    Might it be a knock-off label-only competitor to Mellin's Infant Food?

    Depending on scale, I'd say that the leftmost shard next to the soda shard was a "puff" blown bottle, 1840s.

    Wow, it's survived so well!

    Whatever are they doing on the lots where they demolish the houses? What replaces the houses?

    The milk bottle people may know what the chemical composition of ACLs were as they changed from the 1930s to today. The process was called pyro-glazing.

    Usually, ACL Cokes look something like...

    It was probably a 1950s ACL-only Coca-Cola bottle where the ACL (applied coloured label, which is baked on) degraded in the ground.

    Elixir Vial?

    At the Grand Rapids bottle show last month, I was given this bottle.

    Yes, the light passes through that one quite nicely. I did something similar (blindly, as the sun was in my face, with curiosity as to how it may turn out) with a Art Deco soda.

    They appear to all be 1970s commemorative flasks, often put out by Wheaton Glass Co.

    It's a blob-top. I never found much on it other than that he was a general bottler. If I recall, he was active from the 1880s to early 1900s. You can PM me if interested for more photos, or I can...

    I just wanted to say, I love the depth of research going on here. There's not much more thrilling that discovering things that haven't been known for 100 years.

    It's not the Flint I'll be at. It's the Grand Rapids one on February 23rd.

    I'm afraid that I dunno any sources for Mexican bottles.

    Leon, I have one Grand Haven beer or soda. G.H. is down the road from me. Hah hah.

    We hope to see you at the G.R. show.

    I'd not call 50-year-old antique. In America, most museums consider century-old antique. In places like England, antique is more like 200 years old. I suppose it's all relative, but I'd say the...

    Leon, it would definitely be good to see you, but not much Detroit stuff you don't already have comes there. I only have a decanter from Detroit that I thought I sold but refound. Silver Rye, or...

    The example I have left isn't the nicest of them. It's small, clear, stained, and only shoulder-embossed "U.S.A. Hosp. Dep't." It doesn't even sit straight due to how it was made. I can offer you it...

    I do like branded porcelain stoppers and think they'd make a neat collection, but they are, as others are saying, hard to find in good condition on their lonesome. I've only dug up one intact, myself.

    I feel like this is actually more costly for a company, as this would require a secondary machine to produce versus doing it all on one with the old metal tops.

    I still prefer glass, myself. :P
