    Ga Ga for Greeley's

    Great Greeley's on Ebay but... Just search Greeley's Bitters.I don't know how to link items on my phone. I might have started my color run with this one but inside edges if lip look ripped up. Could be factory as the guy states and probably is and he has many pics but it bugs me none the less...

    hello from harlan indiana

    Sounds like a dream dump! Must be good size too. 60 or so years of city dumping? Wowza. I'd pitch a tent on that spot. Don't forget to drop us a pic or two of the bottle layer. Bitters to blob tops.Medicines to milks.Great age span on that spot. Sounds like a honey hole! Johnny M.

    Ga Ga for Greeley's

    It was online bidding. As usual, everybody piled on at the end. I get deals at times on other groups of smalls like medals,tokens,etc but you can just about never steal a good bottle. We are a voracious hoard for good glass! Johnny M.

    Ga Ga for Greeley's

    Amelia Jeffers out of Columbus Ohio. They auction estate collections etc and don't specialize in bottles.This was just one of the lots. I asked for extra pics and got 2 but they didn't add them to item description so I was possibly only guy who got extra pics. They showed it lighter but still...

    Ga Ga for Greeley's

    They called it green with amber tint and it can turn greenish in different lighting but I think it's more if a peachy topaz. Website pics had it looking like a dark puce tone but while pics were crisp and clear there was no backlighting at all to show color really. Just dark looking. Odd color...

    Ga Ga for Greeley's

    Picked this up at an online auction. Paid a pretty penny but the pics from auction were dark and made it look dark puce or something. People saw it and bid but bailed far below what I feel this color is worth. Couldn't believe the color when I got it. Cost like 8 bills including premium and...

    What are these?

    What was the glass factory known to be producing? Do you know the name of the works and dates of operation? Where was it? (State) May be a clue in what their main product was.Often they supplied odd products, not just bottles. Just a thought. Johnny M.

    Dr D Jaynes Expectorant

    You certainly are a trooper scaling that hill! I'm nature minded as well and an ASPCA member too. I love animals in general and like to leave the woods alone to them. A real shame how we crowd them out of their environments. I used to dig a dump in New Hampshire and had a little chipmunk friend...

    Old marbles

    I agree with the sulphides but really good sized funky colored swirly marbles can be good too. Maybe post a pic of your jars and somebody can tell you about what they see. Johnny M.

    Dr D Jaynes Expectorant

    You're probably in a rural country dump and they are usually shallow in my experience. If you found lots of broken pieces you're probably in the heart of the area but if there is a ravine below then most certainly check it out with test digging. I found a pontil dump like this once and it looked...

    show us your food bottles

    Yeah I was stunned by the color. Kinda plain design but such a super shade of green. I have seen a few of these on Ebay over the years in dark but more traditional greens but always badly cracked and even saw one with a hole and cracked. It's a little smoker that's for sure! Thanks for your...

    Marshall Field and Company jar

    The inside neck of the bottle is ground in the photos it looks like to me, thus a matching ground stopper would seat airtight. I'm still going with a cosmetic or some product that had essence as the stopper is meant to preserve the quality of the contents. Maybe not smelling salts as most seem...

    Marshall Field and Company jar

    Just Google vintage smelling salts bottle.Many have similar dimensions to yours. They were abundant in the 19th and early 20th century and are still produced. Johnny M.

    Marshall Field and Company jar

    I'm thinking the dimensions and ground stopper finish suggest a smelling salts bottle perhaps. Johnny M.

    Dark green bottle with horseshoe makers mark

    Post any with embossing to start. That's an oldie you found there so the age is good it appears. Nice find! Johnny M.
