Walking lots after a soaking rain always turns up something. I know this one's common and machine made, but is there any way of dating the design styles of Campana's bottles over the decades?
Thanks! I'll take a local Rx any day. Couldn't dig up anything on Zimmer though. There's a huge college of pharmacy here, so most of the local proprietors graduated from there. But can't find...
Recent vacant lot finds.
Zimmer's Pharmacy (couldn't find anything on this one in Philly).
Sadly the base has 2 heel cracks.
Whitall Tatum base mark: WT & Co / Patent...
Found this Victorian era doll head the other day. Anyone know what the backmark means? All Google's been able to tell me is that it's German and dates betw 1860–1890. Any additional info welcome.
Yes, it needs a good soak and cleaning, just wanted to get a shot posted.
New site coughed up a nice squat soda. Smith & Co / Philada. Large "M" on the reverse. Flat base, no pontil. I've found the pony-style Smiths but this has the longer neck and harder shoulder. Am...
Was doing some urban creek-walking and found this eye wash cup. Trying to determine an age...
The base has the Maryland Glass Co "M" and a "5."
So that puts it at 1921–1956, but...
Thx nhpharm, glasshopper55, and sandchip!
Found a large embossed panel bottle —"The Cuticura System of Curing Constitutional Humors" / "Originated by Weeks & Potter Co." 1880s.
Thx Canadacan. Yeah I'm discovering how many small bottlers and brands my city had. Some seem very scarce, but not particularly sought after. lol
Here's one I've never seen.
Majestic Beverages "Midget," ACL, 8 fl oz.
Base: Owens-Illinois, Duraglas. Date code = 53.
My wife was able to read the badly damaged text on the reverse:
Was walking lots today after 3 days of rain. Found a tiny Boericke & Tafel medicine bottle. I know B&T had several pharmacies in Philly in the late 1800s and early 1900s, so I'm guessing it's from...
The stoppers tend to outlive their decanters. I find 'em in milk glass too.
Found this bottle at a partial basement excavation site yesterday.

Wow, beautiful! Never seen one of those salt-glazed jugs complete.
Thanks guys. Was surprised to find it intact. Am guessing the soft ashy fill protected it.
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.

Nice! The embalmer's is a win for sure. That Rail & Harbor milk might be worth something too.
Your "Gack" is as good as mine.;)
Found 2 complete bottles today—
A squat blob embossed "James Connor Philada" (JC on the reverse) and a stoneware beer stamped "FRED GACK" <?>
From A History of York County, 1907
C.A. Morris, druggist, founded 1823. Merged into Wm. Smith & Co. some time in the 1850s (possibly 1857).
