    It is a very rare closure...I had seen it documented on only one bottle (not this one) previously. Not sure what it does to the value of the bottle but there are closure collectors so it definitely...

    VERY NICE and rare patented stopper...that is a Whitman closure, patented on April 9, 1878 and likely out of use a few years later. That is the first time I have actually seen one intact on a...

    That's a pretty early bottle and the closure looks unusual. Could you post some close-ups of that closure? I'm thinking this is a very good bottle...

    That's a beauty. They are fairly tough to find and are definitely in demand. Prices seem to range around $175-$200 for them.

    Since this post back in 2016, I have learned that there is another version of the script jug marked "Lithia Spring Water, Londonderry, N.H." There is at least a few of these floating around...if...

    I'd recommend a Ph neutral glue rather than normal Elmer's. Something like a Jade 403. You won't see a difference between it and Elmer's in the next 10-20 years, but you might in 50...

    I've dug one of these in Galveston, Texas, so I think they are from a big company. I haven't figured out what one yet though!

    I like them to show their age and history. Unless they are an inherently beautiful bottle (which most honestly are not) I don't really feel like tumbling them is worthwhile.

    These machine-made Sawyers come in a bunch of different colors, this being on of them. Usually they are aqua but I've seen them in sapphire blue, amber, olive, cobalt blue, clear, citron, etc.

    The closest I have come was a blank one (has the measurements embossed but no druggist name). I think they are just something that didn't really get thrown away in an outhouse...I have a collection...

    Good luck! Some of my best digs have been cisterns, but 3/4 of the ones I have dug have been empty. The ones I have had good luck with have all been full of 1900-1920 stuff...guess that is when...

    I doubt it. That likely dates a bit earlier...late 1880's-early 1890's I'd guess. Maybe a mold number.

    Is the bottle special to you in some way? Otherwise honestly it is a lot of work for a bottle that is worth less than $10 and dates to the 1880's.

    I've always considered "Hock Wines" to be the thin tall nearly shoulderless wine bottles with a small or non-existent kickup.
