharm. With the Japanese post-1911 crown cap bottles and the British applied crown lip imports pre-1920s, the crown top story is a complicated one. Having admitted that, I still maintain...

    Thank you for the research. I particularly enjoyed reading about the Japanese bottle archaeology. I abstracted a few items from that PDF which address the keys to identifying of some of these...

    Well now, can you please post some images of European and Asian crown lip bottles from your BC dumps. The ynetnews story is mildly interesting, but no crown lip bottles are evident in the images.

    Crown lips are an American invention, and a North American phenomenon. They are not at all common in Europe or Asia in the early 20th Century.

    I think the round bottom started as an approach to insuring storage on the bottles' side to keep the cork wet. I'm not certain to what degree the rounded bottom became a tradition with ginger ale.

    Don't do anything to the bottle! Clearly, the piece has been skillfully (professionally?) restored. This appears to be a museum restoration. Messing with it now risks returning it to pieces.
