    Crosse & Blackwell pot

    Was digging at a new site today. Not the honey hole i'd hoped, but there was some cool stuff. The best was this complete Crosse & Blackwell Anchovy Paste pot. Am guessing 1880s.

    I found Jesus

    Milk glass votive fragment. Unfortunately the candle holder and base are both absent. I'm guessing 1880–1920(?).

    Thanks guys! I knew I'd get some great info.
    Spirit Bear —There's no volume embossed on it, so pre-1913.
    And UncleBruce's info puts it no earlier than 1897.
    Thanks again!

    Pre-Prohibition beer?

    Roadside find. ABM crown, American Brewing Co–Phila. Google shows American Brewing Co breweries in lots of cities, so I figure it's common. Even so, any info on time period appreciated.
